In need of supporting activities and documents that go with lessons in Unit 1 of the American Reading Company curriculum? These activities allow students to continue to practice the skill taught during Readers' Workshop in their independent reading time. Each page is labeled with the day lesson it coincides with. This allows for documentation of the skills as students practice through out the unit.
*Used with the Magic Tree House books: and .
I've created top hat organizers, created sorting activities (relevant and relevant details), matching activities (prefix/suffix sort), story maps (SWBST), and more in both worksheets and posters for specific and nonspecific to the ARC curriculum.
In need of a flip book to use while teaching figurative language? Your students can use the flip book while reading as well as to support their writing. I have provided an explanation for smilie, metaphor, idiom, and personification, given examples and have left room for students to find their own examples in their reading. Personification has a spot to illustrate an example as well.
Included is a colored and black & white version of the flip book for your preference. The flip books are in landscape and there are two examples to a page.
