This workbook includes 16 innovative, engaging, and extension ideas for improving comprehension - excellent for review and practice. These ideas can be used in all subject areas, grades 4-12. Great for test prep, practice, and review for all subject areas.
I have developed and implemented these activities in my middle school classroom, and in my reading interventions for grades 1-9, for the past 7 years. I have seen great success and improved comprehension at all levels, in all subjects! Students actually beg me to do some of these activities, and they tell me they do them at home on their own as well.
Each activity is labeled to indicate:
*Higher-Order Thinking Skills
Each activity is designed to encourage 100% student participation!
The 16 activities/Ideas include:
*Four Square Flashcards
*Stand Up, Hand Up, Pair Up
*Pictionary, Charades, and 'Picarades'
Students love these activities because most involve movement, interaction, and engaging ways to enhance comprehension of the term beyond just rote memorization of the definition. The best part is that these ideas require little effort to set up, and everything you need is already right in your classroom!
