This is an extremely flexible tool that covers key ELA skills for multiple grade levels. It is accompanied by a lesson plan that helps gets your centers up and running.
This form is designed to be used with chapter books in small groups for literacy centers but can also be used for homework. Students can self-monitor, self-assess and receive weekly feedback from the teacher.
After an introduction/review of specific ELA skills, the double-sided worksheet allows four small groups to work either independently or collaboratively (20 - 30 minutes) while the teacher can work with a group on a particular skill: Summarizing, Main Idea, Vocabulary Words, Figurative Language, or Theme.
Books assigned can be at different reading levels, student choice, or chosen to supplement the E.L.A. curriculum.
