PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Looking for Engaging ELA Practice? Check This Out!

I created this pack to supplement your ELA curriculum for the winter. Twenty-eight different activities are included, with sample photographs for students to see the final product. Some of the activities are open ended and can be used with any text. Please note, there are no answer keys for these activities.

The following activities and concepts are covered in this pack:

*Literary and Informational Passage- Students read the passages and create and answer questions about the text.

*Retelling- Two different open ended activities for retelling. One focuses on plot elements (character, setting, problem, event, solution) and the other focuses on beginning, middle, and end.

*Main Idea- Students identify the main idea and three supporting details. This is an open ended activity and can be used with any text. Another main idea activity is included. Students read four short passages and determine the main idea of each. Two versions of the passage are included. One has picture prompts to assist in decoding and the other does not. Two versions are included, a lower and higher reading level.

*Context Clues- Several activities for context clues are included. In the first activity, students read four short passages and determine the meaning of an underlined word using context clues. The second activity has four vocabulary words from the book Brave Irene by William Steig. Students write the meaning of the words using context clues as the teacher reads the text aloud. The last activity is a blank format in which the teacher can write any four vocabulary words from any text for students to determine the meaning of using context clues.

*Character Responses to Major Events- Two activities are included. In the first students read a passage and complete questions about the character’s responses. Two versions are included, a lower and higher reading level. The second activity is an open-ended graphic organizer that can be used for any book.

*Comparing and Contrasting- Two activities for comparing and contrasting are included. The first is a simple Venn Diagram. The second is a Venn Diagram with a text frame that compares the texts for students to complete. Both activities are open ended and can be used with any book.

*Irregularly Spelled Words- Students read a fluency passage with several irregularly spelled words and then draw a picture to illustrate the story.

*Prefixes and Suffixes- Three activities are included. In the first activity students read words with prefixes and match them to the corresponding picture. In the second activity, students read words with suffixes and match them to the corresponding picture. In the third activity, students read a word with a prefix or suffix and create a sentence using the word.

*Noun- An opened ended noun graphic organizer is included.

*Capitalization- Three different activities are included to practice capitalization. Students sort common and proper places, events, and things. Then, students rewrite the noun correctly because the capitalization is “jumbled.”

*Plural Nouns- Two activities are included. In the first activity, students write the plural of several given nouns and then illustrate and write a sentence using five of the nouns. In the second activity, students write the plurals of irregular plural nouns when given picture prompts.

*Identifying Nouns and Verbs- Students identify a given word as a noun or verb and then use it in a sentence.

*Irregular Past Tense Verbs- Two activities are included. In the first activity, students read sentences and fill in the irregular past tense verb when given the present tense verb. In the second activity, students write the past tense verb of several given present tense verbs and then illustrate and write a sentence using five of the past tense verbs.

*Verb Tense- Students sort words into past, present, and future verb tenses.

*Possessive Nouns- Students write and sort possessive nouns.

*Contractions- Students write the contraction when given the two words that make up the contraction.

*Snowflake Bentley Research- Students read the book by Jacqueline Briggs Martin and research about his life in the flip flap book. Then, students write a biography “mini book.”
Snowflake Research- Students research about snowflakes in the foldable. Then, students write an informational paragraph using the paragraph frame foldable. Finally, students can publish the paragraph on the final draft paper.

*Narrative Story Writing- Writing planner with character, setting, beginning, middle and end for narrative writing.

Happy Learning!
