"Read one page of a book. Raise one finger for each word on the page that you donít know." Simple instructions for categorizing books by difficulty, from "easy to read" to "too hard". Four bookmarks per page.
This list features books at a variety of levels, each set in one of the fifty states. From "Bird" (set in Alabama) to "Hope Was Here" (Wyoming), this book list will help students "read across America".
Betty MacDonald's "Hello, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle" is used to help students develop critical thinking skills while enjoying children's literature. This unit includes discussion questions, an activity page, and a test.
Formatted like a standardized test, this 13 page document tests knowledge of spelling, parts of speech, capitalization, punctuation, and more. These are approximately the skills tested in fourth grade, although state standards vary widely.
Write and illustrate an alternate version (or a faithful rendition) of the Three Pigs. Following directions, practicing word sounds, reading comprehension, basic graph skills, and more are included in this engaging multitask unit.
Our new "first sentence" series asks the question: "You can't judge a book by its cover, but can you judge it by its first sentence?"
With these simple worksheets, each containing a different sentence from a classic story, students will exercise their skills of prediction, research, and creative writing.
