Instructional Ideas
  • Use in a language arts reading lesson, or when surveying a new text in social studies, science, math, or any other subject
  • Have class members save the reference materials in a binder so they can use them throughout the year
Classroom Considerations
  • Doesn't come with a table of contents, so the packet is a little disorganized (but materials are still valuable)
  • Provides most of the activities and worksheets in both English and Spanish
  • Focuses on literature and informational text alike, making it versatile for your language arts reading unit
  • Comes with graphic organizers that would work in additional reading exercises, such as cause and effect charts and Venn diagrams
  • Includes additional links and materials for extending the lessons
  • None
