This reading teacher activities “toolbox” includes five five ready-to-use mini lessons. Plus, planning charts to help you focus on your next lessons.
You can use these mini lessons to teach a whole class lesson, book clubs, independent reading, tutoring, small group, reteaching.. and the list goes on!
You’ll get these five mini lessons in the reading teacher activities toolbox:
- text overview
- author research
- understanding the genre
- making predictions
- summarizing a text
These added materials will help you teach each lesson:
- ways for using the mini lessons
- tips for teaching a mini lesson
- genre characteristics chart
These include “into” lessons that will help prepare students for the text they’ll be reading and “through” lessons that can be used during your literature study.
You’ll love that you can use these mini lessons throughout the year — not just once. You’ll find yourself returning to them as you teach new pieces of literature.
Use with novels or short stories. These mini lessons are a life saver in teaching close reading and summarizing.
