Are you looking for a way to engage your learners while learning the alphabet? Write the room is a fun and interactive way to get your students moving around the classroom. After placing word/concept cards around the classroom, students will walk around with a clipboard and recording sheet. Students write the words/answers they find on your chosen recording sheet.
Reading is important part of the day for any student. Close reading takes your reading block to a whole new level. Using short passages and text-based questions your students will dig deeper for meaning in text and think more critically. This set of fictional close reading passages are perfect for first graders (mid to end year) or the beginning of second grade.
