Do you need a consistent routine of instruction that ensures you are covering all of your reading and writing standards?

These walls provide daily and weekly formats that dove-tail smoothly into all the core subjects by utilizing the highly-effective before, during, and after reading and writing instructional activities and strategies.
Marvel at the simplicity of Nancy’s ten-day language arts’ lesson plan to frontload vocabulary and text structure, increase fluency and comprehension, plus develop higher-level thinking skills that connect to writing.
Before reading, Develop academic language and robust vocabulary through the Word Masters & Movie Scripts lessons.
Kick-off reading with the multi-sensory narrative or informational text structure chants, then adhere post-it notes directly to the text to identify those parts while reading. Engage students with the Read, Act-It-Out, and Record activity to provide direct, explicit reading comprehension instruction that includes monitoring, summarizing and clarifying, as well as visualizing, questioning, predicting, and making connections.
After reading, think, talk, and write! Begin with retells to learn sequencing and to check for understanding. Next, analyze the text by selecting from a menu of activities that connects to writing: Create Come Alive Boxes for character and setting analysis; Plan and write engaging narratives utilizing elements from the focus text; Identify important information learned to write informative/explanatory papers that include compare & contrast thinking structure. Finally, learn to form and write opinions that evaluate the text, backed by evidence.
Nancy has also included a chapter for small group reading. Learn about her unique decoding boards for extensive phonics practice students utilize before reading their books.
