Country Fact File Template

This fun country fact file template will have your kiddos entertained for hours. There are several ways this fact file can be used. Here are a few ideas for you; *** In pairs** – This is a great opportunity to observe how your kiddos interact in a partnership. Watch who takes the lead and who designates what. *** In small groups** – This is an excellent time to work on a project as part of a group activity. Again, this is a good time for observation. Homework – Send home as a weekend project or over the course of a short period of time. Speech project – Speeches are often hard for some kiddos, making it fun and interesting with all the research being conducted by them. There are many things that this would cover in the ccss. Supply – That supply file would be excellent with this added activity. This would be ideal for morning/afternoon work. Individually – Independent work. What your students will need to complete the country fact file; They will need access to the internet – this is so they can research their country of choice If no internet access is possible then they will need access to some material with the country either you have provided them with or of their own choosing. Please note the worksheets can be printed on A3 by changing your printer settings! Please note: Watermarks/blurred images will not be in your downloaded file!

Reading Record Sheet with Comprehension Questions - Free!!

(0)
Reading records are a good way to assess how much reading a child has done. This can be either at home, school or in reading groups. However, its not just about a child reading for a certain amount of minutes, it’s also about their understanding (comprehension) of what they have read. Some students find it very easy to skim read or are able to decode words with ease but when it comes to the actual understanding of the text or book they have read it can sometimes seem as if they haven’t read it at all. That is not the case its just their comprehension. This reading record sheet aims to help you to help them by knowing if they understand what they have read. What’s on the reading record sheet? There are 7 sections (1 week of reading) Each day has a different comprehension question (some are easier than others) Please note: Watermarks/blurred images will not be in your downloaded file!
