This product contains: - 1 short reading passage - 1 application activity - 1 writing prompt that goes along with the passage - Photo example/answer key Each reading passage is simple & not overwhelmingly long like textbooks are. Students can listen to you read, read silently, in partners, or in small groups highlighting important words and concepts as they go. The students then apply what they read with an activity & responding to a writing prompt. Don't use interactive notebooks??? Just use colored paper!! Glue the passage to one side and have the students do the interactive activity on the other! Can easily be 3-hole punched to put in a binder, hung on the wall, or slide into a folder!!
