Skills Lessons for Further Practice
These will NOT be done in class; however, they're here for your individual practice and preparation! Most of these lessons are structured with the same format. Page 1 is the lesson, explanation, and steps for strategies. Pages 2-3 include reading samples. Pages 4-5 have the practice exercises for the task. The great thing about pages 4-5 is that they can be used for ANY story you read! Continue practicing these skills using articles from the newspaper, magazines, the internet, or any short story or book off of you book shelf (picture books included!). Let me know if you need further information or instructions. The Answer Keys are posted here also!
