We had concerned parents when reading test grades at the beginning of the year plummeted for classroom assessments, but we worked collaboratively with our grade level teams and found ways to support all learners. We also decided to create ways for parents to become more involved. Not all of our families have Internet access, so I created weekly reading bookmarks.
Students needed guided practice with the daily assignments, so I created the trifolds that were similar to what we used with our old series. I also found that I wanted a weekly overview of all the tested vocabulary as well as enrichment vocabulary that my students would encounter in the text. So I created those pages as well.
I'm excited to share those with my fellow teachers who will be using this series next year. All of these items are available at a very low price in my TeachersPayTeachers Store. You can buy 10 homework bookmarks, 5 comprehension trifolds, 5 sets of vocabulary cards, and 5 weeks of vocabulary overviews for only $5.00. You may also want to buy the entire semester or year as a bundle and save money. The entire year is only $24 for all 6 units.
Our parents loved the weekly homework bookmarks to help support and guide their child at home each week. The comprehension trifolds were an awesome way to help build skills and have another way to record a quality assessment grade. Hopefully you will find these useful in your classroom.
