Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing Teaching Novel Unit ~ Common Core Standards
Sep
13
2011

This is a custom written literature unit to be used with Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume.

This unit is designed to be used with some student/instructor interaction. It can also be revised as an independent study for the student. It is written as a 14-day unit but can be slowed down or sped up as needed for the individual student. It is written for the 3-5th grade reading level.

It would work great in a one-on-one setting for home school or for a teacher to use as a resource in the classroom for a small group or entire class. The unit is designed so that you can start teaching immediately with little to no preparation on your part. Great time saver!

This unit contains:

  • Teacher Packet containing detailed daily lesson plans, suggested spelling list, answer keys, and suggested curriculum connection activities.
  • Student Packet containing vocabulary activities, comprehension questions, and extension activities that correlate with the book.
  • An Assessment Packet that contains a vocabulary quiz, an end of the book test in both a short answer and multiple choice format, and an end of the book writing assessment.
  • Common Core Standard alignment for grades 3-5.
  • An After the Book Activity Packet that can be used with this unit or any book. This packet is also sold separately titled Fun Book Report Activity Ideas~Book Report Alternatives.

I wrote and developed this unit myself. I am a certified teacher in Nebraska. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Iowa State University and a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Nebraska-Omaha. In addition to my Masters I have taken graduate courses on teaching of the Gifted and Talented. I have successfully used these activities in the classroom setting many times.

This unit is aligned with the Common Core Standards for Grades 3-5.

2011

Research suggests that doing word sorts is a powerful tool to help young readers develop their skills.  This product includes word sorts for each vowel.  The word sorts can be used as word work, in a literacy center, as morning work or as independent practice.  They are appropriate to use with students in Kindgarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade and homeschool settings.

Alien Zap Dolch Word Games
Sep
13
2011

This packet includes 3 games to help students practice sight words from the Dolch list.  The games are designed to be used as  center activities or for practice in small groups.  I also use these games in my room for "all done" actvities (for students to play when they finish their work).  All three games have the same directions, just different words and a variety of alien pictures that I'm sure your students will love.  They are easy to prepare and easy for small groups of students to play independently.

The games include:

1. Pre-primer Alien Zap

2. Primer Alien Zap

3. 1st Grade Alien Zap
