New... Open Court Decodable Worksheets
As you know or may be just discovering, as soon as we hit unit 7 the work gets signifcantly more difficult for our little angels. To help prepare them for the upcoming assessments and really focus in on comprehension, locating information in a body of text, and summarizing a story, I decided to create a set of Unit 7 decodable worksheets that will really hone these skills.
I began today using one of them as a whole group activity with lots of teacher modeling. I am hoping that after completing a few together most of my first graders will be able to complete these on their own or in partner teams.
Each page (one per decodable) contains 3 questions that align with the Open Court e-presentations. Students will simply read the questions, locate the answers in the text, and then respond using complete sentences. (I ask my kiddos to reprase the question when answering)... I have included a student sample to show you what I am hoping for!
Following the 3 questions, they are also asked to summarize the story in a sentence or two. (See FREE sample below)
My Unit 7 Decodable Worksheets (decodables 88-101) are available now in my TPT store. Hopefully some of you will find them useful. Come check them out!
HERE and try it out with your kiddos. Then, make sure to come back and let me know how it went ... and of course, please offer any suggestions to make these better!
