I don’t know about y’all, but testing anxiety is certainly getting to me! These next 19 days until the test are going to be pure torture. I just want my kiddos to do their best, and I worry about the pressure we put on them and how much we expect out of them. However, I also know they are all so capable and want them to have that confidence!
One of the biggest concepts I feel my kiddos struggle with this year is Informational Text Comprehension. So, I have been using my Informational Text Pack to review our strategies and get extra practice. It has been going wonderfully! I have noticed such a difference in their ability to quickly identify key details and main idea, and improve upon so many other strategies.
Today we worked on Chronological Order of Text. Here are some pictures of what we did:
I pull up the first worksheet for each standard in the pack and we do it together as a class on the Smartboard. I color coded our “trigger words” and showed how they create events on the timeline.

Thanks for linking up! I love projecting things on the board to do together like this. Sadly the actual smart board is no longer smart so I have to project onto the whiteboard. It loses the "coolness" factor then!

The Informational Text Pack looks great! It went on the wishlist. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
