Family and Friends: Extra Support Lessons (Theme 4)

Family and Friends is the theme of a unit offering extra support lessons. Follow each lesson plan's teach, blend, guided practice or practice/apply routine to reinforce concepts such as clusters, responding to reading, drawing conclusions, high frequency words, compare and contrast similarities and differences within texts, blending short vowels, and sequence of events. All brought to you by chants, grand discussion, and practice pages.

Instructional Ideas

  • Place worksheets in plastic sheet protectors, write on them with washable markers, and reuse for the next small group
  • Take a brain break; recite chants to continue the learning process while taking a pause in current instruction 
  • Reinforce classroom routines; invite learners to describe steps using sequence words 
Classroom Considerations
