Video overview of my lessons
This is one of the hardest standards for me to teach, but also one of my favorites. I love the discussion that comes out of this standard. Since I started late in Better Lesson and my time is wrapping up, I want to at least give you a quick overview of how I attack this standard. Here is my video overview. I'll include as many resources as I can that I've made to try to get my kiddos better at this standard. Some passages I've grabbed from Study Island, so I can't share them, but you can really use any story.
This is the last fiction overview I'll be including, but I also include comparing theme in this unit, which I have a modified version of here. I also hit summarizing quite a bit by using the mnemonic, Somebody, Wanted, But, So, Then.
