Learning Objectives

  • Planning for a substitute in the classroom has never been easier than with this week-long sub packet! Students will hit a home run in reading comprehension and grammar review with two baseball themed narratives: Casey at the Bat and Girl Wonder. Reinforcing basic multiplication skills is the emphasis in math as they interact with their peers and practice their math facts with some fun baseball related games and worksheets. Students will also focus on directions: reading them, writing them, and following them!
  • In this week, students will be able to:
    • Examine a poem narrative and answer comprehension questions.
    • Compare and contrast two narratives on the same theme.
    • Follow, give, and write directions that are clear and purposeful.
    • Identify adjectives in sentences.
    • Determine the meaning of words using context clues.
    • Review their math facts through a series of games and activities with their peers.
    • Solve math puzzles using clues and peer discussion.
    • Use chronology to complete a non-fiction timeline.
