Let's Learn about Veteran's Day Partner Play
If you want a highly engaging way to celebrate Veteran's Day AND work on fluency and comprehension, then this resource would be a great choice. It includes a three page partner play and supplementary materials including the following teaching options:
The Partner Play
A column notes page for Veteran's Day
A vocabulary page to practice with using context clues
Questioning task cards (12 cards) that hit the higher level of Blooms and require students to cite text evidence and explain their thinking with a response sheet
A comprehension page for during or after that requires students to record text information
A writing page for summarizing or for writing thank you notes.
This would work well to use in pairs during Read with Partner, Guided Reading time, or as part of your Veteran's Day lesson. The target grade level is fourth or fifth grades.
