Key SKILL REVIEW and TECHNOLOGY engagement! Kids LOVE this interactive method for practicing the 4 types of author’s purpose found in writing! By using the description on the 16 different game cards, students will make a determination about the author’s purpose and be able to gain immediate feedback by scanning the provided code! Grab an iPAD, iPOD, or other device and download a free QR scanner app and you are ready to go! This activity will provide tons of practice and reinforcement for the whole year! Use for a station, partner work, or independent review.
I currently teach an integrated 4th grade Language Arts and Social Studies class. Although I've been teaching for 20 years, this is only my second year with an integrated curriculum. I love it! I've traded both my social studies text and reading series books for rich literature, primary documents, hands on games & activities, reader's theaters, and close readings to meet and extend all of my language arts standards and social studies content. This connected approach to learning makes so much more sense to both my students and me! It is what has driven me to create so many of my own materials and resources. My hope is that it can benefit other teachers who are attempting this integrated way of teaching!
