As a veteran teacher with three children I have learned that life happens. While I tend to be a warrior when I am under the weather and come to school no matter how close to death I may be feeling, I can’t do the same when one of my children gets sick at 3 AM. Rather than be unprepared for these unfortunate circumstances, I created this…a resource that I can have ready to go in a binder that is always on my desk in case I am not able to be at school.
This resource includes:
-4-page high-interest reader’s theater script
-Reader Response Questions
-Context Clue Word Work
-Story Summary Organizer
-3-Text-Based Journal Prompts
-Story-Based Word Search
-Story Cover Makeover
Summary: The Mustangs basketball team has had a rough start. After their coaches have them watch a varsity game to observe what a successful team does to win, things start to pick-up for the boys. They even make it to the league championship game, but not without a bit of worry.
Your student-athletes will be laughing and cheering for the characters in this fast-paced, high interest script with reading literature activities.
Before the school year I get this binder ready to go, labeled (EMERGENCY SUB PLANS), all copies are made(at least 25 of each), and I update with student attendance, lunch count, and current class seating charts. While I always prepare my classroom for the following day before leaving, having this binder on my desk for a sub, administrator, or instructional teammate to grab in a pinch is ideal. This way my students are engaged, productive, and learning even when I have to be out of the classroom.
