Tsunamis & Natural Disasters: Magic Tree House No Prep Paired Reading Trifolds 

Natural disasters are a fascinating topic for students and are often included as a component of studying the world around us during science. This bundle includes trifolds for the Magic Tree House books High Tide in Hawaii (#28) and the Fact Tracker companion Tsunamis & Other Natural Disasters. 

These fun activities allow students to delve into the books at a deeper level, while allowing you to see their understanding. Questions focus on guiding students toward using text evidence to support their answers while encouraging students to develop their own thinking about the information. The pairing allows students to focus on a daily genre-specific reading skill or strategy. 

Versatile enough to be used in whole group, small group, or as an individual book study, each section of the trifold is focused on a different essential reading comprehension skill and aligns with state and Common Core standards and is perfect for cross-curricular connections between reading, science, and social studies.

• 2 Magic Tree House High Tide in Hawaii novel study trifolds (10 instructional days) with accompanying teacher guide outlining daily reading, student objective, and key academic vocabulary students will need to know

About the Seller

The Third Wheel: Upper Elementary Made Easy
4 Reviews

Hi!

My name is Rebecca, and I am the busy teacher-momma behind The Third Wheel. With a four year old and two year old at home, my hands are full trying to maintain a balance between all those things I have to get done for work and all the things I want and need to do to keep things running smoothly at home.

 

Education is my passion, and I love being a student and a teacher. After getting my third masters degree, I am taking a little break from my own formal education. However, I still try to learn something new each day, just like I ask my students to do.

One of the biggest things I always try to think about how I can make the learning stick through engaging activities that don't require a ton of prep work or supplies. My passion is to help teachers and home school families make preparing fun, engaging learning opportunities easier so they can spend more time focused on the rest of what life has to offer.
