Magical Product Swap!

MrsStanfordsClass
I am so excited to be linking up with Jessica from Mrs. Stanford's Class for the Magical Product Swap! This is my first time participating, I am excited to share with you how it went!!  I was given an Awesome product from Tara at And They all Fall Down!

The All About Mammals Unit she shared with me is wonderful!
My kids loved learning about different mammals and I loved how easy it was to differentiate and assign in centers. Here's a look it in use......
This unit comes with five different reading passages. Each passage is written at both a high and low reading level making it so easy to differentiate. I was able to print off the passages in the level each of my students needed and put them in their reading folders so they each had the one I wanted them to work on!
  
The passages come with a comprehension check that includes asking the students to highlight where they found the information in the passage. We have been practicing showing where your found the information a lot! I was so glad this skill was included!
The comprehension checks are offered at a high and low level as well, and answer keys were provided. I printed the answer keys and let the students check their work when they finished! They loved being able to see what they should have highlighted as well as the answers!
We used the graphic organizers to record facts about mammals, this helped them organize their thoughts to be included in the flip book and a paragraph that they would be writing about mammals.
The flip books were a fun way to show off what they had learned about mammals. They completed them at an independent center and did a wonderful job! They had to cut out each square and line them up so that the smallest was on top and the largest on the bottom. They did it on their own and they looked great!
They used the facts they recorded the previous day on the graphic organizer to record facts into the flap book.
 
They were so excited to take the books back to their regular classroom and share with their friends. This was a perfect way for them to practice Retell of non-fiction passages which was our focus skill this week.

This as a fabulous unit. It also includes maps that students can color to show where each type of mammal is found, and a larger flip book to included the entire mammal unit on. My students loved reading the passages and it gave them great practice on looking for details, showing where they found them, and retelling what the main idea of the passage was about. Head on over to Tara's blog and store to check out more of her amazing work!! I know you'll love it all!!
