Tuesday's Treasure Box: ReadWriteThink

If you are working with students in grades Kindergarten through 12, ReadWriteThink.org could should be a resource for many of your therapy sessions. 

Easily use the many lesson plans to connect to your student's curriculum with little to no adaptations. 

For grades 6 to 8, ABC Bookmaking Builds Vocabulary in the Content Areas, uses a content area unit to create a specialized ABC book. Students select words to define and illustrate for each alphabet letter. 

A K-1 lesson plan, Learning Vocabulary Down By the Bay, has students sing the song, follow along in a book containing the pictures and lyrics, and participate in vocabulary learning activities related to the song.  

Just scrolling through the over 800 fabulous lesson plans, I saw topics such as figurative language, phonemic awareness, describing character traits with adjectives, making predictions, and formulating questions.


The Student Interactives section is fabulous. There are 57 interactive (and fun) tools for students to use to learn about language. According to information found on the site, the most popular are Comic Creator, Construct a Word, Plot Diagram, Word Family Sort, and Story Map

AND, four of the Student Interactives have been recreated as FREE mobile apps.


Check out the Calendar Activities to learn about important events in literary history, holidays, and author's birthdays. 

Under the Printouts tab, find printable sheets for assessment and organizing. 

ReadWriteThink also has a large selection of Parent and Afterschool ResourcesParents will find helpful tips, articles, online activities and podcasts.
