for academic bundles & resources

As a former elementary teacher, I hope that the Beyond the Text Bundles designed with each book are easy to use and print, so that you can seamlessly continue the connections and comprehension from the read aloud and conversation starters in each book, into small group and independent work with the bundles.

You can also visit our
TeachersPayTeachers store linked here for full bundles, individual activities, and lots of extra exercises - including some freebies! 

The bundles are broken into
three leveled options including one for Pre-K & Kinder, First & Second, and Third & Fourth grades, with sample learning objectives listed. Many activities also have correlating video clips on our YouTube page to accompany your lesson!

Each Beyond the Text Bundle includes exercises in: 

Reading Comprehension: exploring a comprehension strategy such as summarizing, main idea, compare & contrast, character traits, making connections and inferencing

Vocabulary Building: highlighting five words from the text to include definitions, synonyms and antonyms, or using context clues for understanding 

Word Mechanics: center-based independent work to review phonics strategies, rhyming pairs, word sort, matching, etc...

Writing Prompt: encouraging writing in descriptive, narrative, how to or informative styles

S.T.E.M. Exercise: a technology based exercise relating to science, engineering or math 

Building Character: a character building activity that correlates to the challenges faced in the story 

Whole Group Activity: a group project-based task relating to the story to experience at home or in the classroom 

Think Like An Author: prompting students to put themselves in my shoes to write the next page of Blooming Rose Blasts Off!

Think Like An Illustrator: a black and white, partially illustrated page to embellish and reflect their self-written author page 

Blast Off Bookmarks: a design your own rocket bookmark template to print, along with instructions for adding your own ribbon or yarn tassel 

Learning Objectives: grade level learning objectives for all activities are also listed in the bundle to make lesson planning a breeze
