I've been working on some writing tasks for my kiddos over the summer. One of the skills we really tried to hit hard was citing evidence from the text in written responses. I've discovered that with practice, they were awesome at locating the evidence...but when it came to using that evidence within a written response, that was a different story.
This activity guides my primary kiddos through the process. They highlight evidence, then use that evidence to write a response to a question. I've built in supports with sentence starters so that they can learn/practice the framework of a good response.
