If you will be learning about the Chinese New Year, consider using a KWL to get started! A KWL helps assess your student’s prior knowledge, assists the student in focusing in on the topic, and then provides a way to summarize what he/she has learned.
KWLs are a simple but very effective tool for all ages. Younger students can dictate to their parent or teacher. Older students will be able to fill them out on their own.
This product includes both vertical and horizontal versions.
