Knowing the difference between fact and opinion is an important skill for our learners to master. It helps create stronger readers with improved comprehension skills and it’s a skill they’ll continue to use throughout their lives. Building proficiency in this skill requires practice. To master the ability to differentiate between facts and opinions students need lots of opportunities to read and analyze text. Using the Fact & Opinion Digital Reading Toothy Freebie provides a no-prep method for targeted student practice. You simply upload it to your learning platform and assign it to your students. So simple!
Using Digital Toothy To Help Build Proficiency
With this product, students will be asked to choose which sentence is either a fact or an opinion. The Fact & Opinion Digital Reading Toothy provides students with low pressure, self-checking opportunities to practice what can be a challenging skill. With 25 sets of sentences, students will have plenty of chances to succeed plus the added incentive of filling Toothy’s mouth with teeth.
How Do The Digital Task Cards Work?
Students will be asked, “Which sentence is a FACT?” or “Which sentence is an OPINION?” They will be given three sentences to choose from. Students will then click on their chosen sentence. If they are correct they get to watch a quick animation of Toothy getting a new tooth! If they are incorrect, they get to try again.
All digital reading toothy sets give students the option of listening to text before reading it themselves to make them more accessible for struggling readers.
If you would like to check your students’ answers for grading or to check for understanding, there are recording sheets that can be printed and used along with this resource.
