The purpose of this Independent Literacy Activities resource is to provide independent literacy activities for your Year 5-8 students to complete while you are working with other groups. We’ve also included a version with no year-level titles so these can be used with any level. 
Choices are provided to give your students agency, and a range of activities are provided so students can practice a variety of important literacy skills.
The activities are presented and levelled in such a way where students can complete these without needing to interrupt you to ask lots of questions.
These activities would work as part of any literacy rotation you run in your classroom. They could also be homework tasks or be used by early finishers.
**This product features NZ/AU/UK spelling and paper sizes**
