The following are graphic organizer worksheets that can be used with the stories in the Reading Wonders second grade unit 4 week 3 lessons.
There is one to go with the story in the Reader’s Writer’s Workshop book – “Happy New Year”. Also, there is one for the story in the Your Turn practice book – “Giving Thanks Two Times”. Finally, there is one for the green leveled reader – “Akita and Carlo” and the blue leveled reader - “A New Life in India”.
In addition, there is a page with two QR codes. One is for a short video teaching comparing and contrasting and the other one is for a BrainPop Jr. video on Similes and Metaphors.
Finally, there is an OOPS game that can be printed onto cardstock and cut out. This works great for a center! It focuses on the spelling words and review words from last week. The students play as a group. One student chooses a card and reads the word. If they get the word correct, they get to keep the card. If they draw an OOPS! card they have to put all of their cards back into the pile. The OOPS! card then gets taken out. Play until all cards have been collected or time runs out. The one with the most cards is the winner.
