This file is for the Approaching Level Guided Reading Books in the Wonders Reading Program for 2nd Grade.
Use this while working with your guided reading groups or when the kids are working independently.
Included is Unit 6, Weeks 1-5.
Each book comes with 2 pages. On top of each page lists the focus for each book including: Essential Question, Comprehension Skill, Comprehension Strategy, Phonics, Vocabulary Strategy, and Vocabulary. The first page for each book contains the graphic organizer to help apply the skill and strategy for the week. The second page has thorough comprehension questions. The way I apply this in my classroom is the day that I meet with my group, we fill in the graphic organizer together. When I'm working with another group, the "Approaching-Level" group does Independent Reading and answers the comprehension questions. They keep their work for me to check. When we meet again we reread the book again and talk about the comprehension questions that they answered.
The titles that are included are
Week 1: "The Apples of Idun" by Betsy Hebert
Week 2: "Wind Power" by Ann Weil
Week 3: "Digging for Sue" by Susan Evento
Week 4: "How to Be a Smart Shopper" by Jonathan Chen
Week 5: "Matt's Journey" by Clara Stagefoot
I really hope that this helps you with your small groups!
