This bundled packet was created using the Gradual Release of Responsibility Framework! The Framework allows for students to work where they're at...assessing them before you teach, teacher modeling, differentiated collaborative group practice that is scaffolded according to their prior knowledge,independent practice and finally, a post assessment.
It is aligned to the Common Core Standard 2.2:
CCSS RI 2.2: Identify the main topic of a multiparagraph text as well as the focus of specific paragraphs within the text.
AND CCSS RI 2.3: Describe the connection between a series of historical events, scientific ideas or concepts, or steps in technical procedures in a text.
This packet was designed to integrate our Science standard with Animal Life Cycles! This gives more meaning and purpose to your reading instruction!
This bundle contains the following items:
Anchor charts/Presentation slides for mini-lessons
Partner Practice Activities
Collaborative Grouping Guide
3 Collaborative Activities
Life Cycle Observation Log
Each of these items are available in two separate packs if you don't need the bundle. You can find them here:
RI2.2 & RI2.3 Main Idea w/Animal LIfe Cycle Gradual Release 4-Day Lesson Plans
RI2.2 Main Idea w/Animal Life Cycle Gradual Release Activities & Assessment Pack
***Note: This is a difficult standard for Second Graders. The strategies included in this lesson are meant to be taught over two weeks. If you would like ideas on how to extend these lessons to last for two weeks, we have another week of plans using these strategies with a science integration of life cycles of animals. You can find this pack here:
RI2.2 Main Idea with Science Gradual Release Mini-Lesson & Activity BUNDLE
These lessons were designed for our high-performing second grade class but could be used for third grade due to the complexity of it.
