This packet is a set of comprehension questions for the book Capital Mysteries #3 The Skeleton in the Smithsonian. There are questions for each chapter. It is a good way to for the students to practice answering in complete sentences and going back in the story to find the answer. I have also included journal prompts for each chapter as well as a daily worksheet (with a rubric) for the students to keep track of their progress while reading the book. I have used this for my higher level second grade students. It has been used during guided reading as well as for independent work.
I have also included the common core standards that this unit can be used to teach for grades 2 and 3
