This story about a child who lives in a suburban setting helps teach about the attributes of life in the suburbs (living in community) while addressing grade 2 Common Core ELA reading and writing skills. A combination of photographs and geometric art add interest and offer extensions for discussion.
Included are 3 pages of questions tailored to the Common Core with plenty of additional discussion / writing opportunities that can springboard off the story.
This story can also be used in guided reading groups.
