This lesson plan goes with the ReadingA-Z book "Darby's Birthday Party" (Book Not Included- must have a readinga-z.com subscription to access book). I created this lesson plan to use an an "emergency substitue plan" in case I am unexpectedly out. Since I am a reading specialist, I have only one low group of 2nd grade students, for a 1/2 hour per day. The plan goes through the entire book, a total of 5 days. The plans are very detailed. It could also be used for a low level guided reading group.
