These craft projects are a great way to end each unit of the Reading Streets Second Grade Curriculum.
The craft activities featured in this purchase are based on one character from each Reading Street unit. For example, in Unit 3, the children read the story Anansi Goes Fishing. The craft that goes along with Unit 3 is making Anansi the spider from cardstock. After each craft is constructed, children can then write about their favorite story from that unit. In their writing, students can practice supporting their opinions with evidence from the text.
Children love these crafts and writing about their favorite stories. This bundle includes craft activities for the second grade Reading Street Curriculum, Units 1 through 6.
