One of my favorite things I've ever made!
When I taught 2nd grade I created this book to complete with my students. The book covers the following topics: syllables, parts of speech, proper nouns, common nouns, verb tense, compound words, synonyms, antonyms, singulars and plurals, reference books, abc order, vowel sounds, rhyming words, abbreviations, quotation marks, the parts of a friendly letter, the parts of a book, contractions, and reading comprehension strategies. The book also includes tips and hints for performing your best on any exam.
The book is designed so that you complete the left side of the page with the students. Students complete the right side of the page independently. Perfect for guided practice!
After completing the book with the students, they kept it at their desks to review anytime they finished an assignment early. It really improved their standardized exam scores compared with strategies I used previous years.
Although I used this with 2nd grade students, it would also be great to use as review with 3rd grade students or to give a high achieving 1st grade student to complete over the summer.
