Help your students practice their comprehension skills.
This unit is designed to provide extra practice to your second grade fall reading comprehension curriculum. It follows my own classroom procedures for reviewing and introducing new comprehension skills the first couple of months of school. The materials could be used any time of year if your curriculum map is different from mine. The materials would also be appropriate for 3rd grade intervention or 1st grade enrichment.
Students practice their close reading skills, marking the text when necessary. They build the reading patterns that they will use through out the year. I have provided original stories so they can mark the text and then go back and review what they thought was important as they answer the questions or do the activities.
The focus is on: Sequence, Retell, Story Structure Key ideas, Problem and Solution, and Character Response. If you used one per week as a supplemental lesson, the unit would take around 6 weeks.
Tie writing into the reading comprehension skills. Students practice writing complete sentences and writing one paragraph, using a frame.
**Please note: There is a companion book in my store which focuses on comprehension skills for informative text.
