Frankenstein Doesn't Start Food Fights, by Marcia Thornton Jones and Debbie Dadey (Bailey School Kids, Book #47)
I created these independent reading packets for two second graders who were reading on a third grade level. They worked on them independently during Reading Workshop while I met with other small groups. I set them up to use as a guide while they read, then I would check in with them once a day or so to see how things were going. The packets are aligned with the core reading standards and include questions and activities for all comprehension strategies. The students usually completed one packet in 1-2 weeks, working for about 20-30 minutes a day.
