This bundle includes:
Vocabulary Cards – I use this for my bulletin board in my classroom. I also do book studies with my students. I split my kids into groups and they do activities like this for several different books. So for vocabulary, I just give them the words. They cut them out and discuss the definitions. Then they draw a picture to go with each word. Last, they create a poster with the words, definitions, and pictures. Then they present them to the class. Don’t have enough time for that? Just print off and touch on the words before the read aloud.
Pre-reading Questions – Use this for morning work the day you do the read aloud. This will help the students connect to the story before you read. Also helps to boost background vocabulary.
Comprehension Questions – 14 questions to go with the story. Not just your normal write in the answers. I tried to break it up with a multi-select questions, and pulling sentences from the story in a style that you would see on the current types of standardized tests.
Research Worksheet – This worksheet is designed to remind students of research skills and to use critical thinking skills to decide their best option. This worksheet would be great for homework.
How to Hide a Second Grader worksheet- This worksheet gives a lead for a writing assignment that students will love! It gives them a change to be creative with their writing. I have also included sentence starters so students can fill in the blanks and still work on detailed sentences.
