I am very excited to introduce my latest informational text comprehension product based on the book "Mummies, Pyramids, and Pharaohs" by Gail Gibbons. Included you will find a variety of challenging literacy activities based on the book being read aloud to your students. As early literacy learners are beginning to learn to read, the decodable material they read usually provides very little text that is worthy of “deep” comprehension, yet these same students generally have a rich oral vocabulary and the capacity to discuss material, both fiction and informational that is read TO them. Activities such as the ones in this packet provide students with learning opportunities to develop and strengthen the comprehension strategies they will need to master the Common Core State Standards and continue to grow as literacy learners. Depending on the age and reading level of your students (particularly 2nd grade students), you may decide to use the pages as material for guided instruction, whereas older children would benefit from working on the activities independently after reading "Mummies, Pyramids, and Pharaohs" by Gail Gibbons.
Included in this product:
• Determining meaning using context clues
• Main Idea &Details (students cut & glue details under Ancient Egyptian main idea categories)
• “Deep Thinking” (students complete sentences by adding the “because why?” part)
• Visual learner activity (students create their own “text feature” by drawing and labeling either a pyramid or the mummification process)
• Vocabulary words (general and content based)
• 4 unique vocabulary building activities
Please take a look at the preview to view the table of contents and some page samples of this product to determine if the instructional material would fit the learning needs of your students. You may also want to take a look at my store at the following link, which features K-5th grade materials in a variety of subject areas.
