January 2013--This product has been updated and improved!! In addition to all of the skills listed below, this workbook now covers more areas in language arts as seen on the state test and benchmark tests, including questioning skills, more compare and contrast, sentence correction, and writing skills. Plus, cute Scrappin Doodles graphics have been added to make the workbook more student friendly!
This is a 22 page workbook to accompany the story "Jalapeno Bagels" by Natasha Wing. Skills covered include: author's purpose, context clues, comparing/contrasting, consonant clusters, digraphs, compound words, inferences, quotation marks and punctuation, summarizing, contractions, syllables, predicting, fact/opinion, parts of speech, singular and plural nouns, synonyms and antonyms, suffixes, multiple meaning words, true/false, homophones, reference materials, verb tense, sequencing, making connections, matching, abbreviations, following directions, vocabulary, pronouns, proper nouns, subject/predicate, spelling, main idea of a page, details to be added to a page, analogies, sentence combining, correct word order in sentences, soft and hard c and g, sentence types, guide words, and ABC order. This has been an invaluable tool in covering state standards and helping my students with comprehension and numerous language arts skills.
The page numbers referenced in this workbook correspond to the story in the Houghton Mifflin® Anthology "Delights" from their California Reading program. If you are using another version of "Jalapeno Bagels", this will still be useful to you, but you may have to modify a few things. If you like this product, check out my workbooks for other stories in the "Adventures" and "Delights" anthology books.
