Product Description
Looking for Rigorous and Engaging Activities?

This pack was created to help second grade teachers find simple and engaging activities for students to complete during the literacy block. These activities were designed for assessments, independent or partner work and would be perfect for centers. I designed many of the activities so that students read a passage and complete comprehension work. Then, there is an independent, open-ended activity to match. Some of the activities are open- ended and require students to review a familiar passage to find words. In an effort to make the activities as novel and interesting as possible, they require a variety of SIMPLE materials that are readily available in the classroom. These materials include: a paperclip for a spinner, die, scissors, glue, magnifying glass, and crayons. A bingo dabber or crayons may be used for one activity.

The following activities include passages:
• Heart Broken on Valentine’s Day (Literary Passage/ Lexile Level 490)- Character Response, Fact and Opinion, Asking and Answering Questions
• The Trouble with Love Bug- (Literary Passage/ Lexile Level 470)-Predicting, Summarizing or a Story Map, Identifying Parts of Speech, Asking and Answering Questions
• A Snowy Day (Literary Text- Lexile 230)- Story Structure, Inference, Identifying Short and Long Vowel Words, Asking and Answering Questions
• Groundhog Day (Informational Text- Lexile 570)- Main Idea, Irregular Past Tense Verbs, Identifying Nouns and Verbs, Asking and Answering Questions
• Be Mine (Poem- Not Leveled)- Comprehension Questions, Finding Examples of Alliterations and Rhyming Words

These activities DO NOT include passages:
• Extending a sentence
• Sentence Switch-A-Roo- Rearranging a Sentence
• Multiple Meaning BINGO- BINGO game with Multiple Meaning Words (can be completed independently)
• Contraction Sundaes- Contractions Word Search
• Love Stuck by Parts of Speech- Identify and Color Parts of Speech
• Past Tense Love Birds- Irregular Past Tense Verbs Word Search
• Spin a Verb- Spin a Verb and Write a Sentence Using the past Tense of the Verb
• Groundhog's Shadow- Arranging a Sentences in a Paragraph to Find Topic Sentences, Details, and Closing Sentence.
• Please note that since many of the activities are open-ended, there will not be answer keys for these pages.
• Please note, you will need to show students how to use a paper clip and their pencil tip to create a spinner. Simply have students “pin” the paperclip to the center of the spinner with the pencil tip. While the paperclip is “pinned down,” have students flick the paperclip to spin around!

Happy Learning!
