Product Description
Looking for Easy Literacy 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, and crayons.

The following activities include passages:
• A Toad on a Mission(Literary Passage/ Lexile Level 410)- Identifying Long Vowel Sounds, Identifying Nouns and Verbs, Generalizing Spelling Patterns, Asking and Answering Questions
• Lucky the Leprechaun- (Literary Passage/ Lexile Level 430)- Summarizing, Character Response, Identifying Nouns, Verbs and Pronouns, Asking and Answering Questions
• A Leafy Solution(Literary Text- Lexile 450)- Plot/Story Structure, Cause and Effect, Identifying Multisyllabic Words, Asking and Answering Questions
• The Hunt(Literary Text- Lexile 420)- Story Structure/ BME, Inference, Identifying Short and Long Vowel Words, Asking and Answering Questions
• The Magician(Informational Text- Lexile 580)- Main Idea, Identifying Nouns and Verbs, Identifying Common and Proper Nouns, Asking and Answering Questions
• Life Cycle of a Honeybee(Informational Text- Lexile 630)- Main Idea, Comprehension Questions, Asking and Answering Questions
• Homeroom(Poem- Not Leveled)- Comprehension Questions, Finding Examples of Alliterations and Rhyming Words

These activities DO NOT include passages:
• Extending a sentence
• It’s Raining Contractions- Brainstorming Contractions
• Luck of the Irish- Identifying Words with Prefixes and Suffixes

Please note that since many of the activities are open-ended, there are no answer keys included in this pack.

Also, 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!
