This set of lesson plans, resources, and activities is for use with Duck for President, Henry and Mudge and the Bedtime Thumps, Madeline, Olivia, and Thank You, Mr. Falker.
These resources can be used for whole group, small group, and independent instruction – which makes these them a smart choice for literacy centers or Reader’s Workshop. Each lesson plan follows the format of a mini lesson and provides an opportunity for students to turn and talk about how they make connections while reading. Students will also have the opportunity to practice the strategy with a page by page guided “worksheet” and write about their reading with a common core aligned Reader’s notebook prompt.
Here's What You'll Get and Why:
My goal was to make it easy to teach readers how to think about books through the lens of comprehension strategies. This book bundle will help you teach readers how to make connections while reading popular picture books for second grade readers. You’ll get the following set of resources for each book:
- Making Connections Comprehension Strategy Lesson Plan
- Page by Page Practice Worksheets
- Answer Keys
- Text Specific Reader’s Notebook Prompts
- Making Connections Graphic Organizer
- Complete Common Core Alignment
You’ll also get a set of Making Connections Task Cards that can be used with early finishers or as an extension activity for all students.
Last, I’ve included an Making Connections Poster for your classroom library. Hang the poster in your classroom to remind your students what good readers do. You could also make copies of the covers of each of the books used in this book bundle and hang them with the poster to remind students of the work they did while reading each of the books.
