Product Description
February’s Maple Leaf Reads is a collection activities based on books written by Canadian authors.

This product is a part of my Maple Leaf Reads {GROWING BUNDLE}

Reading to my students is the highlight of my day! I love sharing my favourites with them and discovering new books from their selections during our weekly visit to the school library.

As a Canadian, I try to expose my students to books from Canadian authors and this resource is a result.

February’s Books
• Viola Desmond Won’t Be Budged! – Jody Nyasha Warner
• The Water Princess - Susan Verde*
• Just One Goal! – Robert Munsch
• You’re Mean, Lily Jean – Frieda Wishinsky

*Susan Verde is an American author. This book was illustrated by Canadian born Peter H. Reynolds. I was looking for books for Black History Month and fell in love with this one.

For each book, there are activities to expand upon the read aloud:
Comprehension Focus
A Comprehension Check is included for each book for students to recount facts from the story and/or do some inferring. There are also response pages for the comprehension focus.
Grammar Focus
For the grammar focus, there are task cards and a recording sheet, worksheets, and for some books there are matching games.
Vocabulary Activities
There are vocabulary cards for the word wall, matching cards and a matching worksheet (word-definition), and a list of definitions for your reference.
Whole Group Activity
The suggestion for a whole group activity will typically be an anchor chart about the comprehension or grammar focus.
Math Prompt
A number talk prompt or open-ended question is included to add a bit of engagement!

How can I use the activities?
• Add the activities to your literacy centres
• Use during a guided reading or small group lesson
• Independent activities for your high flyers

This resource is also perfect for sub plans. Leave the story and it’s corresponding activities for your sub and you’re set!

Please note:
This resource was created for students in Grades 2 and 3. Some of the activities may be challenging for grade 2 students depending on the time of the year and some activities may be too easy for grade 3 students. There are many activities included allowing you to differentiate and choose what works best for the students in your class from year to year.

Be sure to check out the preview to get a better idea of what’s included!
