This is a set of 3 activity sheets to accompany the Phonics Library story "Our Classroom Zoo Book" from the Houghton MifflinÂ® reading program. New! Revised in February 2011 to include writing skills as tested on state tests and benchmark tests! These are great activities for independent work during universal access time. The sheets for this story cover the following skills: "oo" words, "ew" words, "ue" words, "ou" words, parts of speech, synonyms/antonyms, fact/opinion, personal connections, writing skills, matching skills, subject of a sentence, quotation marks/punctuation, ABC order, making predictions, author's purpose, possessives, generalizations and details, and table of contents. In my classroom, the children complete these during independent work time, then we check answers together. They love doing them!
