This reading guide focuses on cause and effect, compare and contrast, and overall comprehension of the Phyllis Reynolds Naylor book Eating Enchiladas, which is part of the Simply Sarah series. I am using these activities with a second grade reading group, but the activities can also be used whole group. Included in the reading guide are three cause and effect sorts for students. Cause and effect worksheets are also provided, where students can fill-in either the cause or the effect for the information given. I like to have students complete the sort one day, and then during the following lesson work to complete the fill-in chart. A three column chart for comparing and contrasting the two main characters is also included, along with a pre-made list of details to complete the chart. You can choose if your students need the details provided, or if they are up to the challenge of completing their own compare and contrast chart. Discussion questions incorporate basic comprehension skills, along with questions that promote higher level thinking skills. I've also included a list of extension activities for incorporating cross-curricular learning.
