This is a fun and engaging activity to gets students acquainted with their reading book!
I use this during the first week of school to see how familiar kids are with textbooks (i.e. Where is the table of contents?, etc) and also to give them a chance to flip through their book before we start using it weekly. This could also be used in a literacy center or used as homework!
This one specifically goes with the 2nd grade edition of Reading Street but I have included an editable Word file so you can adapt it to your grade level or different textbook.
For Reading street, this asks students to access the Visual Skills Handbook, table of contents, glossary and word lists. They are also asked to identify vocabulary words and learned skills.
