This activity set is easy to use and requires very little prep. THERE ARE 6 ITEMS FOR EACH STORY in Unit 1. Please look for the other units to go along with 2nd Grade Wonders.
Item 1: VOCABULARY WORDS/DEFINITIONS
The vocabulary words can be used in a number of ways.
*Students can play "Memory" with a partner by matching the vocabulary word with the definition.
*Have the words and meanings cut up and have students individually match the word with the definition.
*Students can quiz a partner on the meaning of the vocabulary word.
*Students can play "Charades" and act out the word with a partner, small group or whole class.
Item 2: GENRE POSTER
Use this poster to introduce the featured genre of the week. It would make a great reference throughout the week as you read the featured story.
Item 3: INTERACTIVE BOOKMARK
Each bookmark states the essential question. Students can keep track of their thoughts and ideas while reading. This would be a great informal assessment while keeping students focused on the theme of the story.
Item 4: GRAPHIC ORGANIZER
Students can use the graphic organizer while they are reading or after reading. It is a great tool to keep them on task, focused and comprehending the story.
Item 5: GAME
After each story, students can play a review game with a partner or in a small group. I have used three different types of games throughout the set. The game will either be a board game, Reading Bump or Reading Dice Game.
Item 6: READING ASSESSMENT
Assess your students' over the featured story using the reading assessment. Each assessment contains a vocabulary section and higher level thinking questions
