Before you continue, if you are not using the Journeys 2nd Grade textbooks, you will not be able to use this lesson verbatim. It was written to go with "Schools Around the World" in the Journeys student textbook.
I used these two mini lessons in a guided reading group with my paraprofessional. She worked with students that had difficulty with text features and finding the meanings of words. This 2-in-1 lesson plan can be used in guided reading, as a mini lesson, or to supplement what you're already doing!
