This unit was created based 100% off 2nd grade common core literature standards. It is intended to be used with an interactive notebook while doing a read-aloud of The Boxcar children. This unit includes vocabulary words, text-based questions, and a standards-based comprehension portion for every chapter. Students listen and follow along to the chapter, then independently/in groups/whole class answer the questions together. There are also copies of the questions with 22+ each so you can cut out question strips for each student and glue them into their notebooks. Enjoy!
