Your kiddos are going to LOVE Fancy Nancy’s fabulous style and creativity.
There are great comprehension-building pages like making inferences, drawing conclusions, and comparison & contrast. I also included some thought-provoking reader’s response pages. Language Arts-Common Core is definitely covered for both 1st and 2nd grade levels with practice for story structure, point of view, using illustrations, expanding sentences, and shades of meaning. And More!
As an added element of fun, you could also check out www.french-games.net to teach your class how to speak French! There are some good tutorials and games. Use this in your free time or add them to your computer centers.
You may want a copy of the text for each pair of students. However, the activities can also be easily done with a single teacher’s copy.
