This packet corresponds with the McGraw Hill Wonders series for second grade. It is based on the common core standards. This can be used as a full packet or you can pull pages to switch it up in your classroom (i.e. small group, independent work, group work, etc.) These sheets are great for close reading and focusing on text evidence!
Included are the spelling words for the week (Unit 4 Week 4), vocabulary words, root words worksheet, comprehension questions for How The Beetle Got Her Colors, How Butterflies Came to Be, Why Turtles Live in Water, and Why Spider Has 8 Thin Legs from the Reading Wonders series (Literature Anthology, Reading/Writing Workshop, and Leveled Readers.)
The How The Beetle Got Her Colors questions include a three day close reading component. Day 1 students will be able to identify the theme. Day 2 students will be able to answer comprehension questions based on the text and Day 3 students will write a response to literature.
