This workbook encourages reading skills related to informational texts. Questions address skills in Common Core for 1st and 2nd grade, both non-fiction texts and literature.
This is a fun workbook for your unit on spiders, or as a follow up after you've done insects. It was written to accompany "Spiders" by Carolyn Otto (Scolastic Inc.); however, all but 2 questions can be used with any spider book.
Non-fiction questions include: getting information from pictures, using a glossary, identifying main idea and details. Other reading skill questions include rhyming words, adding capital letters and periods, distinguishing between "words" and "sentences," and counting syllables.
There's also a cut-and-paste/sorting activity of spider/non-spider and a draw your own spider.
