Where Do Polar Bears Live: This workbook is designed to accompany the Common Core exemplar text for 2nd grade informational texts [Where do Polar Bears Live by Sarah L. Thomson]. The workbook includes a variety of exercises to develop literacy skills for reading informational texts as outlined in the CCSS. The workbook includes foundational skills, including phonics, silent E, consonant blends, and counting syllables.
The workbook was designed with 2nd graders in mind, but can easily be used by high 1st graders at the end of the year, or at the beginning of 3rd.
Activities are fun and some are funny, eliciting giggles as they read the questions. There are some coloring activities asking students to imagine themselves as polar bears—what would they be thinking?
