PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Workbook to accompany Ready Freddy Snow Day Dare

We wrote this workbook for my second and early third grade students, but it can effectively be used for high first graders as well. Many students could easily read this book quickly, but the focus of this workbook is on close examination of the text, which could take up to 3 weeks.

This workbook covers many important skills, and the variety of exercises keeps it from getting repetitive:

Reading and Word Skills:
*Short and long vowels
*Identify silent letters
*Consonant clusters and other common sound partners
*Correct spelling of commonly misspelled words
*Sounds of +ed
*Irregular past verbs
*Suffixes (-let,
*Compound words
*Guess new words from context
*Count syllables
*Find antecedents for pronouns

Comprehend the Text:
*Use the title of a chapter to predict content
*Use illustrations to aid comprehension
*Identify author and illustrator
*Identify and describe main characters and setting
*Find details in the text
*Identify speakers in a string of dialog
*Relate Freddy’s feelings and adventures to your own life
*Understand figurative language
*Understand sarcasm
*Find the lesson we learn from this book

Writing skills (sentence level and paragraph level):
*Choose a variety of words (i.e. don’t always use “said”)
*Point of view: Each chapter has an exercise to write a paragraph.
***From the point of view of Freddy’s mother, Josh, and Max
***A paragraph with 3 reasons
***A paragraph about something you are afraid of (like Freddy & snow) with 2 reasons
***A paragraph explaining the steps you follow to get ready to do something
***A paragraph explaining the steps for making a snowman
***Write the next chapter of the book

In the classroom, I have different reading groups reading different books at the same time. The plan for this workbook is to spend two days on each chapter. The first day, we read the chapter together and look at the questions. Students are then sent off to work on the questions independently at their desks while I work with other reading groups. The second day, we review their questions and talk about the writing assignment. Then they go to their desks to write their paragraphs.
