teach reading comprehension
This coming year will be different for me as I will be teaching a straight 2nd grade class. One of the things that I love teaching most is reading! I will miss seeing the great development from beginning to the end of the year development with 1st grade readers, but will love teaching even more higher level skills with my 2nd graders!
I made a large purchase on TPT (click on the picture to view it on TPT):
This product I feel will really enhance teaching reading comprehension. I bought it right before school got out this year, and can't wait to use it! There are leveled readings for throughout the year. My plan is to use them for shared reading, and then to have copies of previous ones to use while at "read to someone," as well as to send a copy home on Friday with each child to practice reading with while at home.
I also purchased:
I also want to incorporate more partner/group reading comprehension activities such as the one above. My students LOVED this activity! They were placed into small groups to figure out which home would be best for the dog that they were given by inferring. Do you know of a similar reading comprehension activity? If so, I would love to hear about it!
-Fluency activities from FCRR (FREE)
-read your seat sack books and choose a reading discussion task card
-read to someone comprehension cards that I purchased at Lakeshore where students read to each other, and then ask and answer questions about the passage
While students are at "write about reading," they choose a book that they have read and then a prompt from this product:
I really don't have any related products, but I am celebrating! I have 294 TPT followers, 98 Bloglovin followers, and 575 Facebook likes! Since I am so close to three new milestones, I would like to celebrate by having a giveaway! Since I wrote about some great TPT and Lakeshore finds, I thought that I would give you a chance to win some money so that your can purchase your own! They total up to $30 to spend on your classroom! Good luck! :)
