This packet contains 5 activities that could be used with a 2nd-4th grade class. Please adapt them as necessary depending upon the level of your specific students. All activities can either be done as a mini-lesson in small group or whole class, or can be adapted as center activities if the reading strategy has already been practiced many times. These activities are also higher level thinking, and may require more assistance until the students are confident enough to complete on their own. They include compare/contrast, inferencing, predicting, word meaning in context, and fact/opinion. Enjoy!
