The activities in this printable are intended to supplement Houghton Mifflin Reading Gr. 2 Theme 5: Brothers and Sisters by Ellen B. Senisi, Jalapeno Bagels by Natasha Wing, Carousel by Pat Cummings, and Thunder Cake by Patricia Pollacco
Included are 8 leveled activities to use with individual, paired, or small group instruction. These activities also make a great addition to your learning centers or stations resources!
Included for each story is a word sort and an ABC order activity. Students practice the target phonics/spelling pattern by highlighting the pattern in the words (what child doesn't LOVE a highlighter!), dividing the words into syllables, then cutting out the words and gluing to the sorting sheet. Next, students alphabetize the words on a separate recording sheet. Directions, extension activities, and answer keys are included. Please be sure to take a look at the preview.
Around the Kampfire shop is a collection of classroom resources for grades 1-3.
