This short nonfiction text will teach students about the ocean, and includes questions to help students identify the author’s point of view and purpose for writing the text by focusing on important vocabulary words that support the main idea.
Stories are a fantastic way to teach kids important life lessons. This reading comprehension worksheet uses the classic Aesop’s fable—The Fox and the Crow—to get your students thinking about the central lesson of a story.
Learning how to read fluently includes more than just piecing letters together to form words. Kids also have to read from left to right and notice spacing between words. Help your child become a fluent reader by tackling these skills.
Now that reading skills are more developed, second graders will move on to comprehension of informational text. This guided lesson supports this through an exploration of the main idea of a text, as well as the other text features, such as: captions, photographs, maps headings, subheadings, glossary, index, icons and graphs. Kids will look at two texts that cover the same topic, but in different ways.
The goal of these second grade reading comprehension resources is to help students be able to become more confident readers. For example, story map worksheets help students to visualize the arc of a story. You can bring stories to life, while teaching second grade reading comprehension at the same time.
