Product Description

This pack includes 5 centers/small group activities for 2nd graders (Also ideal for 1st or 3rd) plus graphic organizers, writing prompts, response to literature questions, vocabulary cards, skill posters, and more! Just read "Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse" by Kevin Henkes, then get ready to have fun with this FULL UNIT!

**Many of the pages have both color AND printer friendly black/white included** I have worked hard to make this AS PRINTER FRIENDLY as possible!**

This packet includes a TON of exciting things! Please see below! 

I have created this pack to go along with Kevin Henkes’ book Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse. After reading the book with your class, these centers could be completed using vocabulary words from the story. You may choose to introduce the vocabulary words before reading or go over them after reading. They are included on large word cards with definition cards. There are also three other centers included, using skills that can be pulled from the story: Cause & Effect, Adjectives, and Compound Words. This would also be a great packet of activities to use for emergency sub reading plans!

Five Literacy Centers/Small Group Activities:
Vocabulary Match Center
Vocabulary Mixed up Sentences Center
Cause & Effect Match Center
Adjective & Noun Sort
Compound Word Match

Also included: 
All centers include accountability/recording sheets
Three Graphic Organizers (Cause & Effect, Problem Solution, Story Map)
Three Skill Posters (Cause & Effect, Problem Solution, Adjectives)
Two Adjective Maps (Describing Lilly and Mr. Slinger)
Response to Literature Question Sheet 
(Two questions to be answered with a written response regarding the story.)
Letter Writing Sheet (Writing a letter to Lilly)
Additional Response to Literature Question Sheet (Simile question)
