Reading Minilesson

Part 1

The last article in your magazine is Along Came a Polar Bear. Here is a video to help you get started.

Along Came a Polar Bear

Part 2

After you read the article, do the Comprehension Challenge below!

Comprehension Challenge: Read the article to someone and answer the questions below after you read.

Question 1: What is this article about?

Question 2: What were some of the special text features the author used to teach you a lot in this article?

Question 3: On page 21, the author asks a question. What is the question? Why do you think the author asked this question?

Note to parents and caregivers: A student who can read this article by him/herself and then answer the questions above (when asked by an adult) would be working roughly on grade level. I’d be happy to talk or email more about this if you have any questions for me or aren’t exactly sure what a correct answer would sound like.

Optional: If you want to watch the other videos again, they are linked below.

Part 1: Play an online place value game

Go to

Choose a unit of 10. Play "Read and make" or "Listen and Make," then play "Count and Write." (If you like playing with units of 10, you can try units of 100 for a challenge! Try units of 10 first, though.)


Part 2: Complete a math page.

In your new math packet, complete one or more pages. You can do the pages in any order.

If you can’t find your packet, you can print a new one if you click this link.
