The Stubborn Reindeer Partner Play
This four page partner script for December is about a reindeer that just won't do what it's told. It is a great comparison with the book, Wild Christmas Reindeer by Jan Brett. It comes with a pre-reading interest builder, questioning task cards (12 cards) that hit the higher level of Blooms and require students to cite text evidence and explain their thinking, a comprehension page for during or after reading that requires students to record text information, and a post reading writing prompt. This would work well to use in pairs during Read with Partner or Guided Reading time. The target grade level is second to third grade level.
