The Candy Corn Contest Comprehension Questions and Book Study

Do you do book studies with your students?

The Candy Corn Contest by Patricia Reilly Giff is an enjoyable early chapter book to use for a children’s book club. This book is part of The Kids of the Polk Street School series. Elementary students can easily relate to these 2nd graders and the challenges school life can bring.

In order to extend this story and meet curriculum objectives, I created Candy Corn Contest comprehension questions and supplemental activities to go with this story.

Whether you are using this title for guided reading, small group instruction, or as a whole-group read aloud to your class, you will find plenty of ideas and resources to support your literacy program.

    When I started teaching, I quickly realized that student teaching didn't prepare me for the real challenges of being alone in a classroom full of young children. The learning curve was steep and time was limited. That is why I created the Literacy Garden. My hope is this will be a place for inspiration, mentoring, and connecting.
