Character Challenges Mentor Texts – 2nd Grade RL.2.3



Character Challenges Mentor Texts RL.2.3

⭐️Standards-based lessons using mentor texts. This unit is focused around 2nd grade Common Core standard RL.2.2 anddescribe how characters in a story respond to major events and challenges.


⭐️This unit is packed with one week of lesson plans, sticky note teacher and student questions, anchor charts, student journal pages, rubrics, and activities.


⭐️If you do not use Common Core, this resource is still perfect for teaching, developing, or reinforcing character skills. Aligns with many state-specific standards, including TEKS and VA SOL.


The following mentor texts are necessary to teach the lessons:

  • Mary Wears What She Wants by Kevin Negley
  • Malala’s Magic Pencil by Malala Yousafzai
  • Ron’s Big Mission by Corinne J. Naden.


Literature is carefully selected for my units to include diverse cultures and experiences students can learn about and relate to.
