Product Description
Confronted with terrible obstacles, George Washington Carver overcame them all to become a famous scientist and a much-loved teacher. “A Weed is a Flower,” by Aliki, is an inspirational biography for young learners and a great read aloud for teaching children to have a growth mindset. This story is also a “Wonders” reading program exemplar text for 1st grade because it richly satisfies the CCSS for Reading Informational Text 1, 2, 3, and 4 and lends itself very well to Writing Standard 2, informational paragraph writing. Use our Text-Dependent Questions to generate a robust class discussion about Carver’s life and follow up with our Close-Reading worksheet to record the main ideas. Then use the worksheet as a scaffold for our Informational Paragraph Builder which guides students’ writing from topic sentence to conclusion. Finally use our thematic final copy paper for pride of publication! Get the “Max” out of close reading with Max Learner Book Detective!
