    *This bundle has doubled!!

    If your little readers enjoyed one set of animal research passages, just think how much they'll learn with all ten!

    You can use these simple, nonfiction reading passages with non-readers and fluent readers. You can use them during whole group or guided reading groups. Here are some ideas...

    *Provide fluent readers with their own copies of the passage. Students highlight passages and then record the information on the corresponding category charts. (Charts found in the corresponding Smart Charts units linked below).

    *Read aloud the passage to nonreaders. Create a class chart based on the facts. Or read the passage and have students trace the facts on the cut-and-paste fact sheets. (Fact sheets found in the corresponding Smart Charts units units linked below.)

    *Ask beginning readers to highlight key words or sight words.

    *Identify verbs and nouns and make lists. (For example, for polar bears, run, hunt, swim could go on the verbs list. The nouns list could include fur, paws and claws.)

    *Project the passages or have them printed onto poster-sized paper for use with shared reading.

    *Put all of the passages in a center to create an independent research area.
