Every product in this bundle includes:

3 Types of Text

Each month your students will read about the animals through 3 Types of Text: informational text, a fictional story, and a poem. The story and the poem are original works that I've written especially for this product. I've also provided two ways to interact with the informational text: Magazine Style with two columns per page and Full page which can be used for close reading and annotating.


Mini-lessons will vary by month. Some examples of mini-lessons included are:

•Accessing Prior Knowledge


•Previewing the Text

•Text Structure

•Poetry Elements


•Student Discussion Activities


Each literature type has 4-7 printables that are Common Core aligned and cover many of the ELA standards within the 3 major clusters: Key Ideas and Details, Craft and Structure, and Integration of Knowledge and Ideas.

The following topics are covered in the printables:

•Comprehension/Purpose of the Text

•Comprehension-Sketch It

•Main Idea and Details

•Text Features

•Meaning of Words

•Compare and Contrast

•Author’s Message


•Story Structure
