I LOVE Gail Gibbons and her many informational books for elementary school children. She does a wonderful job of creating text that doesn’t “talk down” to the students, and includes the kind of high-interest information that kids crave to keep them engaged in active reading-or, in this case, read-aloud. The book Owls by Gail Gibbons is no exception.
This packet includes 14 pages of material that may be used during guided instruction or, with some scaffolding, done as independent work after reading Owls aloud. Students are encouraged to return to the book multiple times as they work on mastering some of the ELA Common Core State Standards., The packet includes several vocabulary exercises, including a short analogies worksheet and a context clues activity in which they determine whether or not actual sentences from the book create “helpful” or “not helpful” clues to be used in determining definitions. Also included is a main idea/detail cut and glue page and a writing activity in which the students complete sentences that begin with “Owls are”, “Owls have”, and “Owls can.”
If this product includes instructional material that fits the needs of your students, you may want to take a look at similar read aloud comprehension activities on the following topics:
Please leave feedback, as I truly value what my colleagues have to say about my materials in order to improve as I continue to develop instructional material for TpT.
Thank you for taking an interest in my products!
