PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

There are SO MANY ways the materials in this packet may be used. Your whole class may complete certain pages as you introduce and practice new skills. You may also form “Fact Packs” (non-fiction reading clubs) as you read out of content-based textbooks (to meet health, science, and social studies standards), articles, or non-fiction books (I am especially a fan of all of the great chapter book biographies that are being published right now!). You may choose a single text for all kids to read, and then have them discuss the text in small groups. Or students may read different texts and “Fact Pack” groups are determined that way. Students may rotate throughout ALL the jobs in a longer text, all students may compete the same job for a shorter text, or different students may complete different jobs for a shorter text to enrich the quality of discussion.

This product supports the following Common Core State Standards (CCSS):
RI.4.1, 5.1, 6.1 (Inferences)

RI.4.4, 5.4, 6.4 (Word Meanings)
RI.4.5, 5.5, 6.5 (Text Structure)
RI.4.6, 5.6, 6.6 (Point of View)
