This unit was designed with the Common Core and the needs of a primary classroom in mind. The Common Core's focus is on non-fiction and vocabulary development but it can be so hard to find non-fiction texts that are appropriate for primary and/or struggling readers. These reading passages were designed to be used as a supplement to read alouds of other non-fiction books pertaining to the theme. They are simple enough for a primary student (struggling reader) to read and gather information from independently.
