    Train students to write strong constructed responses with high interest text! Designed for the gradual release model, each passage has four levels of differentiation. Meet the needs of ALL of your students!

    Constructed response requires students to cite the evidence and show the proof in the written response. This framework trains students to write a strong response to any text-based question:
    •Turn around the question, include your response
    •Cite evidence
    •Restate your response

    In this BUNDLE, students are reading informational text about
    Class Pets
    Polar Animals
    Safari Animals
    Creepy Animals
    Ocean Animals
    Exotic Animals
    Countries Around the World
    MORE Countries Around the World

    & are then asked to respond to a question citing evidence. Designed to help kiddos begin to learn that formula, there are 3 levels of support:
    Level 1 Sticky notes on the side are intended to help kiddos begin to learn how to break down a question and then look for the evidence that’s needed to support an answer.
    AND Sentence stems lets kiddos practice using a framework that will allow them to be successful with read & respond activities later, when they don’t have the supports (like on standardized testing!)
    Level 2 Sticky notes like Level 1 support, but no sentence stems.
    Level 3 Does not have sticky notes with leading questions. Students must locate the needed evidence on their own. This level includes prompts for each section (restate the question, add 2 examples of evidence, concluding sentence). A spinner is included with examples of sentence stems for the evidence.
