Many students love to read about inventions! This is a great book for integrating literacy and social studies. In this third-grade Level O reader, students will learn about Cyrus McCormick and his invention of the mechanical reaper which helped to revolutionize agriculture.
The book includes two and a half pages of companion worksheets which reinforce literacy skills involving reading, language, spelling, and writing. Specific concepts, skills, and vocabulary targeted in this reader are listed on the first page of the four-page story.
This book is part of my series of leveled books which is written to incorporate the Fountas and Pinnell leveled vocabulary, Rebecca Sitton spelling words, and common core curriculum standards in the United States.
The book is sold as a single book as well as part of my Level O - Set 2 collection of 6 books:
• Bill Martin, Jr. - America’s Favorite Children’s Author;
• Cyrus McCormick – A New Way to Cut Crops;
• Helen Keller: Spelling W-A-T-E-R;
• Mary Kay of Mary Kay Cosmetics;
• Famous Amos Cookies; and
• Bill Gates, Riches beyond Money.
I have a large number of other single books and collections for grades 1 - 6 which I hope you will find of interest also. Thanks!
