This tried and tested factual text which is differentiated into 3 clear levels contains information about cycling for young readers. Each text is 3 pages long. Despite being hugely differentiated, children will still all read the same content and be able to have whole class discussions about the information given in the text.
Centering around the phonic sounds of magic e (a_e, e_e, i_e, o_e, u_e) and with a grammar focus on apostrophes (wasn't, I'm, don't, etc) and speech marks, there is plenty to cover a week's worth of study in English Literacy lessons.
After reading the text, students are asked comprehension questions (also differentiated) and to write personal opinions on the topic. Rubrics are provided for self-evaluation and checking their own work.
Perfect for incorportation into a unit of study about health or sport. Mentions olympic games.
Final page is a note for teachers.
