These are groups of titles that I have compiled based on books that have worked for me in teaching different K-2 comprehension skills, strategies and Common Core informational reading standards. The lists include mentor texts ideal for teaching the following:
These mentor text lists are a freebie but also included in my latest literacy product that teaches students all the Common Core Reading Informational Text (RIT) standards called Common Core RIT: Comprehension Strategy Sheets for K-2 Reading Informational Standards.
If you are looking for complete and comprehensive master documents for teaching every nonfiction aspect of your curriculum, this is the packet for you. Every informational text standard, K-2, is covered!
Even if your state (Texas or Virginia) or country does not follow the Common Core State Standards, these lists will be useful to anyone that is responsible for teaching students all aspects of nonfiction and informational text.
