Read the blog post below for a DETAILED explanation of this pack!
This activity was created for students to practice reading for the purpose of gaining specific information, compiling that information, analyzing that information, inferring, and writing to inform.
Students read an ad about a homeless dog at the Summit Dog Rescue. While reading, they must identify the specific needs of that dog that must be provided in their forever home. They will also read about up to three families that are possible adopters and see if the dogs needs are met with any adopter. Students will track their findings on the organizer page.
There is only one perfect adopter for each dog.
Once the student has selected the perfect forever family, they can use one of the leveled letters to write to the family informing them of why they were chosen.
An extension activity is included, where students must create their own dog and possible adopters.
** I plan on completing one as a whole group activity and then using the others as independent centers. **
Seven dogs are included with three families each.
