PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Perfect for fall, Apple Trees and Bees has it all! The focus of this unit is on original informational text or nonfiction reading, reading comprehension, science, language arts, and building basic skills. It is designed to simplify students’ understanding of apple trees and how they grow and the importance of bees in this process. It is perfect for springtime when apple trees blossom and ideal for the fall when apples are ripe and ready to pick!

The packet includes thirteen original informational text pages. Each informational text page is followed by an average of four student response pages. The thirteen informational text pages are accented with colorful clipart and photos to support reading comprehension and enhance learning. The response pages are in black and white to conserve printer costs. The response pages were developed to accommodate differing skill levels among students so that all students can participate in this unit. TIP: Print an extra copy of the thirteen informational text pages, laminate, secure with a binder ring, and place in your classroom library for reading access all year long!

This unit is easily used in large and small groups and in 1:1 settings. For small group instruction, only one copy of the informational text pages needs to be printed. (Print and laminate to use year after year). Print as many of the black and white response pages as needed for your classroom use.
