This is a simple text that I used with whole group or for a small group to read independently. The graphic Organizer is broken down to pull out important facts from the text into the appropriate boxes.
I've used this with Grade 1Readygen Unit 1 Module B, after working on elephants for the supported writing the post-assessment is on frogs. I use this for my lower students to be able to access information.
This can be adapted for kindergarten and Second grade informational research writing.
