PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This unit uses the Magic Tree House Fact Tracker book 'Horse Heroes' to have students gain a better understanding of how to read and understand informational texts.

Students will use the titles, subtitles, images, and captions to help them with their comprehension of nonfiction. They will also use a strategy to determine the main idea of a paragraph and one to monitor and adjust their comprehension while they are reading. This unit uses the website LearnZillion.

Teachers are encouraged to purchase several copies of the book to use during the lesson and for partner reading.

The fiction story 'Stallion by Starlight' can be read as a read aloud. Students have success with listening comprehension because the author pairs the two books connecting facts and ideas. This book can be purchased or checked out from the library.
