My kids can NOT get ENOUGH of animals and well...horses are my childhood favorite animal. I had 4 growing up and they are very near and dear to my heart. My classroom has various animal books that are out throughout the course of the year and those are always the books the kids are BEGGING to get their hands on. I love when my students are reading something non-fiction and they come running up to me saying, "Did you know...?!"
I always feel like I am scrambling to expand on the animal when I read the Magic Tree House series to add a non-fiction element to the unit. I stopped and realized...this is what I should have been doing ALL along! This is not at all tied into the MTH series but could very easily be an additional resource used in any MTH book that includes horses. (Obviously, this is could be used as a stand alone unit or any other book that has a horse theme.)
What you get in this bundle is a fantastic way to check your students fluency, introduce new vocabulary, reinforce text features, comprehension, and progress monitor.
Included in this resource:
* 3 differentiated non-fiction articles
* vocabulary pocket cards (with and without definitions)
* color poster with equine anatomy
* non-fiction flip book (6 pages)
* parts of speech review (nouns, verbs, adjectives)
* common vs. proper noun
* present vs. past tense
* read and correct
* long/short vowel center sorting activity (response worksheet included)
* noun/verb/adjective center sorting activity (response worksheet included)
This set is perfect for small reading groups, enrichment groups, RTII practice, homework, or even your own unique classroom needs!
