In this packet you will find 10 teacher-made informational, books about different topics, targeting different skills. The books are: “4 Legs”, “Antarctica”, “Bugs Can”, “Desert Animals”, “Frogs”, “Hurry Up!”, “I like to eat”, “On the farm”, “The swamp”, and “Who lives in the forest”. Following each book, there are several worksheets with different questions or activities designed to: review the information from the book, practice making choices, finding the main topic, and express opinions. Some of the activities include vocabulary work, sight words work, drawing and labeling, unscrambling the sentence, and others.
The books follow a repetitive sentence structure allowing for emerging readers to practice reading with one-to-one correspondence, using pictorial cues for comprehension, and develop fluency while also working on sight words recognition.
The Informational texts in this packet can be used as teaching tools, a literacy/reading/writing/science center, reviews, assessments, or in any other way you see fit. The absence of distracting graphics and decorations are a purposeful design choice to prevent pulling focus away from the learning and tasks at hand.
