Ladybugs: This is part of my Nonfiction Bundle #1
This mini-unit is FILLED with resources about ladybugs – AND there are different options for each activity to suit the needs of your students. My mini-units are an alternative to the larger units that require more in-depth teaching. They are perfect for small group reading, as a week-long whole class unit or for independent research.
This unit includes 4 informational texts about ladybugs. Most of the activities (organizers, questions, etc.) are centered around these four texts. There are also writing organizers that can be used with any ladybug text, as well as a craft to display your student’s writing. I am also excited to add a partner play about ladybugs, filled with facts about these tiny insects.
- 4 nonfiction texts: ladybug appearance, the life cycle of a ladybug, how ladybugs help and ladybugs in space (yep – that’s right!); Each text has 3 different versions – (1) full color, perfect for projecting whole class; (2) with smaller photos, great for small group or independent work; (3) ink-saver edition with only clipart
- Text dependent questions: Each text has 6 questions – both written response sheets and oral discussion cards included
- 4 reading organizers, one for each text
- a set of question cards with answer sheet - great for small group work or to hang around the room as a fact scavenger hunt
- Anticipation Guide
- 6 open-ended writing organizers and planning sheets, both lined and unlined
- Ladybug themed writing paper (handwriting line, regular lines and unlined)
- Partner Play – great for fluency practice (includes many facts about ladybugs found in the original texts)
- Directions for an adorable and easy-to-make writing craft
