PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

My kids LOVE these non-fiction reading topics! They beg to know what is going to be the next topic! They love reading, writing and researching the topic!

I designed this packet (as well as others to come), to be a series of high interest topics to use for guided reading groups. I have also included a shared reading/read aloud on the same topic, so as to demonstrate to younger children close reading of nonfiction topics. These lessons can be used for a day or a whole week, depending on how many of the activities you chose to use!


Specifically in this unit you will find the following:

-a ‘look and discuss’ picture prompt with a quick write response sheet
-a read aloud that uses real pictures
-3 levels of readers to use in guided reading in color and black and white (easy, medium and hard-with varying levels of length and complexity of vocabulary.) All of the texts cover the same basic material/topic. I have even included one black and white copy with pictures and no words for the children to write their own to go with the picture!
-circle map in color and black and white
-5 “t-charts” (can, have are chart) in color and black and white
-3 foldables to use for collecting information as you go back into the text. Topics: types of bats, bat facts, & bats (Main Idea with 4 key details).
-16 “Wanted Posters” (short information sheets about several shark species)
-Bat research booklets to record information as they go (with foldable version)
- Bat vocabulary booklet to record vocabulary as they go (with foldable version)
-23 bat writing prompts to write about what they have learned
-“K-W-L” bat chart to use all along the way
-comprehension sheet that requires critical thinking as well as going back into the text to find answers
-Vocabulary review sheet
-Bat “crown” with cutouts to attach
-“Spin & Discuss” picture wheels
-“Spin & Write” picture wheels with foldable response sheet
-6 “Let’s compare” Venn diagrams (in color and black & white)
-5 “Standard” Venn diagrams
-17 Writing picture prompts
-8 Writing prompts (children make the picture)

Depending on how many of the coordinating activities you decide to use, this mini-unit can either last one day or close to a week! With this high interest topic, your children will be engaged and having fun while getting much needed exposure to informational non-fiction texts!
