Product Description

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 in small groups (and whole group if I chose to use the read aloud.) These are not designed to be an entire unit, more of a mini-unit to build background knowledge, hit key standards/reading strategies that use informational text. I call them my “touch and go” topics.

Specifically in this mini unit you will find the following:

-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
-a “t-chart” (can, have are chart) in color and black and white
-4 foldables to use for collecting information as you go back into the text. Topics: ladybug life cycle, ladybug facts, colors of ladybugs and one main idea and 3 key details
-Ladybug research booklets to record information as they go
- Ladybug vocabulary booklet to record vocabulary as they go
-Writing about Ladybug to write about what they have learned
-“K-W-L” Ladybug 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

It is common core aligned and covers these standards:

Common Core standards:
SL.K.1 I can participate conversations with my friends.
SL.K.4 I can describe things and events.
SL.K.5 I can add drawings to add details.
SL.K6 I can be understood when I speak in class.
LK.1 I can print my letters.
L.1.2d I can spell words by using common spelling patterns.
W.K1 I can write my opinion about something.
W.K2 I can write about something I know.
RL. 1.1 I can answer questions about key details in a text.
RL. 1.1 I can demonstrate understanding of the central message of the text.
RI. 1.2 I can identify the main idea and retell key details.
RI. 1.7 I can use the illustrations and details in the text to describe its key ideas.
RI. 1.10 I can read informational texts.


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!
