Product Description
This HUGE informational text unit is based on penguins! It was designed for kindergarten and first grade students and closely aligns to the Common Core State Standards for Informational Text. This resource is perfect for close reading, shared reading and/or guided reading.

This unit presents 14 informational text articles based on penquins. Each article begins with an essential question. High quality photographs engage students and enhance their learning. The essential question is answered within each article. These articles provide detailed information in a very basic format.

After each article you will find a page of 3 explicit text dependent questions. There is also 1 page that includes 2 writing prompts that ask students to summarize and synthesize their learning.

These reading and writing tasks are designed to give young students complex information in a simple, student friendly format. These tasks may be achieved through shared reading and writing, small group activities, or individual student work. (Detailed instructions are provided). This is an excellent way to expose developing readers and writers to rigorous tasks.

Also included in this product:
-vocabulary cards
-graphic organizers
-essential question posters
