Polar Bears: Reading and Writing Bundle

The informational text is provided in two formats! You can scaffold their learning by printing off the one that fits your students' needs best!

✷"Full Page Style" has the information from each subtopic on separate pages. This option is great if you want to train your student how to close read and annotate informational text. There is space between the lines and on the side margins.

✷"Magazine Style" has two columns per page. This option is great if you want your students to get used to reading a typical newspaper or magazine style article. Students would annotate with post-its or a journal.

Each literature type has 4-7 printables that are Common Core aligned and cover many ELA standards within the 3 major clusters: Key Ideas and Details, Craft and Structure, and Integration of Knowledge and Ideas.

The following topics are covered in the printables:

✓Comprehension/Purpose of the Text

✓Comprehension-Sketch It

✓Main Idea and Details

✓Text Features

✓Meaning of Words

✓Compare and Contrast

✓Author’s Message

✓Character Point of View


✓Story Structure

✓Character Analyzing

✓Analyzing Events


✓Facts and Details

✓Analyzing Poetry

✓Write to Sources

There are Teacher Mini-Lessons on:

✎Previewing the Text


✎Point of view

✎Student Discussion Activities

The story and poem are both originals that I've written. I enjoyed writing these two fun and interesting pieces that I know 2nd and 3rd grade students will enjoy! Fun, relevant and educational…what more could you ask for!

You can use these in small student-led cooperative groups, whole class, small instructional groups, at a literacy center and so much more!
