This is a great small mini-unit about the zoo and some of the animals in it. The text is very easy reading and can be used to teach students how to do close reading. It teaches them how to find the information in a text and then how to use that information to make a graphic organizer and continue into the writing process for informational text.It focuses on five sight words and comprehension activities.There are phonics activities to also support your beginning readers needs.
Its fun, informative, and a great way to address beginning reader/writer needs.
All aligned with Common Core.
