This is what is included in the Reindeer Informational Article Pack
Practice Finding Main Idea while Integrating Text Features!
This pack was created for 2nd- 3rd graders struggling with finding the main idea in nonfiction text. It contains two informational articles about reindeer. The articles are very similar, only the readability is different. The higher leveled passage is about a 900 Lexile level. The lower level passage is about 780 Lexile level. Because it is nonfiction, and there are some content related vocabulary words, the level was driven up. This pack is perfect for guided reading or as independent work.

After students read the article and answer the questions (and/or fill out the graphic organizer), students can cut the article apart and glue the text features into a text features hunt book. A smaller, one page version of each of the articles is included, in black and white, for students to cut apart. I do recommend that the original article be printed in color, if possible, so students can see the pictures.

Students can also answer questions about the article. Students will have to use the text features to answer the questions. This would be perfect as a center or small group activity. Two different sets of questions are included. One set of questions is more difficult. The cover sheet for the activity is included in color and black and white to best meet the teacher’s needs.

Included in this pack:
• A circle map to activate prior knowledge
• 3 vocabulary cards, with photographs
• 2 leveled Informational articles in color or black and white
• Main idea questions and answer key
• Main idea graphic organizer and answer key (individual heading)
• Main idea graphic organizer and answer key (entire article)
• Article for scavenger hunt
• Text Feature Book with cut and paste definitions for all features in this article
• Two sets of questions, a higher and lower level, about the text features with recording sheet and answer key.

The text features included in this article:
• Photograph
• Heading
• Graph
• Bold, underlined print (types of print)
• Caption
• Side Bar
• Glossary

This is what is included in the Artic Animals Research Pack:
This pack was created for 2nd- 3rd grade writers to support informational writing. Often it can be hard to gather effective resources when writing about a theme. So I tried my best to gather them all in one spot for you!
This pack is perfect for the winter months. Students can either select or be assigned an artic animal to research. This pack specifically has materials for the following artic animals:
• Reindeer (model)
• Arctic Fox
• Polar Bear
• Puffin
• Snowy White Owl
• Walrus
However, I also included, “generic” forms so students can research any animal of his or her choosing.
For each animal, I have included the following forms:
• Animal Fact Card
• Suggested Websites for Research
• Whole Page Graphic Organizers
• Small Graphic Organizers Research Book
• Informational Book for Publishing
Text Features included in the Informational Book for Publishing include:
• Table of contents
• Glossary
• Index
• Map
• Chart
• Captions
• Places for photos or pictures.
• Teachers can easily require types of print as well, which would be used for the glossary
Another option for publishing the final draft would be to create an Informational Article. A template has been included as well. These are in the same format as my informational articles that can be found on Teachers Pay Teachers.
Also included is an Animal Trading Card. These are perfect for students to complete as exit slips while researching. Copy both pages of the trading cards, front to back. Then, have students complete the information- recopy as needed to have the same information on each of the four cards. Finally, the students can cut the cards out and trade among each other to show all they have learned about their arctic animal!
Happy Learning!
