Bundle Description
Bundled readers explain to students what STEM is with a specific focus on each letter.
Children often hear terms that don't have meaning for them. Giving them a better understanding of what STEM is and why it is important to understand all fields that work together provides a crucial understanding and gives students a purpose for their study.

Optional extension activities were created for vocabulary focus and asking and answering questions about nonfiction text. These pages can be eliminated and the early fluent reader can be used alone.

Information Text Standards Addressed If Chosen:
RI. 1 Asking and answering questions
RI. 4 Vocabulary
RI. 6 Author's Purpose
RI. 7 Illustrations

Parts of the book have the language of an informational text {factual and how-to} and other parts are opinionated and appeal to the emotions {persuasive}. If you're currently working on an informational or persuasive reading/writing unit of study, this little text is a nice connection. Idea: Students can research additional information and add "Wow Facts" or "Did You Know" bubbles to certain pages in the book.

Directions:
Cut the pages in half, assemble, and staple. Allow some time for coloring and illustrating. Use during shared reading or small group reading instruction. Teach the key vocabulary and let the children write definitions in their own words and/or draw pictures to show the meaning of the words. Also, allow students to ask and answer questions about the text. Reread individually or in pairs.
