Three Types of Text: Year Long BUNDLE

Second and third grade teachers this Sharks reading has 3 types of text! One product with Informational Text, a Fictional Story, and a Non-Fiction Poem. The story and the poem are original works that I've written especially for this product. I've provided two ways to interact with the informational text: Magazine Style with two columns per page and Full page which can be used for close reading and annotating.

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

The texts are written in question format! Common questions that children would have about sharks are:
• Why do sharks have sharp teeth?
• What do sharks eat?
• Where do sharks live?
• How do sharks have babies?
• What makes Great Whites so great?
• Why do Great Whites attack people?
• Can Great Whites jump?

Please note: it does not have information about sharks' anatomy.

The following skills are practice with the printables:
Comprehension/Purpose of the Text
Main Idea and Details
Author's Craft
Author’s Message
Character Point of View
Understanding the Character
Compare and Contrast
Story Structure
Rhyming Words
Facts and Details
Alternate Endings

There are Teacher Mini-Lessons on:
•Activating Prior Knowledge
•Vocabulary Suggestions
•Author's Message
•Connecting with Characters

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!

I've also included a blank mini-book that students can create to share their learning about sharks.
