PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Are you looking to expand your collection of short informational text perfect for {fun & interesting} close reading? Text that you and your students can read and reread in one session? If so, then I think you will love this third volume of articles in a new Hello Literacy Informational Text series I'm creating called Hello 411.

I wrote and designed these informational text articles for my students because I was looking for text that was short, interesting, looked like a real magazine article with real photographs and were good examples of the five different nonfiction text structures (RIT.5). These articles are ideal for close reading in grades 3-8.

There are five articles written (by me) at four different lexile levels ranging from 800L - 1150L (3rd-9th grades). In this edition, all five articles are related to American history around the time of the American Revolution. They are interesting topics to kids, not time or month sensitive, and crossing boundaries of culture, ethnicity, income, and socioeconomic status. Passage titles are:

The Life of Paul Revere (chronological order)
Riot in Boston Harbor (cause/effect)
Don't Tread on Me (description)
Patriots & Loyalists (compare/contrast)
Army Life at Valley Forge (problem/solution)

What's included:
*1 Lexile Level Correlation Sheet
*1 Close Reading Summary Page
*1 Text Comparison Chart with Links to YouTube Videos
*1 Text Comparison Chart with QR Codes to YouTube Videos
