PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

What's a SMARTICLE? For me, it's a SMall, SMart article and they're perfect for developing many close reading behaviors in early readers.

This SMARTICLE, Swamp Chomp!, is focused on the topic of alligators. It's a great supplemental piece for several studies, including:

• Swamp or Lake Habitats
• Reptiles
• Predators
• Nonfiction Reading Strategies

The 3-page article includes text most appropriate for children in grade 2, but it will also work for 1st graders at the end of the year and 3rd graders who need a bit more support.

You can project the article electronically and guide the children through the text or print it and teach children how to annotate each page with their notes and ideas. Try using the article:

• In Small Groups
• As a Partner Activity
• In a Literacy Center
• As a Homework Option

Text features help aid comprehension and the written response sheets at the end allow children to demonstrate understanding by:

• Asking and Answering Their Own Questions
• Providing and Explaining Opinions
• Taking a Short Quiz Using Text-Based Evidence

Hover over the thumbnails for a closer look at some sample pages and click on the PREVIEW to see a few more close up.

Thank you for your interest in this SMARTICLE.

Happy teaching! :)
