This informational text close reading unit ties close reading and annotation with note taking and informational writing. The unit includes two versions (one scaffolded) of an article on The White House. It has students annotate, write thinking, examine text features, and plan and write an informational piece on The White House. The unit includes:
Two articles on The White House (two different levels)
Annotation symbols page
Background building photos (2 pages)
Writing your thinking page
Two column note taking page
Text features page
Planning informational writing
This bundle includes TWO versions of the unit: one for advanced or at grade level students and one unit that scaffolds instruction to help make differentiation easier for those who need scaffolds.
This unit would be appropriate for first or second grade (or some high kindergarten students).
I appreciate you looking and I love feedback (you can earn TPT credits too).
