Homework, intervention, tutoring, or shared reading--these expository texts can do it all! This set includes four original texts at third grade reading levels, each with comprehension questions, vocabulary activities, an instructional PowerPoint, a vocabulary assessment, and a quick reading check.
This set of packets highlights different genres. The first reading selection, "A Giant in the Library", is a drama. The second is a set of poems about cows, and the third, "From Practice to Performance", is a personal narrative. The set concludes with a paired passage set of a poem and short expository text.
The packets feature simple, non-distracting formatting. Instructional PowerPoints include bright photographs to help students build visual connections to the new words.
A teaching guide is included with suggested lesson sequences, thumbnails of selected items, and complete answer keys.
