Nat Geo’s “Weather” is a treasure trove of text features! So let’s use it to teach the Common Core State Standards for reading informational text and the concept of close reading, returning again and again to the text for answers to our questions! It’s easy and fun with your copy of National Geographic Kids “Weather” by Kristin Baird Rattini and our text-dependent question card (TDQ). Sample answers are included on our TDQ card for teacher reference. We’ve done all the work so you don’t have to! Just relax and enjoy! Afterward, offer your students our no-prep worksheet so they can draw and write about what they’ve learned from your read-aloud about weather.
All of our “Max Learner Book Detective” products help teach the Common Core reading standards by capturing the attention and imagination of primary students with read-aloud stories teachers love! Kids are excited about “solving the mysteries hidden inside of books”! Our No-Prep text-dependent question cards help teachers guide students to the heart of the text where the main idea lives. Close reading is fun with Max Learner Book Detective!
