Happy fall! Let’s use the Common Core State Standards to teach children about why leaves change color! It’s easy and fun with your copy of “Why Leaves Change Color,” by Betsy Maestro, and our text-dependent question card (TDQ). Our questions, based on the Common Core reading standards for informational text, help you model close reading by taking your students back into the text time and time again to find the answers to the Max Learner questions. (Answers are included on the card for teacher reference.) Max Learner Book Detective has done all the work, so you don’t have to! Just relax and enjoy your read-aloud story! Then, extend your lesson with our worksheet which reinforces close reading by guiding young learners to the specific pages in the text where the answers to the questions can be found.
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 everyone loves! 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!
