I designed this packet with guided reading groups in mind. There are 3 levels for each of the 3 non-fiction winter animal texts. Each level presents facts to the reader in a way that is appropriate for their reading level. At the end of each student reader pack are printables that can be used as a check for understanding as well as an opportunity for opinion writing. I also have included an experiential learning idea for each animal to help illustrate concepts from the texts. I hope that you will find this product useful and if so please check out my other products at my tpt store.
