If you're looking for how to teach expository text a la Common Core and to augment your plans for February or just bring animals/science into the reading curriculum, here's just what you need!
What to Do:
(1) Use The Woodchuck Story (complex) to teach informational text. (2) Use The Woodchuck Story (easy) as a decodable reader for struggling students or as a model text. (3) Use fact sheets, task cards, word sorts, fact sorts, and writing activities to encourage students to manipulate this text for different purposes. (4) Use the model writing paragraph to teach students how to respond to a writing prompt. (5) Use templates to paste your own activities.
