Use the CCSS for Reading Informational text to teach children about George Washington! It’s easy and fun with your copy of “Character Counts: Young George Washington (The Pillar of Trustworthiness)” by Andrew Woods and our text-dependent question card (TDQ) and no-prep worksheet. Our TDQ card helps you model close reading, and the answers to the questions are included on your TDQ card to make it easy for you to lead the discussion. We’ve done all the work so you don’t have to!
Our student worksheet reinforces close reading by providing page numbers as a reference. Reviewing the book will help your students remember the important details about George Washington’s life (and provide supporting evidence for writing an opinion piece later). Also, the included answer key page could be used for handwriting practice or as an aid to students who may not yet be independent workers.
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!
