Product Description

Easy-to-read, nonfiction animal passages about farm animals. Please see the description for ideas...

Thank you for "chick-ing" out this reading resource. You can use these simple, nonfiction reading passages with non-readers and fluent readers. You can use them during whole group or guided reading groups. Here are some ideas...

*Provide fluent readers with their own copies of a passage. Students can highlight phrases and then record the information on the corresponding tree charts*.

*Read aloud the passage to nonreaders. Create a class chart based on the facts. Or read the passage and have students trace the facts on the cut-and-paste fact sheets*.

*Ask beginning readers to highlight key words or sight words.

*Identify verbs and nouns and make lists. (For example, for horses, gallop, eat and sleep could go on the verbs list. The nouns list could include hooves, manes, and nostrils.)

*Project the passages or have them printed onto poster-sized paper for use with shared reading.

*Put all of the passages in a center to create an independent research area.
Get “moo-ving”!

* These passages were created to complement the charts and writing frames in the unit 
Thinking about Farm Animals: Smart Charts and Writing Frames.
