Product Description

Easy-to-ready, nonfiction passages about zoo animals. See the description for ideas...

Go wild with reading and writing! 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 snakes, hiss, slither and shed could go on the verbs list. The nouns list could include scales and fangs.)

*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.
Go wild with reading and writing!

* These passages were created to complement the charts and writing frames in the unit
