Create well rounded readers using 3 types of texts to read about Bats through informational text, a story narrative and a poem! Each text includes mini-lessons and comprehension pages
I've provided two ways to interact with the informational text:
The story narrative is called “Todd Turkey.” Todd lives on the farm and is scared of everything. One day, his friend, Jerry, is in danger of a coyote attack, and Todd finds the courage he needs to save his friend. Both Todd and Jerry learn valuable lessons.
“The Clever Turkey” is a rhyming poem about a clever turkey that outwits a farmer, and doesn't get eaten for Thanksgiving dinner.
The story and poem are both originals that I've written. I enjoyed writing these 2 fun and interesting pieces that I know 2nd and 3rd grade students will enjoy! Fun, relevant and educational…what more could you ask for!
You can use these in small student-led cooperative groups, whole class, small instructional groups, at a literacy center and so much more!
