K-1 students receive focused instruction on nouns, verbs, question words, prepositions, singular and plural nouns, proper nouns, adjectives, pronouns, sentence structure, sentence order, present tense verbs, and the verb to be.
Example: Use verbs to convey a sense of past, present, and future. CCSS | Literacy.L.1.1e
Informational Text Features
A new collection of activities helps students analyze informational texts.
Example: Use text features and search tools (e.g. key words, sidebars, hyperlinks) to effectively locate information relevant to a given topic. CCSS | Literacy.Rl.3.5
Informational Compare and Contrast
Students in 2nd–6th grades learn strategies and practice comparing/contrasting various types of informational text.
Example: Compare and contrast the most important points and key details presented in two texts on the same topic. CCSS | Literacy.RI.3.9
New Informational Books
A new collection of stories in a 6th-grade Lexile range provide an opportunity for older students to interact with text at an appropriate complexity level.
Each book is paired with a similar text in order to build background knowledge. Questions and interactive glossaries provide scaffolding to support comprehension.
Example: By the end of the year, read and comprehend literary nonfiction proficiently, with scaffolding as needed at the end of the range. CCSS | Literacy.RI.6.10
