Alternate version of this benchmark for students with significant cognitive disabilities.
LAFS.K.RI.3.AP.7a: Identify a labeled photo, diagram or graphic from within an informational text.
LAFS.K.RI.3.AP.7b: With prompting and support, interpret the information provided in photos, diagrams or graphics and the text in which they appear (e.g., what person, place, thing or idea in the text an illustration depicts).
Vetted resources educators can use to teach the concepts and skills in this benchmark.
In this lesson, students will use the beautiful text, Green by Laura Vaccaro Seeger to explore how an author uses color words and illustrations to describe various real-world objects. Students will brainstorm real-life objects that can be described using color words and write an informative piece to describe those objects.
Students will explore using illustrations to gather key details and summarize the key details into a main idea sentence or sentences. They will compare the details and main idea of the illustration to provided text to determine the relationship between the illustrations and text. They will also learn about the roles of the author and illustrator. Motivated by using magnifying glasses and working with partners, students will use a graphic organizer (web) to document the key details and, in conclusion, the main idea of illustrations.
"Taking Care of Business" is a Kindergarten level lesson plan that allows students to investigate the world of jobs. In this lesson, the students will read Everybody Works by Shelley Rotner and Ken Kreisler. Then, the students will work together in small groups to show what they have learned. Your superstar students will understand more about jobs, job duties, and job settings by the end of this lesson.
This lesson uses When a Storm Comes Up by Allan Fowler and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs by Judi and Ron Barrett to introduce four major weather patterns (rain showers, blizzards, tornadoes and hurricanes). The students will apply what they have learned to identify, describe, and illustrate the weather patterns using white liquid glue and oil pastels. It is recommended that this lesson be broken into two parts, with at least twelve hours in-between each lesson so the white liquid glue has time to dry.
In this science-integrated reading lesson, kindergarten students will learn about physical changes to matter. Students will then create an informational text recording their observation of changing the physical properties of an object of their own choosing.
After completing performance tasks in science on pushing and pulling, students will have an opportunity to apply their new learning to reading informational text about vehicles that can push and pull. This lesson focuses specifically on pushing and pulling of trains by the engine.
In this resource, students will identify and describe what a book is mainly about using the title, text and pictures. The two featured texts that students will use are informational texts about tigers and ladybugs. This is the first lesson in a three-part unit on identifying main topic. The other lessons in the unit are attached as related resources.
In this resource, students will identify pictures that describe what the book is mainly about. Throughout the teacher modeling section, guided practice, and independent practice, students will use books on tigers, farm animals, and whales.
