This unit bundles student outcomes that provide experiences with informational text. Students continue to make connections between listening, speaking, reading, and writing as they begin to think about the world around them through a variety of informational resources including, but not limited to recipes, environmental print, and labels. Vocabulary continues to develop through exposure to these informational resources.
Students explore patterns in phonological awareness, phonics and print awareness through blending onset and rime and blending phonemes. Writing becomes more important as students continue to make connections to letter/sound associations and reading. Students compose a variety of nonfiction texts, to include lists, recipes, books about a favorite topic, and writing words found in the classroom.
