To continue with the Valentine's theme, I found a great article on the way birds attract mates from the February 2013 issue of Ranger Rick. This magazine is one of my absolute favorite resources for nonfiction articles. I actually have a subscription to the magazine.
Once we have read the article, we will complete a main idea and supporting detail graphic organizer. (Valentine-themed of course!) The article Ways Birds Say I Love you has a very clear cut main idea that works well with the graphic organizer.
For another one of my intervention groups, we will be reading Animal Sweethearts from Scholastic News. (I found the article on ebscohost) This article is a little more advanced than the birds article. The text focuses on how different animals attract mates, as opposed to just birds. The article reveals some pretty crazy facts, but also has a very clear main idea. I think the kids are going to be really engaged.
