Grade 1 InfoPairs Box Kit

Paired Nonfiction Articles for Cross-Text Reading in Grade 1
InfoPairs is designed for explicit, small-group guided reading in Grades 1-5. Using short, paired, leveled text cards, students analyze and synthesize information from two related sources to arrive at a deeper level of comprehension. Teachers and students engage first in a focused reading of each text individually, using one of a variety of comprehension strategies. Then they engage in a rich discussion of both text cards, using comprehension strategies that encourage students to make text-to-text connections, compare and contrast, summarize, and synthesize for new or deeper understandings of the subject matter. The Grade 1 kit includes 28 nonfiction text cards (Levels E-M) largely divided between science and social studies topics (14 pairs in 6-packs, for a total of 168 cards per kit); 14 lesson plan booklets, including reproducible masters; the guidebook for instruction; and a sturdy storage box with tab organizers.
