Suggested Duration: Days 1-9
Investigating Informational Text
Lesson Organizer
Lesson Synopsis
Students explore reading and writing with a variety of informational text including procedural and expository text. Students ask and
answer questions and use text features to gather information. Students continue using the writing process to write letters and short
compositions on topics of interest. Students decode and spell more complex vowel pairs and vowel digraphs and continue to practice
new sight words.
Performance Indicators
 Choose a topic of interest. Follow written directions to fold a sheet of paper into six sections to use as a graphic organizer.
Generate six questions about your topic using at least 4 of the following question words: Who, What, When, Where, Why, and
How. Write one question in each section. Read an expository text on your topic. Use text features and evidence from the text to
write answers to your questions. ( 2.Fig19B, 2.Fig19C; 2.3B, 2.3C; 2.14B, 2.14D; 2.15A, 2.15B; 2.21C; 2.25B, 2.25C; 2.28B)
1D, 1E, 1F; 4C, 4D, 4E, 4F, 4G, 4I, 4J; 5B, 5F, 5G
 Write multiple brief notebook entries to record thoughts, connections, and/or strategies that deepen understanding of text and

media. Provide textual evidence to support ideas. ( 2.Fig19D, 2.Fig19F; 2.3A, 2.3B, 2.3C; 2.13A; 2.14C; 2.16A; 2.19C)
4E, 4F, 4G, 4J; 5C, 5G
 Record multiple entries in a Word Study Notebook to demonstrate knowledge of spelling patterns and use of strategies to
determine word meanings. Use the notebook entries to support writing. (2.5A, 2.5B, 2.5C; 2.5D; 2.23Biv, 2.23C, 2.23E, 2.23F)
1A, 1C, 1E, 1F, 1H; 5B, 5F, 5G

1. Display the cover of the
selected book. Ask: What do
you think this book will be
about? Discuss responses.
1. Review that authors write text
for different purposes including
to tell about a topic, explain
something, or to describe how
to do something.
1. Display note cards and
prepared chart paper. Explain
to students that friendly letters
have a specific format.
2. Write the words “light” and
“pie” on the board. Ask:
Which letters make the long
i sound in these words? Call
on a student to underline the
letters. Explain that the long i
sound can be spelled several
different ways.
2. Explain that during this unit
students will be reading
informational text that tells

3. Read aloud the first section of
the text. Ask: What is the
topic, or subject, of this
book? Discuss responses.
Ask: Why did the author
write this book? Discuss
responses.
4. Review that when a reader
uses what they know along
with the clues from the text it is
called making an inference.
Ask: Can we make any
inferences based on what
we’ve read so far? Discuss
responses and ask students to
support their answer using text
evidence.

identify the topic, explain the
author’s purpose, and make
inferences related to informational
text.
Content Objective: Students use

Content Objective: Students write
short letters with ideas in logical
sequence and appropriate

1. Introduce new words to the
Word Wall using Teacher
Resource: Word Wall
Routines.
1. Review the meaning of topic,
author’s purpose, and
inference.
1. Review that an inference is a
connection between something
in the text and something that
is already known by the
reader.
1. Display the prepared friendly
letter template and quickly
review the parts of a friendly
letter using the hand signals:
 Heading/date (touch your
head)
 Salutation/greeting (touch
your mouth)
 Body (touch your heart –
the heart of the letter)
 Closing (touch your knee)
 Signature (touch your toes)
2. Review that the long i sound
can be spelled several
different ways including –igh
and -ie (pie).
3. Write the word “light” on the
board. Underline “igh”.
Explain that when you read
the word “light”, you only say
three sounds: /l/ /igh/ t/.
Instruct students to repeat
then blend the word. Repeat
with the word “lie” and
underline “ie”.
4. Use the dry erase boards to
continue reading and writing
words with –igh and -ie (pie)
from the prepared list.
2. Display the selected text. Ask:
What do you think this book
will be about? Discuss
responses.
3. Read the first section of the
text aloud. Ask: What is the
topic, or subject, of this
book? Discuss responses.
Ask: Why did the author
write this book? Discuss
responses. Ask: What is our
purpose for reading this
book? Discuss responses.
4. Review that readers make
inferences when they use what
they know and information
from the text to understand the
author’s message. Ask: Can
you make any inferences
based on what we’ve read so
far? Discuss responses and
ask students to support
answers with textual evidence.
2. Instruct students to make
inferences while reading.
2. Review that adjectives
describe nouns and pronouns.
Review that adverbs show
when an action is done
(yesterday) or describe how
the action is done (carefully,
beautifully). Share that both
types of words make writing
interesting for the reader to
read.

conventions of the letter (e.g.,
use of abbreviation Mr. or
Mrs., capitalization of proper
nouns, months, the salutation

5. Review that pronouns are
words used in place of nouns.
Point out any pronouns in the
letter and explain that writers
use pronouns to make their
writing flow. Share that it
would sound strange to repeat
the same noun word over and
over again. Provide examples
as appropriate.

divide the paper in half and
write “-igh” on the left side
and “sight words” on the

2. When finished, instruct
students to divide a piece of
blank paper into three sections
and copy the following
response stems:
 The topic of this book is
__.
 The author wrote this book
to ___.
 One inference I can make

1. Students read self-selected
text and make inferences while
reading.
1. In the Writer’s Notebook, each
student drafts a friendly letter
using a logical sequence to
describe what they did over

game. To play:
 Divide students into two
teams.
 Call one player from each
team to the board.

the word is spelled
correctly. The player who
wrote the word the fastest
gets to shoot a basket for
an extra point.
 For round 2, call out the
expanded form. Students
write the contraction. Each
team gets a point if the
word is spelled correctly.
The player who wrote the
word the fastest gets to
shoot a basket for an extra
