Boy, Were We Wrong About Dinosaurs! - Freebie - Text Exemplar

I think one of the hardest Common Core standards to find resources on is the informational text standard requiring students to make connections between a series of historical events, scientific ideas or concepts, or steps in technical procedures. My latest activity for a Common Core text exemplar includes activities for the book Boy, Were We Ever Wrong About Dinosaurs!  


Students read details from the story and categorize them according to what we currently believe about dinosaurs or what we thought in the past. The file also includes an activity on antonyms that pertain to the text. Just click on the pic above to download the activity.

Please leave a comment and let me know what you think about my series of activities for the text exemplars.

  3. You are making my book wish list longer! :-) Thank you for all the text exemplar activities related to the Common Core standards. Our second grades will be fully implementing in math and partially implementing in language arts in the fall. (Although I am not sure how to do it partially!) I am loving your posts not only because they are great resources for the classroom, but also because they are helping me to become more familiar with the standards myself by providing great examples. Thanks!
