In the last couple of months, I've posted Exemplar Read Aloud Texts for the Common Core , and Exemplar Texts for the Common Core - Stories.
Today I'm getting to my favorite category of Exemplar Texts: The Informational Texts!
The Exemplar Texts are books that are recommended for this level because of the complexity and quality of the texts. Children in these grades should be reading many books of this complexity and quality, these are just examples.
Here are links to some of the Informational Texts recommended for grades 2 and 3.
For more information about the Exemplar Texts for the Common Core see my blog at Elementary Matters.
