| Merchant: Academic Superstore Find Out & Write About is an award winning nonfiction series that teaches comprehension and independent research skills by presenting carefully leveled reading materials with connected writing tasks. Support students through curriculum focused reading and writing activities Each title contains engagingly illustrated information pages with carefully researched, nonfiction text. Students click the speaker button to listen to the whole text, or click on an individual word to hear it. Each page contains a link to a Clicker writing grid that relates directly to that page, so students can write about the information they have just learned. Words are color coded to help writers compose sentences successfully. Motivate all learners with differentiated materials Each engaging title presents information at three levels, making the series suitable for emergent, struggling, and fluent readers. At level 1, information is presented in short sentences and learners use Clicker Grids to work with sentence beginnings and endings. At level 2, students construct their own sentences and have a wider vocabulary choice, while at level 3 they are presented with more in depth information and grids that enable them to interpret and respond to the text. Enhance students' learning outcomes As they work their way through the information pages and writing tasks, students produce a significant piece of writing that demonstrates both their understanding of the reading material and their ability to work independently. This is highly motivating for all learners, particularly struggling readers and writers. Find Out & Write About is also ideal for enhancing the learning opportunities of your students with special needs. As with all Powered by Clicker resources, the series is completely switch accessible. Find Out & Write About Life Cycles teaches students about a range of living things and how they grow. Students read about eight living things: the chicken, turtle, salmon, butterfly, frog, cat, koala, and the sunflower. They are able to view a glossary of key vocabulary, explore life cycle diagrams, and use writing grids to write about the plants, reptiles, birds, amphibians, and mammals. The information is presented at three levels. All levels use clear, recorded speech, and the text is highlighted as it is read.
