Having Fun with Common Core: Integrating Ideas

In May, I presented some book suggestions for CCSS ELA Reading Informational Text #9 grades K-3. At grades 4 and 5, the goals of standard #9 take a different approach by focusing on integrating ideas learned from two or more texts.

Integration of Knowledge & Ideas

Grade 4

Grade 5

Integrate information from two texts on the same topic to write or speak about a swledgeably.

Integrate information from several texts on the same topic to write or speak about the subject knowledgeably.
Here are some suggestions that will work well:

Grade 4

The Truth About Poop by Susan E. Goodman (illus. Elwood H. Smith)

Grade 5
The Tale of Pale Male by Jeanette Winter

City Hawk: The Story of Pale Male by Meghan McCarthy

Pale Male: Citizen Hawk of New York City by Janet Schulamn (illus. by Meilo So)

Planting the Trees of Kenya by Claire Nivola
