I usually spend about two weeks on the unit, but it is designed to pick and choose what works for your kiddos. ;)

Thanks,

Hi Nicole! I purchased this unit and am very excited to use it. I would love to know the timeline for which you implemented this in your classroom. Thank you so much!

On  December 10, 2012Nicole Shelby answered:
Hello,

I am so glad that you are excited about the unit. It is SUCH a fun book to teach! Many of my kids have gone on to purchase and read the other books in the series. A new book comes out April 2, 2013 and my kids can hardly wait.

As far as a timeline of the book, I think that would depend on the level of your students. I teach two different reading classes-they are skill grouped. The higher group moved at a much faster pace than the other group. The faster group finished the books and activities in 2 1/2 weeks. The other group took 3 weeks and I didn't teach ALL of the skills in the book packet for that group. I just did some picking and choosing for what worked best for each group. I did the writing piece about the haunted house during my writing class, which is a separate time period than my reading. It took about 1 1/2 weeks to prewrite, complete a rough draft, edit and revise, and publish.

I hope this helps with planning your instruction. Have fun! How doesn't love a good ghost story? Especially one as cute as 43 Old Cemetery Road.

Thanks,
Nicole
