PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The book, Come On, Rain! by Karen Hesse is a wonderful mentor text to use to teach all sorts of Reading and Writing skills.

This unit aligns with the following Common Core Standards: ELA-Literacy.L.3.1a, ELA-Literacy.L.3.3a, ELA-Literacy.L.3.5, ELA-Literacy.RL.3.2, ELA-Literacy.RL.4.7, ELA-Literacy.L.4.3a, ELA-Literacy.L.4.5

In this unit you will find a visualization strategy (as you read the book, the students write down things they "see, hear, taste, smell, feel, and feel in my heart"); a making connections to self, text, media, and world chart; figurative language with similes and personification; and identifying awesome adjectives and vivid verbs so they may write with those words later. Answer keys are also included. I hope you will enjoy using this book all year long, just as I have! :)
