PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Time to build some good readers! Kim has teamed up once again with her partner Michele Scannell to write the seventh unit in their Reading Workshop Series. This unit of study is actually comprised of two mini-units. The first mini-unit focuses on teaching your young students a variety of reading strategies that will help them solve unknown words. You will teach your students that they have a strategy toolbox and that each strategy is like a different tool.

The second mini-unit we have included is one on learning more about authors. There are lessons on author’s craft and two lessons on getting to know the authors who write our favorite books. These lessons are always a favorite with students. They get so excited looking through their books for examples of craft.

This unit contains an overview of the month, a monthly spreadsheet, a weekly overview and prep sheet for each of the 4 weeks, 20 mini lessons written in ready to use lesson plan form, 4 anchor charts with all the pieces made and ready to reproduce, reading strategy bookmark, 8 sets of text for active engagement, a stretching out word game, a look through the word game, a tool mystery question game, an author’s craft tree map, a speech bubble role play activity, a sample book jacket, a student book jacket and a super cute craftivity to use for the end of unit celebration.

The unit is broken down into four weeks:

*Week one- Introducing the strategy toolbox & specific reading strategies
*Week two- Specific reading strategies and strategies to “fix up” reading
*Week three- Introducing author’s craft and specific types of craft
*Week four- Continuing to teach author’s craft & author study

I am in the process of making all the anchor posters for the readers workshop. When I got to Unit 7, page 111, the bottom boy isnt printing correctly. A little version appears in the the bigger version's head when printing. Have tried twice now and same thing happens. The boy on top and the girls all printed fine. Is this a glitch in the program by chance? I know you are at Vegas right now...can wait on this. Am busy with rest of the units! So excited!!

We don't have 7 or 8 yet. I think our curriculum director has bought them in groups of 3. The last one we have is 6 (we started later in the year so won't get much past 6 this year) I will check tomorrow if she has purchased 6 and 7, but she is probable waiting for the last 3 to be completed

Yes two weeks are on strategies in this unit. Two weeks on authors craft.
