Product Description
I absolutely love using picture books to introduce reading skills at the beginning of the school year. I believe that it engages the students and helps them understand the skill. From there, they will be ready to apply the skill to more difficult text. 10 Reading Skills in 10 Weeks is designed to allow you to use picture books to introduce basic reading comprehension skills during the first ten weeks of school.
Skills addressed are:
✭Making Connections & Background Knowledge
✭Asking Questions
✭Making Predictions & Inferences
✭Story Elements; including Plot, Setting, and Characters
✭Visualizing
✭Theme & Main Idea
✭Summarizing
✭1st & 3rd Points of View
✭Compare & Contrast
✭Synthesizing

Many aspects of this unit will allow you to utilize any picture book that you feel demonstrates the reading skill. However, in order to teach these skills and incorporate the Mentor Sentences provided, you will need the following books:
✭The Little Red Pen by Janet Stevens
✭Sylvester and the Magic Pebble by William Steig
✭The Sweetest Fig by Chris Van Allsburg
✭The Night I Followed the Dog by Nina Laden
✭Bedhead by Margie Palatini
✭Enemy Pie by Derek Munson
✭Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds
✭Cinderella is Seriously So Annoying by Trisha Speed Shaskan
✭The Littlest Matryoshka by Corinne Damas Bliss and Kathryn Brown

I have also designed this product to easily guide your grammar instruction through the use of weekly Mentor Sentences. Depending on the reading skill addressed, I have also included science, social studies, and writing skills that tie in perfectly.
Grammar Skills addressed are:
✭Capitalization
✭Nouns & Pronouns
✭Adjectives
✭Verbs
✭Verb Tenses
✭Regular & Irregular Verbs
✭Subject/Verb Agreement
✭Adverbs
✭Prepositions
✭Conjunctions

For each week, I have included the following components to help you introduce and assess the skills above.
✭Suggested Mentor Text
✭Anchor Chart
✭Student Mini Anchor Chart Booklet
✭Graphic Organizer for use with the mentor text or any other text
✭One Page Reading Passage for Assessment
