Product Description

Genre immersion is a logical way to frame your reading curriculum and organize direct instruction. These lessons feature basic reading skills and concepts that readers must master in order to understand the realistic fiction genre. This unit is the first in a series which guides students into a rich understanding of literature by applying similar skills to different fiction genres, deepening their analysis as they go (se "Heat Map" in the preview).

This unit includes 20 mini-lessons, 20 sample anchor charts and 20 corresponding extension activities:

The Lessons

This unit is the first in a series, so the lessons lay a foundation for reading fiction in general, then reading realistic fiction in particular. For a list of the included lessons, see preview.

Formats:

  • Extended Lesson Plan: Includes lesson objective, Common Core Standards, a short mini-lesson script, a sample anchor chart, a reading focus, a listed lesson extension, and suggested read alouds.
  • Lesson Cards: These cards are a shortened version of the extended lesson plan. They include the lesson, CC-Standards, sample anchor chart and suggested read alouds. Keep these on a metal ring in the whole group area for easy access.

Extensions

Each lesson is accompanied by an extension which serves as guided practice. The extension sheets include:

  • Information: a concise restatement of the mini-lesson content.
  • Guided and/or Independent Practice: students apply the skill learned in the mini-lesson to a shared reading or to independent reading.

Format: These pages are small enough to be stored in reading notebooks as a reference. Great for interactive notebooks!

Daily Reading Focus

Also included is a powerpoint which can be used to project the daily “reading focus.” This is a prompt that asks students to apply the learned skill to their independent reading book. Students jot down their response on Reading Bookmarks (included).

Emoji Accordion Books

This product includes a smaller product—Two Emoji Accordion Books. These are used as extensions to a few of the lessons. The two books include:

  • Personal Response: Students express their personal response to their book in writing, then punctuate with emojis. Can be used with independent reading.
  • Live-Texting the Plot: Students describe the plot, then punctuate with emojis. Can be used with independent reading.
