Purpose of Unit

It is difficult finding daily resources for the upper elementary and middle school students that can be used for morning work, bell ringers, and literacy stations? If resources are found then the next difficulty is finding materials that have rigor and yet can be worked on independently? This February National Days unit was created to meet this need for upper elementary grades. It was designed to not just be a filler with low level tasks, but instead was created with rigor and daily writing practice that will increase stamina with your students and take them to a higher level of thinking.

The daily worksheet requires the students to use the text to support their reading and writing. Evidence from the text is required from each passage that will serve as great test preparation and practice by teaching students over and over again each day to base their answers on what the text has stated.

Each FebruaryNational Day Unit includes:

- 1 of 29 Passage for month of February

- 3 true/false type questions on anticipation guide

- Close read with annotating and coding

- Writing on Demand using CCSS Writing Standard based prompts

- Writing that requires passage based responses

- Narrative writing, Expository writing, Opinion Writing
