This intermediate unit (3rd-5th grade) is based on Lucy Calkin’s reader’s workshop. This is unit 1/book 1: Building a Reading Life. The unit includes the Common Core ELA standards for each lesson. There 18 lessons, 2 additional teaching days, and 1 day for an end of the unit celebration. Each lesson within the unit has the standards, objective/goal, minilesson, and additional notes and resources. They reference the page number from Lucy Calkin’s book (but the book is not required to be able to teach). This unit also contains anchor charts. This breaks down the book into a user friendly format anyone can follow! Have fun teaching.
