Purpose of Unit

Are you frustrated with morning work, bell ringers, and literacy station resources for upper grades? Do you struggle with finding material that has rigor and yet can be worked on independently? This December National Days unit was created to meet this need for upper 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 December National Day Unit includes:
- 1 of 31 Passage for month of December
- 3 true/false type questions on anticipation guide
- Close read with annotating and coding
