What's Included?

This is a 6-week unit that is broken down to day by day lessons. It is organized around traditional literature with one week for each genre (fairy tales, fables, myths, folk tales, and legends). There is a combination of fiction and nonfiction lessons, and most lessons require students to use evidence from the text. Each lesson contains directions for a mini lesson, independent reading time, and closing. There is also an additional handout or guided practice activity for each of the lessons.

Each week of the unit also includes the following:

-reading choice board for homework
