This is my FAVORITE reading unit of the whole year. The reading unit is centered around mysteries with foundational reading skills hidden deep within and leaves room for so much creativity. The kids are hooked from the moment you begin!
The reading journals support the Lucy Calkins Reading Units of Study. It's easy to use whether you're using the new book, Mystery: Foundational Skills in Disguise, or the If/Then book to plan your mystery unit.
The journals were created to support your mini-lessons and homework assignments and includes two mini readers notebooks, one for reading workshop and one for homework. Each page is designed to support the mini-lesson of the day and includes the teaching point and space for reading response. The homework notebook continues the work done in workshop that day and reminds the reader of the day's teaching point. The notebook pages are small on purpose and the writing tasks are meant to be quick jots so students can spend the majority of time reading. You can use this product in conjunction with or in place of the sticky notes suggested in the units.
Quick and easy to use - just print, bind into mini notebooks, and you're ready for weeks of reading workshop!
