“All Summer in a Day” by Ray Bradbury is one of my favorite short stories to teach. Beautifully written, it is a perfect mentor text for teaching figurative language.
The conflict in the story also offers the opportunity for some social-emotional focus on bullying.
This short story bundle includes everything you need to teach as in-depth a unit as you would like.
Aligned to the Common Core.
Happy Teaching :)
