The attached file is a week-long lesson plan designed to go with the first grade Common Core Curriculum Map Unit "Alphabet Books and Children Who Read Them." In my progression, this would be week 1; however they do not have to be taught in this particular order. This lesson plan is a 5 day plan along with a student packet with a cover page and student activity pages. There are also links to Brainpopjr.com if you have access to it and online games. I have included both PDF and Word versions of each document if you would like to make changes to them.
The plans include: focus standards, vocabulary, essential questions, I can statements and technology links.
The focus standards are:
RI.1.2 Identify the main topic and retell key details of a text.
RI.1.7 Use the illustrations and details in a text to describe its key ideas.
In these lessons students will review title and author as well as practice identifying the topic and key details from a text. They will learn how to stay healthy by reading nonfiction books about exercise and germs.
The books I used for the lessons are (these could be changed)
“Germs, Germs, Germs” by Bobbi Katz
“Exercise” by Sharon Gordon
