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 2; 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, an alphabet book template and cards to sort into a Venn diagram. There are also links to videos and websites. 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 standard is:
RI.1.9 Identify basic similarities in and differences between two texts on the same topic (e.g., in illustrations, descriptions, or procedures)
The books I used for the lessons are (these could be changed)
• “Alphabet City” by Stephen T. Johnson
• “The Graphic Alphabet” by David Pelletier
• “Alphabet Mystery” by Audrey Wood and Bruce Wood
