The attached file is a two week-long lesson plan designed to go with the first grade Common Core Curriculum Map Unit "The Amazing Animal World.” In my progression, this would be weeks 5 and 6; however, they do not have to be taught in this particular order. This lesson plan is a 10 day plan along with a student packet with a cover page and student activity pages as well as a retelling packet with pictures and spaces to write short summaries of each section. 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:
RL.1.1 Ask and answer questions about key details in a text.
RL.1.2 Retell stories, including key details, and demonstrate understanding of their central message or lesson.
Students will read Finn Family Moomintroll and answer comprehension questions and creating a timeline of the stories events to practice retelling the story.
The book used for this lesson is “Finn Family Moomintroll” by Tove Jansson.
