The literature focus of this unit is going to be on an author by the name of Andrew Clements. For this unit, we will be using the pattern of practice called literature circles. The books that will be used in this selection are going to be: Frindle, Room One, A Weekend in the Woods, The Report Card, No Talking, and Camping (informational book). Although the informational book Camping is not by the author, the novel A Weekend in the Woods talks about a group of fifth graders going on a camping trip. For independent reading, students will have a choice to choose one of the five books. Once they choose one of the five books, this book will now become their “book club” book. For literature circles, I will choose the book that closely fits to the reading level of the students. No Talking would fit nicely with this unit and is a wonderful teacher read aloud.
