PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The attached file is a six week long unit designed to go with the Winds of Change first grade Common Core Curriculum Map. Each week is a five day lesson plan with student packets for each week, including a cover sheet. There are also video and technology links included.

The plans include: focus standards, vocabulary, essential questions, I can statements and technology links.

Students will begin by generating feeling words to help them determine when in the story, they can identify a characters feelings and also when they change. They will also study the characters of Arnold Lobel and compare and contrast them. They will read poetry and answer questions about it and also identify the feelings or mood of each. Students will then learn about text features using various texts about tornadoes and the wind. They will wrap up this unit by reading The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and finally, watching the movie. I have included a permission slip and educational activities to go along with the film.

These are the texts that I used for the units (I have included Word and PDF versions of each document so that you could change them based on your needs/various texts):
