Product Description
Bigfoot Small Group Reading Comprehension Two Week Unit
Intervention

*This is designed for grades 4-6, but could work with high 3rd graders and struggling 7th graders.

This unit was created to help you with your reading intervention groups. There is one lesson per day, for 10 days. Each lesson includes learning targets, written lesson plans, and a guided worksheet. These lessons go with two articles about Bigfoot.

The lessons focus on main idea, inferences, close reading skills, and summary writing. There is a bonus assignment at the end that can be used as a formal assessment. It is a compare and contrast written response with a rubric, paragraph frame, and final copy paper.

Kids love to read and talk about Bigfoot! I chose Bigfoot as a topic because it is high interest. By the time struggling readers are in 4-6th grades, they have been in intervention groups and are bored. Hopefully Bigfoot will grab their attention and spark their interest! These lessons are different and fun.
