This is a book study based on the Accelerated Literacy approach. If you are not an AL school, that doesn't matter as this program can still be tailored for your needs.
This is a fantastic book study for Visual Literacy!
The program was designed to meet the Stage 2 Australian Curriculum content and indicators. However, I have used this program for year 2 and year 5.
This program incorporates grammar and punctuation concepts, reading and comprehension and writing.
This is a perfect time saver for you and your classroom. Have smooth transitions between lessons. If you ever have a sick day, don’t stress! Just save this to a USB/ Flashdrive and have your casual plug it in and go! NO PREP needed on your behalf!

To write a narrative about one of the following ideas:
• A fear of climbing,
• A fear of the dark,
• A haunted house etc
The idea is that students will use what they have learnt throughout this unit to help guide their own narrative. It will be like a parallel write because The Deep is about a girl’s fear about the deep water.
