I cannot believe it has taken me so long to make a Bread and Jam for Frances unit! When I was young, I had a recording of the story being read. I listened to it so many times, the record no longer worked. I can still remember the exact tunes to the songs Frances sings in the story. Now, as a parent, Frances' name comes up regularly at the dinner table. In this unit study, you will find comprehension questions (inferential and concrete), vocabulary studies, character studies, summary activities, dialog analysis, a narrative writing, and an expository writing piece for each short story in the book. This unit study can be used for guided reading, independent reading, or literature circles (I have used portions for homework as well). Bread and Jam for Frances has a lexile level of 420 and is a Fountas and Pinnell level J/K. This unit study satisfies RL.1 and 2 CCSS and W.1 and 2 CCSS. I have used this unit with success from gifted grade one through grade four (for students reading with extra support). It is a versatile unit, as the stories are funny and appealing to children of all ages (my high school readers have been known to beg for Frances read-alouds).
