This is an HIGHLY engaging unit for first graders that can be used for your more capable readers, as a center activity, or as a class extension activity.
This is a collection of 5 reading lessons that lasts for approx. two weeks on characters that builds on the unit, 'Readers Meet the Characters in their Books'.Each lesson contains a video explanation (2-3mins long) that teaches the reading strategy. Students then complete worksheets that practices the skills covered. A final product of a character poster is what students produce at the end of the unit. As the unit is self-paced (even for first graders), kids are motivated to work their way around the hexagons. The videos strategy lessons make the content easily accessible and build agency and independence for students. This could also work as a refresher unit for 2nd grade or for high flyers in first grade. This is a PRINT and IMPLEMENT resource with NO PREP for busy teachers. I've attached a teaching video as one of the previews to see the quality of the lesson content. You will not regret this purchase!
