This bundle was created based upon the Lucy Calkins third grade character unit of study. The bundle includes two bends of the unit.
Inside the bundle you will find:
- A day by day unit overview including chapters to be read, lesson focus and materials for the lesson.
- A slide presentation, totaling 186 pages, for each day of the unit. Each lesson in the slide presentation follows this format: Learning Target, Connection, Teaching Point, Active Engagement, Link, Independent Reading, Notes for the teacher for conferring and small group work, Midworkshop Teaching, and Share. The slides are engaging and a great tool for teachers to stay on track throughout the lesson.
- A 16 page packet which follows each day of the slide presentation. Each page of the packet has space for to students to complete their assigned independent reading work for the day, as well as an example for them to follow.
This resource can also be used with fourth and fifth graders as it requires many higher level thinking skills.
The mentor text for this unit is Because of Winn Dixie by: Kate DiCamillo.
**Each part of the bundle has already been converted into the following formats Keynote, PowerPoint, PDF, Pages and Word.**
