PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Chicken Sunday by Patricia Polacco is a great book to discuss friendship, and the lesson we can learn from misunderstandings.

Here are some teaching tips to keep in mind when you read this book with your students:

-Start with the pre-reading activities. There is a QR code to scan (or use the link I provided) that will take you to a Reading Rockets video of Patricia Polacco. If you’re doing this as part of an author study as I have in the past, your children will love watching and learning from her!
-Use the vocabulary anticipation guide first before reading, and then discussion cards throughout the week to build deeper understanding. Use the vocabulary words to help students write a prediction.
-Make enough copies of the mini-booklet for everyone to use while you read the story to help students focus their thinking on the characters and events that unfold.
-Pairing Non-fiction with fiction is a powerful reading skill. I’ve included a How-To essay with questions to follow that will supplement Chicken Sunday.
-After reading, use the story map flap-book template to recall the story events and then to write a short summary. This works well in a reader’s response or interactive notebook. I included one of my favorite writing scaffolds for summaries. This will benefit everyone, particularly your challenged writers.
-Choose from several differentiated writing opportunities to culminate this unit. Select the ones that will suit your lesson plans and classroom needs.
