I have created close reading lesson plans for kindergarten and first grade for three variations of the fairy tale, "The Three Little Pigs:"
-"The Three Little Pigs" by James Marshall
-"The True Story of the Three Little Pigs!" by Jon Scieszka
-"The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig" by Eugene Trivizas
These are perfect for a fairy tales unit or just for enjoying different versions of a classic story.
These are also perfect for sub plans because all you need to do is print the lesson plan (and vocabulary activity if you wish) and provide the book! The details of the lesson have already been written for you!
Each lesson plan is 3 days worth of close reading for each story:
Day 1: Overall comprehension
Day 2: Focus on vocabulary (vocabulary words and ideas for activities are included)
Day 3: Deeper comprehension with text-dependent questions (questions with page numbers are included)
Included is a close reading starter guide that will help you understand close reading and will give you ideas for:
-how to structure your lessons
-how to teach vocabulary in engaging and interactive ways
-how to create text-dependent questions
Also included is 2 vocabulary activities:
*Homophones (relates directly to homophones found in "The True Story of the Three Little Pigs)
*A general vocabulary activity that can be used with any book
