Unit 7: Reading and Role Playing: Fiction, Folktales, and Fairy Tales
In this unit students become actors. They get to know the characters and discover predictable roles. Readers recognize the morals, lessons and author's purpose of the stories.
The lessons have easy daily scripts for the teacher to use during the reading workshop lesson. Each mini lesson includes a connection, teaching point, active engagement, link, mid-workshop teaching point, share time, recommended mentor text and the common core standard met.
This unit is to be taught in April and May. There are 20 easy to follow scripted lessons.
