PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Fifth grade reading. Fifth grade reading unit. Al Capone Does My Shirts reading unit. AL Capone Does My Shirts Literature unit novel study. Common core literature unit.

This unit is exactly what you need to teach your fifth grade learners in an engaging format with the book, Al Capone Does My Shirts.

This unit digs deep into EVERY SINGLE common core reading literature and main writing standard.

I am at a school that doesn’t have a reading or writing curriculum. I know I am not alone when I say that this is a blessing and a curse all at the same time. As educators, we don’t want to just “hit” the standards, we want to dig deep into every single standard and we want them all to come together into one cohesive and beautiful piece of work. Sometimes it is hard to produce lessons like this all.the.time,

But fear no more teacher friends. This unit teaches your students about every single fifth grade literature standard in an engaging, though-provoking, and fun unit and all the work is done for you.

I was introduced to the “Socratic Seminar” and I fell in love after I saw this method in practice, and I think you will too! You can use these lessons as your reading lessons to teach (and dig deep) into every single CCSS reading literature standard for fifth grade.

I still do guided reading, book clubs, literature circles, and Daily 5 in my classroom, so I know this can work with any type of reading program that you already have in place. These could even be used as a class novel study for read aloud.

In this unit, your students will get tons of support and conversations from their peers, will be exposed to literature and vocabulary at or above their grade level, and become part of a reading community. Yet it still gives you the flexibility to work with groups of students at their particular reading levels. I’m telling you, it’s a game changer.

In this unit you will find:
1. Using this resource in your classroom
2. The Socratic Seminar: research base and strategy in practice
3. Teaching vocabulary with novel studies
4. Different reading workshop set-ups
5. Scripted lesson examples
6. Reading response notebook examples from my classroom
7. Common Core standard alignment
8. 16 Lesson plans
9. BONUS Resource: Al Capone Close Reading and Text Dependent questions, and interactive notebooks summarizing/main idea lessons
10. Reading response rubrics
