This book will coordinate teaching beginning non-fiction skills and September 11 awareness. As a narrative non-fiction, this text is a lovely segue into non-fiction skills after focusing on fiction skills.
This unit contains worksheets and interactive journal items for each skill. It also includes the beginning of a non-fiction text features notebook so that students can explicitly learn non-fiction text features. If you follow the rest of my units, the text features notebook will be built upon throughout the year. These units all have the comprehension strategies explicitly integrated into the lesson plans. These are tried and true lesson plans from my classroom.
Like the first literacy units in the First Four Weeks of School bundle (https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-First-Four-Weeks-of-School-Literacy-Unit-Bundle-3185113), this unit supports your entire ELA block. You can simply print the lesson plans & teach with minimal preparation!
