I hope you enjoy this unit and find value in the content. According to the Common Core it is recommended that we take a closer look at text. This may take 2 to 3 days with the same text. This may be a shift in your instruction. However, it allows the focus to go deeper. This unit is written to model this shift.
This unit was created for 2nd grade, but could be a used with a higher first grade class or a lower 3rd grade class.
