Reading unit or Literature Circle designed according to the Common Core Standards. I use innovative strategies to enrich students to become participants in the story they are reading. They become part of the story by relating questions towards their own real-life experiences. This also helps in connecting students to the characters of the story. I also include discussion questions with a partner for any ELL (English language learner). Also Included is a Vocabulary Unit, which contains a list of vocabulary words with print out vocabulary cards along with example vocabulary lesson plans for each chapter. It’s action packed with all these goodies plus some different ideas you can use with the book.
