The perfect way to use a powerful anchor text and work on writing simple opinion pieces that have students state an opinion and back up with a 'because' statement.
This is designed to be a one week writing unit using the classic book “Green Eggs and Ham” by Dr. Seuss as the anchor text.
The teacher will begin each day with shared reading of the text to focus in on the specific pages of the text that they will be working with each day (teacher can read aloud, project the text for students to read along, make copies of the target pages, or work to have enough copies of the text that students can share books in small groups)
After the shared reading, students will think-pair-share to discuss their opinion with the Big Question for the day and back it up with a “because’ reason.
Finally the writing fun can begin! Hope you enjoy this wonderful week with your students!
