This unit contains the book “Earth Day.” There are three versions--one for intervention groups, one for on-target groups, and one for challenge groups. While the word choice in each level varies, all 3 of them use the same non-fiction feature. All 3 versions teach the same content. These books allow you to provide your readers with text that is “readable” for guided reading. The unit contains a lesson plan with how to develop background knowledge and how to introduce the text. Even though the text in each version varies, all 3 have the same non-fiction features and information. The word work and phonemic/phonics foundational work is differentiated as well. You will be able to choose the activities that best meet the needs of your groups.
There are three different types of follow up activities:
• Word Work for children to practice sight words.
• Phonemic/Phonics Work for children to practice foundational skills.
• Non-fiction Feature Work to practice the feature used in the text.
