This unit was created for one week of whole group guided reading and writing. The theme for the week is HALLOWEEN. The focus reading strategy is main idea and details, although there is SO MUCH more included. Each day a different story will focus on main idea and details, characters, setting, and predicting. There are daily lesson plans, anchor charts, literacy connections, sorting activities, crafts and ideas for project based learning. It is all you will need and more to introduce, cover, and teach this concept.
Books Featured using Main Idea and Details:
• Room on the Broom by Donaldson
• The Little Old Lady who Wasn’t Afraid of Anything by
• Click, Clack Boo by Cronin
• Scaredy Cat, Splat!
• Froggy’s Halloween London
There are also blank templates so you can incorporate any book with the literacy connections.
This is part of a weekly series of units covering different reading strategies throughout the year.
