Included in this unit are pieces for a schema chart for each topic, a fun and engaging topical class graph, a simple informational teacher text, and writing organizers and sheets.
The topics covered in this Fall edition are as follows:
The Apple Life Cycle
The Pumpkin Life Cycle
All About Bats
The Spider Life Cycle
All About Turkeys
This unit works well as a paired text with thematic pieces of literature. It also helps to promote informational writing throughout the school year. For those teachers in Tennessee who participate in the Early Learning Model Portfolio, these simple texts and response sheets can challenge and enrich your students as they work to develop these informational writing skills. (This is a great supplement to the Tennessee Portfolio Helper units.)
* This unit also pairs well with my close read units with Erin Eberhart Lynch. The following close reads can be found on her TpT store:
Close Read: Johnny Appleseed
Close Read: How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin?
Close Read: Stellaluna
Close Read: The Story of the Pilgrims
Close Read: Turkey Trouble
I hope you enjoy this unit! A Winter-themed and Spring-themed unit will be coming soon.
