I am thrilled that you stopped by to check out my book unit!
Each chapter comes with comprehension questions and an activity or skill. The unit address but is not limited to the following Common Core Standards:
RL.1.1 ask and answer questions about key details
RF.1.2 understanding of spoken phonemes
RF.1.3 grade level phonics and decoding skills
RF.1.4 accuracy and fluency
W.1.2 write explanatory text
The skills after each chapter are as follows:
short a words

I will use this book as a read aloud starting the first week of school to help the students settle in with a fun activity. Using the unit will also give me a rough idea of the skills my new students have. However, this unit can be used in small groups or large groups. Upper level students can certainly read and record their own responses. Lower level students will need guidance when working through the unit, or the unit can be completed orally with teacher instead of written.
