This unit is designed to be a user-friendly guide, allowing teachers autonomy with regards to how each lesson is carried out.
You will find a unit outline in each section, followed by a daily planning grid which includes a brief description of the teaching point, anchor
chart examples when applicable, and familiar mentor texts to teach each skill.
The mentor texts are listed by title and author, and include page numbers and specific excerpts noted when necessary.
A box for anecdotal notes is included on each day's plan sheet, enabling you to quickly jot down what worked well and what needs reteaching.
Remember, your children should drive your instruction! Here's hoping these units make your life easier and your teaching more effective :)
