Product Description
In this packet
My "Lessons in a Jiffy" units are a series of high interest non-fiction topics. In each unit, I have prepared a read aloud as well as 3 different levels of guided reading books on the same topic. I also include writing prompts, foldables, tons of graphic organizers, research/fact pages, text dependent comprehension questions and other "goodies"! All designed to work together! (Basically, if you use all of the activities, you will have much of your reading block planned out and ready to go in a "jiffy" for at least a week!)
.
Specifically in this mini unit you will find the following:
-a “hook” picture “Think and discuss” and quick write activity to kick-start the mini unit
-a read aloud that uses real pictures
-3 levels of readers to use in guided reading in color and black and white (easy, medium and hard-with varying levels of length and complexity of vocabulary.) All of the texts cover the same basic material/topic. I have even included one black and white copy with pictures and no words for the children to write their own to go with the picture!
-Pumpkins circle map in color and black and white
- “t-chart” (can, have are chart) in color and black and white
-6 foldables to use for collecting information as you go back into the text. Topics: 5 Pumpkin Facts, Pumpkin Life cycle, main idea and details, what I learned, vocabulary words to know, text dependent questions/comprehension)
-Let’s label the pumpkin in color and black and white
-“Write the Room” with real pictures and response sheet
-life cycle crown -Life cycle anchor chart in color and black and white
- Pumpkins research booklets to record information as they go
- Pumpkins vocabulary booklet to record vocabulary as they go
-Survey “What is your favorite thing made from pumpkins?” and response sheet
-“K-W-L” pumpkins chart to use all along the way
-Vocabulary review sheet
-4 different “Let’s Compare______ to ______” Venn Diagrams in color and black and white
-4 different Spin and write spinners with special foldable
-8 different writing prompts including opinion writing
-18 different picture writing prompts using real pictures


Depending on how many of the coordinating activities you decide to use, this unit can either last one day or more a week! With this high interest topic, your children will be engaged and having fun while getting much needed exposure to informational nonfiction texts!
