This unit is for the book The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes by Mark Pett and Gary Rubinstein.
Literature Foundations was developed out of the need to incorporate the love of literature and teach fundamental skills at the same time. I have coordinated these skills to the Common Core State Standards.
Share a fiction title with your students along with a nonfiction close reading article. The reading portion of this program is set up to take 20-30 minutes a day. This allows you to incorporate guided reading groups into your day. Guided reading is where your students will get independent practice reading books at their level. I allow 60 minutes for guided reading.
The language and writing portion should be given additional time. Aim to have 30-45 minutes of writing a day.
