I am teaching from the Thirsty Planet Unit. This is the first lesson: A Drop of Water. I taught on this story for 2 weeks. This is Day 1 - 4. I am in the process of making week 2 (Day 5-8). *Please follow my page! Thanks!!
Day 1: I focused on standard RI 2.1 (ask and answer questions) to introduce the new unit to the class.
Day 2: I focused on RI 2.4 Unfamiliar/Unknown Words
Day 3: Author's Purpose (RI 2.6)
Day 4: Unfamiliar/Unknown Words (RI 2.4)
*This is a great resource. It includes a lot of context clues and author's purpose practice. There are also hyperlinks for videos to watch.
