This file contains a 6 day (15-20 min reading group) abbreviated plan for the book Lunch Walks Among Us (Franny K. Stein) by James Benton. This book is part of the Scholastic Guided Reading Collection. Plan includes before reading teaching points, a "thinking job" for students to keep in mind during reading, and after reading discussion questions and follow up seatwork.
There is a no-prep printable for each day that students can complete as follow-up seatwork.
The primary focus standard of this unit is vocabulary (RL.3.4- Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, distinguishing literal from nonliteral language.) Many other standards are hit upon throughout the lessons as well!
Please see the preview to view the format of the plan and student sheets! If you need an editable version so you can adapt to your school's format, contact me and I will email it to you as a Microsoft Word file.
