This is JAM PACKED with MANY activities to do with your students that have all been aligned to COMMON CORE! You can certainly complete all of the activities as a genre unit study. However, you may wish to pick certain activities and turn it into a week long genre study rather than a 3 week study. My students and I both LOVE the latest— Interactive Journaling! Interactive journals serve as a GREAT form of assessment and a fabulous end-of-the-year portfolio component! I hope you will too! I have included PLENTY OF PHOTO SAMPLES to help you along as well! I have also included detailed lesson plans that can guide you in your instruction should you feel it necessary. The lesson plans include the COMMON CORE standard. I have also included the Common Core Standards in kid-friendly language to be implemented into their interactive journal! Please open the preview file to see the photo samples of everything that's included. Skills and Common Core Standards covered are:
Fictional Genre Study
Unknown Words RL.3.4; L.3.4
Compare and Contrast RL.3.9
Character Traits and Inference RL.3.3
