Mittens by Lola Schaefer is a sweet beginning reader about Mittens, the cat. This unit would work well for first grade level readers. It focuses on schema building, story plot, visualizing, cause and effect relationships, making connections, responding to comprehension questions, and comparing fiction and nonfiction. There are 9 pages included (one page per skill) for teachers to choose skills that fit curriculum needs. Other beginning reader units included through my store are Biscuit books, Follow Me Mittens, and books by Syd Hoff and Lois Ehlert. I hope you'll stop by and check out these other resources too. Thanks for shopping at Comprehension Connection!
