PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Daily plans are based on 45 minute class periods. This is a suggested progression that you should adjust per your literacy block and the student needs in your classroom.

Our students were still having trouble writing a main idea sentence, so we added in a “big idea” anchor chart where, after reading a series of chapters, we followed the Somebody-Wanted-But-So-Then format and wrote one or two sentences. This really helped firm up their understanding of this strategy. We emphasized that as we write these key sentences, they relate to the “I can” statement of explaining how a series of events connect together.

Visualization, determining importance, asking questions and inferencing were taught through mini-lessons and applied through marking our thinking assignments.

Teacher modeling of all strategies has been built into lesson plans.

Think notes and rubrics are utilized through the gradual release of responsibility throughout this unit.
