This mini unit was created to supplement instruction for the book Old Tracks, New Tricks by Jessica Petersen. This is an adorable story. The text is written with a specific rhythm and beat, and is perfect for introducing rhyming in a story format. In this mini unit, I tried to focus on big ideas and making the text accessible for younger learners.
This mini unit includes:
• 3 Days of simple, bulleted lesson plans
• Vocabulary cards and instructions
• Reading comprehension instruction and anchor chart for story elements
• Figurative language lesson (onomatopoeia)
