This unit is intended for upper elementary students and is designed to guide language arts instruction for one week (approximately 45 minutes/day). This fabulous non-fiction picture book will be used as a springboard to teach the following skills/standards:
Constructed response with textual evidence
Writing a paragraph with a topic sentence and supporting details
Writing narrative pieces
You will receive reading assessments (that may alternately be used as group or partner work), grammar skills sheet and quiz, and a guided writing activity.
This aligns with fourth grade ELA standards but can also be easily modified to target third or fifth grade standards.
I’m creating more week-long units with other picture book mentor texts, so check back often for new materials.
