Tom's Lucky Day is a play for two voices. This partner play for Thanksgiving is perfect for fluency and comprehension.Kids love them and as they're having fun, they're building fluency and comprehension skills. This set includes a prereading schema builder on preparing the Thanksgiving meal, tier 2 vocabulary words for group discussion, a five page script, comprehension questions that will have your students practicing finding text evidence to support their thinking and a retelling project where students will write an acrostic poem to summarize the reading. You can get a great feel for the unit using the preview supplied.
As a supplement to this unit (or as a stand alone), you can also add in My Lucky Day Reading and Writing Unit to address comprehension skills through analyzing the text and writing skills featuring the Six Writing Traits (voice and word choice) with the link below:
