An author study is a great way to incorporate many standards into a unit! Patricia Polacco is one of my all time favorite authors.
I have included the following books in this author study:
Mr. Lincoln's Way
The Bee Tree
**I hope to add add more to this in the near future!**
The main focus for this author study is theme and character analysis. Each book has a different activity for discussing theme and character traits.
I have also included...
Vocabulary cards with picture, definition and sentence in context are also included. As well as text-dependent questions and writing prompts.
I like to use these in my centers:
Word Work: Vocabulary
Work on Writing: Prompt
Buddy or Independent Center: Text-dependet questions
I hope you enjoy this product! Please feel free to let me know if there is anything else you'd like to see in this product! I hope to add more soon!
