Product Description
Patricia Polacco Close Reading 3 Week Unit Grades 3-6

*Please view the preview to a see a good overview of the product.

This is a 3 week close reading unit using three Patricia Polacco books:

1. Week 1: Teach Week using Chicken Sunday
2. Week 2: Active Engagement Week using Thank you, Mr. Falker
3. Week 3: Independent Week using My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother

This unit was written by myself and two other teachers after we read the book Notice and Note by Beers and Probst, and after we attended a conference on the common core reading standards put on by Lucy Calkins. We thought to ourselves, "Wouldn't it be great if a Notice and Note book existed for younger students?"

This unit fills that void and teaches young students how to read closely for what a text says (key ideas and details) and how the text says it (craft and structure) The unit is aligned to CCSS.

The unit teaches students how to read closely for 1. Theme 2. Character Development 3. Author's Craft 4. Word Choice 5. Plot. The unit includes detailed daily plans for each week, anchor charts and organizers for the students.

We use this unit in our classrooms to teach our students to read text closely. The students then apply the strategies learned (and use the anchor charts and organizers) to do the same deep reading work with other texts. We have seen tremendous improvement in the way our students are able to analyze text.
