After you finish up your Johnny Appleseed unit, why not add Steven Kellogg's Tall Tale for Paul Bunyan. Full of rich vocabulary and some fun, use these 24 vocabulary cards as you wish. Pick some, or all, and build your close read lesson for 2-5 days worth of lesson planning.
I hope to continue to build on this unit with a sentence scramble, alphabetical order, retell and comprehension test and writing activity. Watch for more to come (consider following me for updates).
Thanks for stopping by!
