This pig unit features original annotated articles on pigs, a pre/post assessment on information, a glossary, comprehension questions, grammar taught through mentor sentences, common core writing built in that includes informative and opinion writing tied to pigs. It also features poetry! This is a comprehensive unit that I have used successfully in my first grade classroom, but it can be used in K (for high achievers) and it is definitely usable in 2nd grade as well. Most of the pages have the CCSS written right on them for ease.
I COMPLETELY REDID THIS UNIT IN AUGUST 2015 TO INCLUDE MUCH MUCH MORE (INCLUDING AN ACTIVITY WHERE STUDENT ASSEMBLE AN ARTICLE BASED ON TEXT FEATURES).
Many of the pages are DIFFERENTIATED to meet the needs of students.
The unit doubled in size so please re-download if you have purchased.
Please check my store for more common core based units.
