Trying to get your kiddos to talk about books with each other? Then, this is the unit for you! Kim has teamed up with her partner Michele Scannell again to write the second unit in their Reading Workshop Series. This unit contains an overview of the unit, a mini lesson spreadsheet for the month, a weekly overview and prep sheet for each of the 4 weeks, 20 mini lessons written in ready to use lesson plan form, ideas for starting small groups, shopping for books, and deciding on partnerships, 4 anchor charts with all the pieces made and ready to reproduce, a student anchor chart notebook with anchor charts photos in black and white for each student, a circle map and list making activity, a week full of fun retelling activities and a super cute cooking activity to use for the end of unit celebration. These lessons teach your kiddos the procedures for how to talk about books, identify things in books to share with partners, using sticky notes to make thoughts in books, and how to retell stories using drama, reader's theater, craftivity, and a flow map.
