If you use the Scott Foresman's Reading Street reading series in your classroom, this is a must-have for supplemental material!
In this unit you will find:
-amazing word practice
-compare and contrast activities
-long e word practice
- decodable reader connection activity
-a writing prompt for EACH of the 3 writing pieces (narrative, informative/explanatory, and opinion).
This Common Core aligned unit is just what you need to run centers, independent practice, and group work! It's also great for a substitute because it is self explanatory. I do not give detailed instructions on how to use the unit because every classroom is different and your students needs are different than mine. But, like I said, each section easy to read and understand.
