This product is the third unit of my reading workshop curriculum. I designed this unit around a fourth grade classroom, but it can easily be used with a 3rd or 5th grade class.
This unit was designed to help you teach your students how to read nonfiction text by digging deeper and creating a positive reading workshop.
This unit will teach your students concepts, strategies, and techniques for reading and comprehension, while encouraging students to read and interact with good literature
Use text structures to comprehend expository, narrative, and hybrid nonfiction
