This 200+ page packet includes 4 weeks of plans for reading and writing workshop. Each week there is an overview of the lessons that includes to standards, learning targets, and materials needed for each lesson. Then, each day of the week is included in the packet with thorough plans describing each day's lesson. The daily lessons format includes: a small introduction to the lesson, I do, we do, and you do.
The first two weeks focus on Johnny Appleseed and a nonfiction writing piece. The last two weeks are about apples (how to make apple treats, descriptive words, etc.) This is a great unit to start out with at the beginning of the year. It introduces students to the writing trait organization and prepares them to think while they read.
There are also questions included in the packet for a read aloud book that is about Johnny Appleseed. This is a great way for students to practice comprehension strategies.
There are activities included with the lessons to check for understanding. There is also a pre and post writing assessment, as well as a reading test at the end of the unit.
I hope this packet is useful for you! It is prepared for second grade students, but there are activities that could be used with first and third graders depending on their level.
Thank you for purchasing this packet! Enjoy!
