This 140 page product is jammed-packed with lessons for your read aloud or shared reading block. This month's focus is comprehension, reading strategies, vocabulary, writing, and community building for first grade.
EVERYTHING you need is included!
This month's books are:
David Goes to School by David Shannon
Herman the Helper by Robert Kraus
Have You Filled a Bucket Today? by Carol McCloud
The Pout-Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen
There is a week worth of lesson plans for each of the four books, which means you get a month worth of lesson plans! The lesson plans were carefully crafted to include objectives, reading strategies, vocabulary, comprehension strategies for fiction and nonfiction, craftivities, anchor charts as well as community building activities. Since this is the first month, the building blocks for the year are introduced in this unit. Each unit will get progressively more rigorous and build on the previous.
Original nonfiction and fiction texts are included with this unit. The nonfiction texts include stunning photographs and nonfiction text features such as labels, captions, titles, charts, table of contents, etc.
Here are the titles:
School Around the World
First Grade Helpers (A class book that features alliteration)
Meet Kate/Meet Jen
We are Bucket Fillers (A class book)
It's Okay to Get Mad
When I Feel. . . A Book About Feelings (A class book)
All About Fish
Reading Strategies/Comprehension Strategies Addressed:
How to Take a Picture Walk, Prediction, Fiction vs. Nonfiction, Eagle Eye strategy, Lips the Fish strategy, Characters, Setting, and Retell
I've intertwined community building activities into the lesson plans. The big ideas addressed in this unit are rules, how to be a great student, helping others, being a bucket filler, identifying feelings and it is okay to feel the way you feel, what to do when you feel angry, and changing your mood around.
This all-encompassing unit will quickly become one of your favorites!
As always, please ask questions before purchasing. Thank you so much!♥
