This is a great common core unit to introduce sequencing, plots, diagramming, and retelling. A power point tells the story of a bear going to the market. Bart is a friendly bear who goes to the market and buys 1 apple, then 2 bananas and so on. This predictive text allows for student engagement and has a game to play as well in whole group activities. There is a worksheet for market schema initially as well, followed by a sequencing activity, character, setting, and summary. Also, there is a syllable sort and an open sort allowing for great discussion where students decide how to sort and discuss their strategy on sorting.
All credits are given to fonts and clip art used at the end of the presentation. Enjoy!
