This unit was created for one week of whole group guided reading and writing. The theme for the week is SPIDERS. The focus reading strategy is fact and details although there is SO MUCH more included. Each day a different story will focus on fact and details, and informative text. There are daily lesson plans, anchor charts, literacy connections, sorting activities, crafts and ideas for project based learning. It is all you will need and more to introduce, cover, and teach this concept.
