This week long CLOSE READING is perfect for the HOLIDAY SEASON! This set focuses on the following skills: GENRE, AUTHOR, ILLUSTRATOR, SEQUENCING, ANTONYMS, SYNONYMS, VOCABULARY, DIGGING DEEPER INTO TEXT, COMPREHENSION, CHARACTERS, SETTING, STORY MAPPING and GRAPHING. Each day has a WRITING activity to accompany it. You get 3 MAIN FOCUS QUESTIONS to choose from that require students to THINK,WRITE, and ILLUSTRATE, 8 STORY COMPREHENSION QUESTIONS for you to use with SMALL or WHOLE GROUP INSTRUCTION, 8 ILLUSTRATED VOCABULARY CARDS, and a FIVE DAY POEM with detailed instructions. This CLOSE READ of The Gingerbread Man, Retold by Jim Aylesworth is recommended for KINDERGARTEN through 3rd GRADE, but can be used for STRUGGLING students in UPPER GRADES. You get a 5 DAY LESSON PLAN with detailed instructions, PLAY DOH RECIPE, and GINGER BREAD GLYPH PROJECT with detail instructions. All you will need to do is print and cut the EASY PREP PRINTABLE for ELA JOURNALS or notebook paper. This story is a favorite of so many students and they LOVE orally saying "Run, run, as fast as you can, you can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread Man. This unit focuses on so many COMMON CORE standards and gives instruction for each grade level on how to adjust the lessons each day.
If you are in on the GINGERBREAD EXCHANGE PROJECT, this is a MUST HAVE for you! You get your GINGERBREAD GLYPHS for students to make and have ready to mail off to other parts of the United States!
