The STAR is a wonderful book with so much for students to learn from.
In this pack students will unpack the following over two weeks.
Reading Focus = Predicting and making connections.
Writing Focus = Persuasive text using gradual release of responsibility, (modelled, guided and independent activities)
Reading Focus = Strategic questioning. (Here , Hidden & Head)
Writing Focus = Retell.
This unit is editable and can be adapted to any students needs.
I have used this with my stage 3 students and they were deeply engaged and loved reading the book.
