This is NEW TWIST CLOSE READ on the book Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving, by Dav Pilkey. This story will excite your students for FALL and THANKSGIVING, teach REAL LIFE SKILLS on problem and solution, and make a decision about if what the students did on their field trip was right or wrong? This week long study focuses on the following skills: GENRE, AUTHOR, ILLUSTRATOR, SEQUENCING, ANTONYMS, SYNONYMS, VOCABULARY, DIGGING DEEPER INTO TEXT, COMPREHENSION, and GRAPHING. Each day has a WRITING activity to accompany it. You have 4 MAIN FOCUS QUESTIONS to choose from that require students to THINK, 8 STORY COMPREHENSION for you to use with SMALL or WHOLE GROUP INSTRUCTION, 15 ILLUSTRATED VOCABULARY CARDS, and TITLE PAGE for them. This CLOSE READ 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.All you will need to do is print and cut the EASY PREP PRINTABLE for ELA JOURNALS or notebook paper. I hope you enjoy this story as much as I do!
