    This Thanksgiving bundle includes two units. Tom's Lucky Day is a partner play perfect for the Thanksgiving season, and My Lucky Day Reading and Writing Book Companion, a paired mentor text for writing. You can simply print and go for lots of story telling fun.


    This unit is best for the middle grades. The first step is to use My Lucky Day by Keiko Kasza as your mentor text for reading comprehension and writing. The unit includes before/during/after activities for vocabulary, comprehension skills and writing. Then, students can work on fluency and comprehension strategies with Tom's Lucky Day Partner Play for comparison. You can complete the unit with writing about Turkey Trickery.
