The BFG by Roald Dahl is a fine piece of literature which children love. The Big Friendly Giant and Sophie go on adventures to outwit the 9 mean giants. Although the readability is 5-6th grade level, the guided reading plans and book summary frames make it easy for struggling readers and special education students to access this great piece of literature.
I have designed this unit for struggling readers and writers of all levels. My class is a 4-6th grade resource class composed of bright children with a variety of learning challenges including learning disabilities, autism, emotional disturbance, and English Language Learners. This unit is also perfect for intervention groups in an RtI model. My goals with these students are:
1. Allow all types of learners to access the Common Core.
2. Provide the opportunity to experience and dig into fine and long-lasting literature at their grade level.
3. Let students create, engage in, and take pride in their own written summary and illustrated interactive journal of a favorite text.
4. Read, write, draw, and have fun!
