This is a unit plan for the story "The Emperor's Egg." You can also purchase the Power Point anticipation guide I designed to go with this unit. This unit includes my original 2 weeks of literacy lesson plans (2nd grade, but you could use it for 1st-3rd), a penguin research chart, and a fiction/nonfiction page that helps students decide what kind of book they have. I've also included three differentiated assessments for the story. They are in order from easiest to hardest, and the directions tell students what to do. Basically they have to sequence the story. Since there's so much stuff here, if you purchase this set and have questions, just email me at email@example.com and I would be happy to help you with any of the components and explain more about how I used them.
