• daily objectives
• beautifully designed worksheets, activities, and notes
• a PowerPoint to use in conjunction with the lesson each day

• reading comprehension

*Please note, due to copyright limitations, this product DOES NOT CONTAIN A COPY OF THE STORY! You will need to provide this to students (I do include links in the lesson plan to web addresses that, at the time of this publication, were hosting full-text versions of the story.)
