This lesson incorporates a couple of different disciplines. During an economics unit that I was teaching I wanted to integrate the subject into my language arts classes. I found a great book to use in "The Lemonade War" by Jacqueline Davies. I used the book to teach all of the reading strategies that early readers need to learn (predictions, interferencing, visualizing, etc.) as well as teach them basics of economics. This booklet (it folds and staples into a book that they keep through the entire book) follows each chapter with vocabulary, chapter-specific questions, and activities that keep them interested in the progression of the story. There are two additional question worksheets that cover multiple chapter to review what has been read. Finally, there is an written assessment covering all aspects of the book testing their knowledge of the book and their ability to use the reading strategies.
My students LOVE using the books to follow the book and it keeps all of their work neatly together from chapter to chapter.
