This common core reading and writing unit that includes printable pages on vocabulary, comprehension, grammar, fluency, and writing connected to the narrative story The Sleeping Pig. In addition it includes scaffolded, differentiated activities for a variety of learners. Common core standards are listed and standards in reading foundational skill, reading literature, writing, and language skills are all address. Additionally, mentor sentences are used to authentically teach CCSS language standards through the Gradual Release model. Writing scaffolds and organizers are also provided with the addressed CCSS Writing text types present in the printables. I use these all effectively in my own first grade classroom.
What this includes:
Two Versions of the unit - one that is scaffolded for learners who need extra support and one that is not scaffolded
Two Writing Prompts that have pre-writing activities for narrative and opinion text writing. Mentor texts for each writing type (modeled writing) are also included.
THIS UNIT WAS COMPLETELY REDONE MARCH 2015. PLEASE RE-DOWNLOAD IF YOU HAVE AN OLDER VERSION. I ADDED 40 PAGES AND UPDATED WITH DIFFERENT FONT/ACTIVITIES/CLIP ART.
