This unit is another very exciting unit for me. I have taken a classic and brought it to the common core in a brand new way. This product gives several examples of activities that scaffold each other and help students build the knowledge of the book, and then continue to dig deeper.
In this packet, students will explore responses to literature. In addition, they will learn how to use diagrams (venn diagrams and concept webs). By using the concepts in this book, I have integrated Science and Social Studies into this packet.
Here is a list of what is included in this pack...
- Concept web
- Connections to text and real life (drawings of house, students can make connections to their own houses... draw and label what they have in their houses, addresses)
- Attributes or Properties of Objects (light and heavy) Activity and sorting page
- Response to literature (several pages) Do you think that the big bad wolf is being a good citizen? (for example) Favorite part? Favorite character?
- Non-Fiction elements - compare real wolves to fantasy (poster included)
- Pigs: what else lives on a farm, rhyming
- Match pigs to house
- Character and setting
- Problem and Resolution: How would you fix the pigs' houses?
*This is an Reading/Writing/Literacy Unit integrated with Science & Social Studies... Math is not included in this packet.
This pack is similar to the Integrated packet for Goldilocks. I like to teach many of these skills with familiar characters so that students can concentrate on the new concepts.
