There are many different adaptations of the Wizard of Oz. I wanted my first graders to be able to read the story in a small group setting so the version I have created this unit around is the Stepping Stones version which has been adapted by Daisy Alberto. This is a wonderful adaptation because most of my high level students can read it but it would also be a good version to use as a read aloud. In this unit, there are comprehension questions for each chapter, graphic organizers for each character to discuss their character traits, two writing activities with a prewriting graphic organizer, two comprehension tests with answer keys and a character traits test with answer key. This is one of my favorite units, and a great way to introduce the idea of character traits. I hope your students will enjoy it as much as mine have!
