This is an outline of the 2007 Macmillan McGraw-Hill second grade Treasures reading series for Unit 5. It is a great resource to give to parents at the beginning of each week to help them have an understanding of what is taking place during reading/language arts time and for them to study with their child. It is also a nice reference for you as the teacher in order to view the week at a glance.
It contains the following stories for Unit 5:
Dig, Wait, Listen: A Desert Toad's Tale
Pushing Up the Sky
Columbus Explores New Lands
The Ugly Vegetables
All stories list the unit theme, weekly theme, spelling words, spelling challenge words, vocabulary, sight words, short stories, comprehension skills, and grammar skills. I took all of the sight words from each unit and broke them up evenly between stories. Also, all of the challenge words follow the same phonics strategy for the week.
Please check out the other units as well.
