I am using 5th grade Treasures next week to discuss the Genre of fairy tales. These are the plans for the week.
There are discussion questions, a plot diagram, compare/contrast activities, comprehension activities, a choice board, critical thinking questions for journal or exit tickets and an independent assessment for Friday. The lessons are designed for approximately 60 minutes of instructional activities.
I end my classes with between 20-40 minutes of independent reading while my kids use the reading log and choice board (see other products) for independent work while I work with small groups on targeted instruction. I did not include small group lessons as those are determined by scores and individualized.
