Also, included in unit 2 is a little visual for retelling called the 3 part Retelling! For this you’ll teach the kiddos that at the beginning of the story we are off to a great start…knowing who is in the story and where they are. Once we get to the middle of the story we have to slow down because we are facing a problem. At the end of the story we can stop because we have resolved the problem and *hopefully* there has been a happy ever after!
Unit 2 is made up of 5 weeks yo you’ll have five sets of these VERY detailed teacher lesson plans! No more reinventing the wheel…I already built the whole car for you 😉
As the students study the importance of labels within a nonfiction text…they will also be helping to label themselves like in this five senses activity!
