This weekend, I finish a new literacy mini-unit that I am really excited about. The Down on the Farm literacy mini-unit includes an original story by me, which is great to use for guided reading or individual assessment (a running record is included). It also includes a shared/interactive reading activity that you could use whole group or as a literacy center. Lastly, it includes an original song written by me, along with puppet cards to go with the story.
Here are a few pictures of what is included:
This is the title page of my original book. I have included leveling for DRA, Reading Recovery, and Fountas and Pinnell Guided Reading .
This is an example of the pages in the story. Most of the story is very repetitive, to build reading confidence and to practice using high frequency words.
