Grade K Literacy in Social Studies: Thinking About Families
Family is a wonderful subject for little learners to get excited about. Family is also the theme for a social studies unit that uses literacy standards throughout. The guide outlines approximately three weeks of instruction and breaks down each Common Core standard addressed by tasks or questions the children will complete or be able to answer. The kids will become experts on the topic of family through reading, writing, and discussion. The only thing missing in this resource is an art project. What is kindergarten without an art project?
The Class Election from the Black Lagoon Storia Teaching Guide
One of my favorite things about this resource is that they use a standardized lexile to help you determine who should be reading what book. I also love this great teacher's guide for the book, The Class Election from the Black Lagoon. In it, you'll find a series of guided learning activities, discussion questions, vocabulary terms, comprehension and text connection strategies perfect for teaching kids in grades two and three. Puns, humor, creative writing, and reading comprehension are all used to help learners get the most out of a fantastic book.
How Danny Responds to Conflict (Chapter 5, "The Longest Day")
As they continue to read Eagle Song, learners further develop their reading comprehension skills while working collaboratively with their peers. Following a similar format to previous lessons in this unit, the teacher reads aloud the first few pages of chapter 5 while students work in groups to answer text-dependent questions, supporting their responses with specific examples from the book. Young readers then work independently moving through the rest of the chapter, identifying other significant details in the story as they read. Children then return to their groups to discuss the remaining questions for the chapter, sharing the different supporting details they were able to find. Please note that this unit does not include a lesson for chapter 6 as it involves gang-related issues. It suggests that you either skip the chapter or cover it as a whole-class read aloud and discussion.
