Okay, so, I'm WAY over my head right now with my "to do" list! One of the most pressing things on that list is the creation of a new shared reading book unit. The focus and title of this unit is "Reflective Readers." The title of the book I'm using this year is The Sisters Grimm: The Fairy Tale Detectives. I've done this unit before (the "Reflective Reading" unit), but needed to switch to another text more suited to this year's class.
What I'm wondering is that now that we have a larger group, if anyone would like to do some unit sharing? If so, let's get started!
I need anything and everything you have on that Sisters Grimm title.
I'm willing to share SEVERAL units, a couple of my favorites to begin, Artemis Fowl for older readers, and an author study on Kevin Henkes (author of Chrysanthemum and Lily's Purple Plastic Purse) for primary readers (I taught 2nd grade for 12 years).
http://bookunits.wikispaces.com (UPDATE: NEW URL: http://bookunits.shutterfly.com) as a place to easily share such units, unless someone knows of such an existing site. If so, PLEASE share!
