Happy Wednesday, y'all! I'm here breathing a HUGE sigh of relief because Rooted in Reading March is officially HERE! Amy and I have been working on this unit nonstop over the past month, so it feels like a heavy brick has been lifted off of our shoulders! Amy did a really good job of showing what's all included in our unit. I know I am partial but y'all this one is gooooood!
4 Directed Drawings for your littles to complete. This is my students new favorite part of the week and I often participate myself!
4 crafts to go along with each unit:
4 Nonfiction Readers:
4 Grammar Concepts: Irregular Verbs, Comparative Adjectives, Collective Nouns, and Articles: a, an, the
Lots of comprehension activities, printables, and flap-ups
In this month we began a few new vocabulary activities :)
And, you can't forget, that we planned out your reading and grammar for you for the entire month!!!
Here are a few answers to questions we frequently get asked:
Q: Do you plan on bundling all units?
A: We haven't decided yet. For the time being we are only selling them individually.
Q: Do you plan on mapping out the standards for each month?
A: YES! We are going to release a reading and grammar yearly overview this summer once we are finished with all of the units!
Q: Are you planning on making Rooted in Reading for other grade levels?
A: Unfortunately, no. We are only making this one set for now. We highly recommend Deanna and Deedee's Guiding Reader's Units for K-1
Q: Will August and September be released before Back To School??
A: Yes! We will release both this summer so that you have plenty of time to prep!
Q: Will all standards be addressed throughout the units?
A: All Reading (fiction and nonfiction) and Grammar 2nd grade common core and TEKS will be hit throughout the ten months of Rooted in Reading (with the exception of phonics/spelling standards)
Q: Can I purchase just one of the book units?
A: Logistically, this just gets very complicated. We are only selling them with the Rooted in Reading monthly unit.
Q: Do you use this along with your basal?
A: No, this is the main source of instruction for reading and grammar in our classes.
Q: When will April be released?
A: See below :))))
We hope you enjoy reading all of these books with your classes as much as we do with ours!
