Part of the Units of Study in Teaching Reading, Middle School Grades, this unit strikes a delicate balance between encouraging readers to hold on to the magic of reading, allowing them to slip longingly into the pages of a compelling story, and presenting readers with opportunities to engage in meta-analysis, fostering an appreciation of the craft of the text as well as the story.

Although human beings don't experience the metamorphosis that characterizes the life of a caterpillar, the transformation that happens during kindergarten is no less astonishing. Many of your children start their year holding books upside down and backwards and making letters look like squiggles, and then end the year reading and writing for their own important purposes. Phonics instruction is at the center of this transformation.
First-grade phonics is all-important. In this one year, students are expected to make the growth that enables them to go from reading little books comprised of just a few pages to reading early chapter books. In writing, too, there are ambitious expectations—children are asked to go from writing a few lines on a couple of pages to writing books with chapters—filling up multiple lines on a page and organizing their writing into sections.
About the Unit
This engaging new book-length unit will transform your kindergartners into inventive spellers, giving them the tools and strategies they need to approximate the words that are most meaningful for them. The unit celebrates invented spellings as kids develop foundational skills, knowing that your front-and-center goal will be to persuade your kids that they can write, that they too can be members of the literacy club.
