Today, I'm sharing my dear friend Carla's freebie from Comprehension Connection. Do you love Patricia Polacco? Do you love using her books in your class? I think I hear a resounding YES out in the audience! Carla created a book unit for Polacco's book, For The Love of Autumn, which you'll find on page 6 of the ebook. I know you'll want to check it out the minute you finish reading this post. :)
Geared grades 4 and 5, this useful collection of literacy activities will give your students valuable practice with cause and effect, vocabulary, reader's response and QAR. Check out this page from Carla's freebie. I love how she explains QAR so effectively. I've used this strategy for many years with my third graders. It really empowers them as readers and test takers once they know how to use it.
I hope you'll all take some time to download Lessons From The Heart ebook today. You'll find a 6 traits poetry freebie in there from yours truly on page 13 of the ebook! I'd love to hear what you think of the ebook, so please take some time to leave a comment for me or for Carla on her blog, Comprehension Connection. Have a great weekend and see you back here in a few days for Mentor Monday!
