The adorable story by Devin Scillian, Memoirs of a Goldfish, immediately captured my heart and I love to revisit it through the year. In this unit, you will find two cause and effect activities, a character map, a summarizing strategy, and an adverbs vs. adjectives worksheet. The unit includes answer keys as well.
This is a must-read every year with your class! It's a great way to demonstrate voice as well, since the goldfish is doing all the talking. :)
Currently, I am teaching fourth grade, but have taught first, second, and third grades as well.
I use Reading and Writing Workshop to teach Language. I use Guided Math (small groups) to teach Math. I integrate Science and Social Studies when I can. You will find lessons and activities in my shop that align with these teaching styles.
