This unit is designed for grades 3-5, but would still work in second grade with extra support. It includes a mentor sentence focusing on dialogue, reading activities to cover summarizing and theme, a research opportunity, a narrative writing prompt, as well as vocabulary practice.


I’ll see you tomorrow for more advent calendar fun!
