Someday a Tree Lesson Plans

Deanna and I created the Engaging Readers units to be lessons where students are truly thinking about reading. We want you to celebrate their thinking work first! As a class, you dive into a story for the whole week and practice reading comprehension skills daily. Everything you need for the lessons is right there in the unit! All you have to do is print and teach.  Then, of course, watch how engaged and excited your students get about reading! We’ve heard such amazing feedback about how much teachers and students LOVE these units! So without further ado, check out this unit in action!

Start your week with your first read of the story. I recommend having the book so that you can easily reference during lessons, but here is a video, too! Order the book from Amazon by clicking here, Someday a Tree (aff.).

Someday a Tree: Making Predictions 

For the first reading lesson, students use their predicting skills. They enjoy finding out if their prediction is correct.

Add some sentence starters in a small pocket chart to make that writing even better!

Someday a Tree: Story Retell

Retelling the story is definitely a student favorite! Work together to create a whole-class retelling of the story with the retell cards that are included. See… I told you we give you everything!

There are 2 levels of retell cards. The detailed pictures are great for kindergarten and first grade. For second grade, they focus more on reading and understanding without the picture support. BUT, use what works best for your class!

Someday a Tree: Inferring

By day three, the story is becoming more familiar. Students begin inferring based on what they hear in the story.

Someday a Tree: Making Connections

I always think of when I used to give the DRA to determine a reading level and there was always the making connections question. I can’t tell you how many times kids said, “I didn’t make a connection”. HAHA, alrighty then! Note to self: Add making connections to lesson plans! These students, however, HAVE. IT. DOWN. Read those responses! They are so SWEET!

With every single book, we provide a sentence study! This is the perfect time to work on parts of speech.

    Hi Deedee,
    I was wondering if Vol. 1 & 2 will get the anchor chart for the sentence study? I think I saw a preview of it in the 2nd grade edition, but I was hoping to get it for the other engaging reader units. Or could I just get a copy of the anchor chart of the sentence study. I shows what colors you highlight etc. I love both vol. 1 & 2!!! Thank you so much for all you do!
