Plan with Me (Week of Aug 31-Sept 4) Visual Plans

Aren't lazy Sundays the best? I've done absolutely nothing today except reading and write this blog post. Sometimes a little break is exactly what you need!
This week we are diving into our second vocabulary cycle, starting our second comprehension skill of story elements and learning about the 4 types of sentences! It's gonna be a fun week!

I've left Thursday somewhat open because we might need it to review the LA skill. If the kids do well with it on Wednesday, then we will move onto a close reading mini lesson. If you want to know more about how I teach close reading, let me know and I'll do a post on it! :) 

Resources used:
4 Types of Sentences Strategic Teaching Lesson ( I absolutely LOVE these lessons!!!)
4 Types of Sentences QR Codes (This is the alternate plan for Thursday if I see that the kids need additional help with this skill. I'll also use these whole group task cards for my strugglers. I remembered these two resources after I made the visual plans so I forgot to include them!)

Hope y'all have a happy week! 


  1. Hi, I notice in your planner, you have Reading Street resources listed, but on the visual plans, you have that you're reading Frindle. Can you explain how you mesh the two? We are required to use reading street, but my district is also pushing independent reading/book studies...and I'm at a loss...

  2. I would like to know how you do your close reading!

  3. Hey Leslie Ann! I look forward to seeing your plans for the upcoming week! I would definitely like to know how you teach close reading. Thanks again for all you do!

  4. Do you have BDA for Literature and Informational Standards?
