Whole Class Reading non-fiction resources and planning for Year 4, in a zip file based on Mordicai Gerstein’s book ‘The First Drawing’. Vocabulary, Prediction, Visualisation and Inference are all covered in this unit. Teaching children how to answer different question types using popular texts will greatly enhance their enjoyment of reading and understanding and this unit complements a study of The Stone Age perfectly.
In this pack you will find 2 x whole class lessons (an hour-long for each – or you can split them); an editable PowerPoint presentation; vocabulary focus; full planning using the KS2 Reading Domains; and the task sheets (of which in this unit are scaffolded at three different levels) all ready to print. The original book is needed to complete the unit.
This unit is suitable for the Autumn term in Year 4.
