In the small companion book that Lucy Caulkins just published,the one specifically geared to second grade, it says that after the Small Moments Unit 2 you would move on to Realistic Fiction? Is anyone doing this yet in their second grade class. How is it going? Any advice?

Wow! That is a great idea! I wish I had heard of it before starting realistic fiction.

This is my first year with UOS as well and I'm planning to start the realistic fiction unit in December. I LOVE the idea of having them physically create a character.

Luvtoteach13~ Would you mind sharing the parent letter you sent explaining the project??

thanks!!!

I 'm starting the Realistic Fiction unit this week. My students were given a project to do about a month ago to prepare for this unit. They had to physically create a character using oaktag, fabric/felt, any other art supplies that they wanted to use. After they created their character they had to do a report on it including:
the characters name
characters age
characters likes and dislikes
characters hobbies
chracters family and friends
and other information.

We also have a class character that we created together as a class. I think the students are going to enjoy this unit.

This is my first year using TC Reading and Writing. Thankfully, I have a wonderful literacy coach who helps me plan out each unit.
