My first unit was on Sarah, Plain and Tall. We truly enjoyed this unit. The students kept a descriptive language reading journal. After reading each chapter, the students chose a passage that "painted a picture in his/her mind". The students then drew and colored the picture. I made these journals simply by folding a 8x12 sheet of paper and stapling in the center. I was truly impressed by how simple and beautiful the journaling activity was. The students treasured the journals they created.

Also, the students brainstormed adjectives that describe them. For instance, Amanda, tall and ambitious. Tell them I ______ (teach, dance, sing, draw, etc).

I am attaching somethings that I used for the unit.

Have fun!
