Reading: Digging Deeper

Hello everyone! It's Michelle from Fabulous in First. When I teach reading, I like to get the biggest bang for my buck, so in addition to Guided Reading time, where I teach small groups, I also have a reading time dedicated to one book a week. A time, where we read, and re-read a book and take a closer look at the book each day.  This is an easy way to hit many Reading standards, build fluency and practice decoding as well.  Throughout the year, I choose books that best fit my students' interests, levels and our theme for the week.  I have created several reading units this year and one of my students' favorite books was Mrs. Wishy Washy's Farm.  They absolutely loved this book, as well as our activities.

So I thought I'd make this unit available to you. You can click the picture below to download a weeks worth of lessons for this adorable book. To read more about Shared Reading in my room, click here.


  1. This looks darling. Thanks for sharing. The word lessons doesn't need an apostrophe.

  2. I love this! I think shared reading is one of the most important parts of the school day. I think this could really help a lot of people really understand what shared reading is.
    Thanks for sharing, it's also pretty cute!
