Getting Ready to Launch a Short Fiction Unit of Study

One of the many books I’m going to use as a touchstone text is Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity by Mo Willems. Why? My kids simply loved it! (Not to mention the fact that the character is well-developed and that there’s a clear problem & solution!)

Some other titles I’m thinking of using are…

    I love reading Polacco and so do my students, but I don’t like using her books for a short fiction unit since her books are rather wordy. Would it be helpful for me to make a list of touchstone texts I’m using for this unit and send it to you? LMK… I’m happy to do it (or to post it).

    All the best,
    Stacey

  2. OH THANK YOU!
    I am going to start our Fiction Unit VERY soon. Next week to be exact. I wasn’t sure what text to use besides Patricia Polacco. Knuffle Bunny would be GREAT! I would love to hear more of what you are doing with your unit.
