Description:

This Colin McNaughton collection includes Oomph!, Oops, and Preston’s Goal! These are fractured fairy tales, and each is compared to Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. With all three, character and plot analysis are key skills. Students also learn wonderful vocabulary through McNaughton’s word choice.

HOW TEACHERS CAN USE THESE UNITS:

My units use a before/during/after approach, so before reading, students experience a schema building activity, vocabulary introduction, and focus skill modeling. During reading, students use a graphic organizer or foldable to record book information and interpretation, and post reading includes questioning and written response.
