The illustrated children's story I chose is one available on the Web for free at URL: http://www.magickeys.com/books/patrick/index.html.

This is a story about Patrick, who rescues an elf from his cat. The elf grants him a wish. Patrick, who hates homework, wishes for the elf to do his homework for the next 35 days, until school is out for the summer. The elf agrees, but there is one catch - the elf does not understand human stuff, so he asks Patrick to help him and show him how - in every subject. So Patrick ends up doing his homework himself, and passing the term with high marks thanks to that crafty little elf.

The grade level for this story, told in rhyme, is first grade all the way up to fifth grade. Any elementary school-aged child can benefit from this story and activity. What children will do is create their very own homework elf, to "help" them get their homework done.

Materials needed:
old fashioned wooden clothespins, found at craft stores and sometimes dollar stores
permanent markers, fine sharpies work well, in black and red
fabric scraps, bits of ...

Teaching: Unit Plan

See the attached file.

Using literature in the classroom is a powerful tool for helping to meet your students' developmental needs. In this task you are to develop a week-long unit lesson plan. Your unit will need to include the following components:
- A paragraph introducing your theme or concept for the entire week.
- A rationale for your unit that clearly describes the stage of development the students you will be teaching are in.
- A paragraph describing the work of a theorist whose beliefs help to support the use of this unit within this stage of development.

Create five different lesson plans that relate to the chosen theme/concept of your unit. Remember to use the lesson plan template for creating your lessons. Explain how the objectives for your lessons measure concepts such as phonemic awareness, alphabetic principle, character, setting, plot and theme. Identify and discuss a different genre of literature for each lesson plan (poetry, nursery rhymes, tactile books multicultural books, picture books, non-fiction books, series books, etc.).

I know that you can not do the work, but I was hoping that you could help me with some of the areas. These are the areas I need help with.
- A paragraph introducing your theme or concept for the entire week.
- A rationale for your unit that clearly describes the stage of development the students you will be teaching are in.
- A paragraph describing the work of a theorist whose beliefs help to support the use of this unit within this stage of development.
