Language Arts Lesson - "The Fenway Foul-Up Literature Unit"

by Bethany Baptiste
3th-5th grade

It's baseball season!

The Fenway Foul-Up Literacy Unit is sure to be a hit with your students. 
Practice comprehension skills while reading through this baseball mystery.

I was lucky enough to work with the author, David A. Kelly, 
while creating this 2-3 week unit. Here's what he says about it:

"This is a really impressive set of exercises for the book The Fenway Foul-Up. They're unique, interesting, and inventive and provide great support for material in the book. Bethany has done a great job extending the baseball ideas and concepts from the book into the classroom, and provided plenty of ways to hook students into making real classroom connections. I was especially impressed by the professionalism and thoroughness of the materials." ~ David A. Kelly

This comprehensive unit provides you with: 
  • a building background knowledge worksheet 
  • vocabulary practice, and comprehension questions, and a comprehension focus skill worksheet for each of the 9 chapters
  • reflective journal prompts for each of the 9 chapters
  • figurative language practice worksheet
  • 2 vocabulary practice worksheets
I hope this unit is a knock out of the park with your students! (Go Red Sox!!)
