"The Very Cranky Bear" Australian Curriculum - English Year 2 Sequence

Our Year 2 teacher, Carlene Thorpe, has developed a learning sequence using The Australian Curriculum - English content descriptions. You can access The Australian Curriculum by clicking this link:
This sequence was developed using the picture book The Very Cranky Bear by Nick Bland.
Click HERE to download/view the teacher's lesson plan.When you click the link it will open in Google Docs. When that screen opens, click on FILE and then DOWNLOAD. 
Please note this is a two page sequence of learning.

 If you would like a copy of the reflection grid we use with the Year 2 class please download by clicking the photo below. The reflections grid is an individual reflection tool that students use throughout the learning sequence to indicate their level of understanding. Each student has a photo of themselves and it is velcroed to the grid and moved along as student understandings increase. "What?" meaning - What is the teacher on about? I have no idea! "A Little" meaning - I know a little bit about what we are learning.  "A lot" meaning - I understand the learning goal now!  There is space for the children to write notes.
