Summary: This is a story about a lonely man who

wants to get a cat to keep him company, so he goes to the shelter to find one. Mr. Putter got a yellow cat that he named Tabby. Mr. Putter and Tabby did everything together including eating breakfast, drinking tea, working in the garden, and many other activities.

such as beginning, middle, and end so that the reader will comprehend how a story is introduced and how the plot is resolved.

What is the story really about? The author wants the reads to understand a friendship between a man and his pet. Teaching Language I wonder I noticed Today I will help you identify aspects of text structure such as beginning, middle, and end so that you will comprehend how a story is introduced and how the plot is resolved.

Conversation Before (Book introduction setting students up to understand the teaching points) Have you ever been alone and wished you had someone there with you?

Lets look at the title and see if we can predict what might happen in the story?

During (2-3 places to stop connected with the strategic actions chosen as teaching points)

p. 42 What does the beginning of the story say about Mr. Putter? p. 47 Why do you think the pet store only has kittens and not older cats? p. 51 What did Mr. Putter do in the middle of the story? p. 58 How did the story end?

p. 45 I wonder if a cat will help Mr. Putter not be so lonely? p. 48 I wonder what kind of animals they will have at the shelter? p. 54 I noticed Mr. Putter seems much happier now.

After (Reinforcing the teaching points)

How do you use the clues in the text to decide what is the beginning, middle, and end of the story?

Today we read about a man who is lonely in the beginning, gets a new companion in the middle, and lives a happy life with his new companion in the end. Think about beginning, middle, and end when you are reading this story.

Evidence of Understanding: During the reading I will make sure the students understand the beginning, middle, and end. After the reading I will reinforce the beginning, middle, and end with the students.

GUIDED READING

Above Level Group Book Title: Pal The Pony Written By R.A. Herman, Published by Penguin Young Readers Genre: Realistic Fiction Level: O Summary of the Story: This is a story that talks about a little Pony named Pal. Pal wants to pull wagons and work like the other big horses but he is still to small. Pal is the smallest one of the ranch but becomes a star among children wanting pony rides. Theme or Authors Message: You might not be big enough to do every job you would like, but there is always a job that is perfect for everyone.

Common Core Standard: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.2.10 By the end of the year, read and comprehend literature, including stories and poetry, in the grades 23 text complexity band proficiently, with scaffolding as needed at the high end of the range. Teaching for Strategic Action: Summarizing What happens in the story Infer Discuss the characters feelings Prereading: Have you every been to a ranch? Have you ever been on a pony ride? Have you ever seen big horses working out in the fields? What are some jobs a big horse might be good at doing? What are some jobs a pony might be good at doing? Have you ever felt sad because you were too small to do something? Reading the Text: Think about what you know so far? What has happened? How is the pony feeling in the beginning of the story? What made you think that? How does the pony feel at the end of the story? How do you know? Responding/Discussing the Meaning: Talk about why the Pony is sad in the beginning of the story. Why do you think he wants to work with the big horses? How did his feelings change at the end of the story? Do the illustrations give you clues to how he is feeling in the story? Revisiting Strategic Action: After Pal tries to pull the cart on page 15 how do you think he feels? Do you think Pal feels the same way on page 20 when he is to small to do the rodeo? On page 32 is Pal still feeling sad? Word Work: Take apart and recognize words with contractions. I will have the students use their guided reading books to look for contractions and then write the contraction on a white board and the two words that make up that contraction. (example page 20 has the word Im the student will write Im on the white board and then I am under it to signify the two words that make up the contraction).

Is there someone in your life that you are always there to help? Do you think when you help someone it shows them you care? What are some ways you can help your fellow classmates? Reading the Text: Think about what you know so far? What has happened? How is the bunny feeling? What made you think that? How does the mother feel? How do you know? Responding/Discussing the Meaning: Talk about the whole story. Why did bunny want to run away? Why do you think mother said she would follow bunny anywhere he went? Do you think bunny still wanted to run away at the end of the story? Exploring/Teaching for Processing Strategies: On page 14 the bunny says he will become a bird and fly away from his mother, why on page 15 does the mother say she will become a tree so the bird can fly home to her? On page 20 why does the bunny say he might as well just stay home and be the little bunny? Word Work: Take apart words with a variety of endings. The students will look through the book and find words that end in ing ed or est and then they will write these words on individual white boards.

BELOW LEVEL GROUP Book Title: A Zoo Party Genre: Fantasy Level: H Summary of the Story: A young boy wants to have a party at the zoo inviting all the animals, until he realizes he might be what is on the menu. Theme or Authors Message: Sometimes an idea might seem great at first, but then the more you think about it that idea might not be as great as you thought.

Common Core Standard: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.2.10 By the end of the year, read and comprehend literature, including stories and poetry, in the grades 23 text complexity band proficiently, with scaffolding as needed at the high end of the range. Teaching for Strategic Action: Summarizing What happens in the story Infer How did the main character feel at the beginning of the story, and at the end of the story Prereading: Have you ever wanted to have a party? Have you ever wanted to sit down and eat with a zoo animal? If you could have a party with zoo animals which animals would you invite? Which animals would you not invite? Before reading I would have the students name as many zoo animals as they could, and ask if they thought that animal ate meat or plants. Reading the Text: Think about what you know so far? What has happened? How is the boy feeling in the beginning of the story? What made you think that? How does the boy feel at the end of the story? How do you know? Responding/Discussing the Meaning: Talk about why the boy thought he might enjoy having a party at the zoo with the animals? Then discuss if he still thought have a party at the end of the story was such a good idea. What details did the story give about why he thought a zoo animal party might not be a good idea. Revisiting Strategic Action: How do you think the boy felt about having a zoo party on page 8? On page 12 why does the boy ask what they would have to eat at the party? The boy on page 14 says, To give the zoo a party and find I was the feast! How does he feel about having the party for the zoo animals now? Word Work: Take apart words with consonant clusters at the beginning (both blends and digraphs) I would have the students look through the book and find words that start with a blend or digraph (Examples: p.4 the, chimpanzee; p. 7 snail; p. 12 what, etc.) Reference: Continuum of Literacy Learning Appendix D and Prompting for Successful Comprehensions Appendix C

Description of Lesson

The students will practice short vowels by playing a game. The game will consist of a homemade game board, playing pieces, and homemade dice. The game board will have a variety of different words containing long and short vowels along a path (similar to candy land). The dice will have short a, short e, short i, short o, and short u on the sides. One player will roll the dice, and then move that game piece to the next word that contains that short vowel sound. The students will have to say the words along the path and problem solve to find the spot they are to go to next. The game ends when one person crosses the finish line. This will be an informal assessment that also allows the students to assess each other. The students will be able to collaborate and help each other find the next spot or if they have gone to the wrong spot.
