7. Put the students in groups to talk about/share what they think the story is about, based on the illustrations. Now turn to your desk partner and share what you wrote. Compare/contrast your story to your partner’s story. You can see how the perspective of your partner is different from yours. 8. Gather on the carpet, and read the story to the entire class. Ok class, the 5 minutes are up. You have five minutes to sit on the carpet with listening ears! (5...4 .... 3...2...1…) 9. Ask the students what surprised them and if their stories were similar to the actual text. Whose story was similar to the actual story? What was different about your story and the real story? (Students answer) continue sharing and asking each other for each page. 7. Go to the carpet and listen to the story reflecting on what they thought was going to happen in the story. The students will be silent on the carpet listening to the story. They will also need to be thinking about what they said for each page of the story and comparing it with their own thoughts. 8. Openly discuss what they thought was going to happen vs. what actually happen. Say what they were expecting vs. what happened. Students will raise their hand silently to share with the class what they thought what happened and what actually happened. They will continue this until the teacher dismisses them into their groups. 9. Go back to their original groups with their Venn Diagram and complete it with their thoughts v. what happened. Also include how what they thought and what happened was similar. Students will look over their worksheet and read all the directions before starting. They will then write down on their Venn Diagram what they thought, what happened in the story, and how what they thought and the story were alike. 10. Work diligently on their Venn Diagram without disturbing others. Students will continue working on the Venn Diagram silently and working hard to do their best on the worksheet. 11. Students will listen to the teacher as she explains the homework for this lesson and when the test is for the story and vocab words that they had just gone over that day. They will need to review the worksheet given to them when the y go home. life that is not very involved can struggle with the concept of studying at home. Homework is a hard thing for them, but with after school programs or determination the homework can be complete. If the student cannot find the will of studying at home the concepts were reviewed several times during the lesson and could prepare the student for the test the next day. Page 4 of 10
Now you are going to go back to your seats and complete a Venn diagram that compares your story to the actual story. 10. Put the students back in groups and have them create a Venn-diagram that compares their story to the actual story. I am going to show you an example on the board. In my story, the starfish has eyes and a smile. But in the real story, starfish do not have any facial features. In both stories, the starfish laid eggs.
