ending of the story. The story map is designed to increase the letter S awareness as well as creating the beginning, middle, and end of the story. 4. I will start out by tracing the giant letter S on my example story map to begin the group discussion. 5. We will then begin the working on the group Story Map. I will be asking the children what event happened at the beginning of the story. Using their answers, I will fill in the example story map. I will be asking critical thinking questions that require open-ended answers to get them to discuss the beginning of the story. 6. We will then proceed to the middle section of the map and ask open-ended questions to allow the students to answer with thoughtful consideration about what happened in the middle of the story. Using their answers, I will complete the middle of the story map. 7. Lastly, we will talk about the event that happened, in the book, to end the story. Recording their answers in the ending section of the map. 8. With answers that go in different spots, let them know that this event did occur in the story, but it happened in a different section of the chart. Remember your answer and we will fill that in when we get to that part. 9. At the end, if there is anything else that they recall, we can talk about those events and add it to the map. Differentiation I do not feel like this lesson plan requires any modifications. Assessment (Practice/ Checking for Understanding) 1. Have the students go back to their seats and inform them that they will be able to complete their own story map. 2. Each student will get a copy of the S Themed Story Map. 3. Show them that it is the same story map that we just completed, as a group, and have the example out for reference. 4. Remind them to trace the giant letter S. Explain to them that while they are using their pencil to trace the letter, emphasize the “S” sound, out loud, from the beginning of the s, all the way until they reach the end. “Remember that the s has a long “S” sound.” Ensuring their phonemic awareness of the sound. 5. Instruct them to have out their crayons or markers and complete each section, of the story map, by drawing a picture of what happened in the
Unit Plan 15 beginning, middle, and end of the story. Just like we did as a group, on my story map. 6. While the students are completing the assignment, walk around, observe, and offer help when needed. Closing After they have finished their story maps, I will invite the children back to the circle rug to share what they have drawn for each event. One by one, the children will each stand up and explain the events that occurred in the story. I will remind them to state that this event happened in the beginning, the middle, and the end of the story. This will ensure that they know that the story makes more sense when it is explained in the correct order. I will remind the children that next week, we will be talking about plants and as a fun surprise, they will be taking seeds and planting them for a class project. It will be very important
