Comprehension Skill: Story MappingVocabulary: swap, twitches, glance
This week we were reading stories about pets! This was a fun one to read aloud. The kids could really connect to having a pet and many could connect to having a goldfish. This is a great time to talk about taking care of the classroom pet.
After reading the story discuss as a class the story parts. Who are the characters? Norman and the boy. The boy does not have a name in the book so let the kids make up a name. Setting: this story has many different settings. Problem/Solution: The boy didn't like his pet fish, Norman. The boy then learned to love his pet.
After discussing it orally let the students fill out a flip booklet on Character/Setting/Problem/Solution.
For our intervention math groups the students did one of the following math activities for finding partners for the numbers 5-10.
Approaching - included a "Food Bowl" with answers.
On-level - answer box was removed.
Beyond - writing a number story was added to the bottom of each sheet.
