CCS 2 RL2: Ask and answer questions such as who, what where, where when, why and how to demonstrate understanding of key details in a text.
Objective: The students will be able to answer comprehension questions about the story.
Materials: Sammy’s Big Dream Book Read and Color Story Activity Book, sheet of white construction paper, stickers, crayons, pencils, writing paper (optional)
Motivation: Teachers will ask students if they remember the title of the story and names of the author and illustrator. Teacher will reread the story to the students and tell them that they will have to listen to the story carefully because they will be asked questions for understanding. If they get an answer correct, they will be given a sticker.
Instructions: Teacher reads story aloud to students. At the end of the story teacher will divide students into groups (numbers are up to the teacher). Teacher will model to students how they should answer the questions in a complete sentence.
Guided Practice: Teacher will give each group a question and have them discuss the question among themselves and come up with the answer in a complete answer. When each group is finished the teacher will ask each group their question and they will share out loud to the class as a group or someone can volunteer to be the spokesperson. Each member in the group with the correct answer will get a sticker.
Independent Practice: CCS 2W1: The students can draw their favorite part of the story. They can also write a sentence(s) explaining why that is their favorite part of the story.
Assessment: Did the students meet the objective? (Teacher observation)
