PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Short on Time?

This pack was created a resource for the busy teacher. It contains mini lessons for one week of reading instruction. All the lessons surround one picture book, Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters by John Steptoe.

Although the lessons may touch on other standards, they mainly focus on the third grade standard, CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.3.3-Describe characters in a story (e.g., their traits, motivations, or feelings) and explain how their actions contribute to the sequence of events. However, students should have some experience with character traits before this lesson- it is not an introductory unit. It is encourages a deeper look at the standard.

All teachers will need to do is prepare the enclosed materials and find a copy of the text.

This pack includes:

Five Days of Explicit Mini Lessons- All lessons include an Essential Question, Hook, Teaching Point, and Summary. Higher order thinking questions are included in some of the lessons. Please note that due to the length of the text, one mini lesson will stretch over two days. The focus of the lessons are:
• Day One- Reading for Vocabulary
• Day Two and Three- Describing a character through actions, thoughts, feelings, and character traits
• Day Four- Sequencing the plot and determining the best character traits for the main character
• Day Five- Creating a line graph of the main characters traits over the course of the events of the story.

One Projectable Anchor Chart- The anchor chart can be projected on the Smart Board and written on or used as a reference for creating a paper anchor chart. Photographs of anchor charts are included.

Story Event Cards- Cards for sequencing the story.

Sentence Frames- A page of sentence frames to help organize the student’s thinking. This is perfect for students with accommodations for ESOL, SLP, or SLD.

Graphic Organizer for Students to Apply Skill in Their Own Text- A printable copy of the anchor chart is included for students to apply this standard in their own reading.

Assessment- One page story with multiple choice and open answer questions. There are 4 total questions. The text is written at an approximate mid third grade level. An answer key is included.

Happy Learning!
