I used this lesson to teach key ideas and details for the common core standard R.L. 3.3 or 4.3, Craft and Structure for the common core standard R.L. 3.4 or 4.4 and Foundational Skills for the common core standard R.F.3.3 or 4.3. This lesson includes the 5 syllable patterns and a pattern for the flipbook to guide students in decoding unknown words. To aide comprehension, students use thinking maps: brace and circle maps.
