This weekly lesson plan goes along with the common core curriculum map for 2nd grade: Hand-Me-Down-Tales From Around The World. It is the FOURTH week in my Hand-Me-Down-Tales Unit.
In this weekly lesson plan, students will read the original version of Peter and the Wolf by Sergei Prokofiev. They will analyze the story to find the setting, characters, and problem/solution. They will also use sentence strips to order the events in the story. Students will use character trait words to describe the characters in the story. They will identify the musical instruments that Prokofiev used in Peter and the Wolf. The students will listen/watch an animated musical of Peter and the Wolf. They will compare/contrast the animated version to the original version of Peter and the Wolf. Students will watch a ballet of Peter and the Wolf. At the end of the week, they will participate in a group writing assignment and take a test on the original Peter and the Wolf story.
By the end of the week, they are able to:
explain the narrative elements in a story.
use character trait words to describe characters in a story.
sequence the events in a story.
compare and contrast different versions of a story.
write a new ending to the Peter and the Wolf story.
