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 THIRD week in my Hand-Me-Down-Tales Unit.
In this weekly lesson plan, students will be reading two different versions of Stone Soup. They will begin the week, analyzing Ann McGovern's version. They will read the book and answer questions related to the text. They will also use the text to correctly sequence the events. On the third day, they will listen and discuss Jon Muth's version of Stone Soup. The students will compare and contrast the two versions of Stone Soup read in class. At the end of the week, they will write a sequel to Stone Soup as their culminating activity.
By the end of the week, they are able to:
answer questions related to a text.
locate transition words in a text.
use transition words to order the sequence of events in a story.
compare and contrast two versions of the same story.
write a sequel to a story.

The lesson plan contains the following:
+Common Core Standards
+I can statements
+Technology Links- including video links
+Detailed plans for the week
+1 student response booklet template to copy for each student - the booklet is formatted to be printed front and back so that when you fold it all the pages line up. You don't have to print it as a book. You could copy it and cut the pages so that the students can paste them into their reading journals.
The Common Core Standards addressed are:
RL.2.2: Recount stories, including fables and folktales from diverse cultures, and determine their central message, lesson, or moral.
RI.2.7: Explain how specific images (e.g., a diagram showing how a machine works) contribute to and clarify a text.
W.2.3: Write narratives in which they recount a well-elaborated event or short sequence of events, include details to describe action, thoughts, and feelings, use temporal words to signal event order, and provide a sense of closure.
