PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Louisiana Learning Log for Lapin Plays Possum ELA Guidebook Unit:

Throughout this unit students will build knowledge about folktales and Louisiana geography and culture. Students will progressively build knowledge using the following tools throughout the unit.

Included:


1. Cajun Expressions (1 page): Student record memorable expressions from the texts of the unit and include their interpretations of the meaning (including the literal and figurative meanings when appropriate) and why they chose those expressions.

2. Tricky Vocabulary (3 pages): Students learn new vocabulary words in context, including words that are specific to Louisiana geography and culture. Students determine the meaning of the words, identify any real-life connections or relationships between words, and illustrate their meanings or use in the texts. Students focus on three types of words: (1) words and/or phrases that make the story seem more like spoken English rather than formal, written English; (2) unknown words with strong effects; (3) words with Louisiana connections.

3. Lapin Literacy (2 pages): While the main character in many of the folktales of the unit goes by a different name in the different texts (i.e., Lapin, Brer Rabbit, Peter Rabbit, etc.), the characters in each text possess similar characteristics. Students trace the thoughts, motivations, and actions of the main rabbit characters throughout the various texts and record the information onto a character analysis organizer and a text comparison H-Chart.

4. C-E-R (Claim-Evidence-Reasoning) Writing Organizers (2 pages): Students write in response to text daily. This section of the Louisiana Learning Log is a place for students to practice their writing in response to various texts, including responding to short-answer questions and writing prompts.
