If you have the short story “Ta-Na-E-Ka” by Mary Whitebird in your anthology, this lesson is for you!
✓ This resource includes the Powerpoint, two- day lesson plan, and several worksheets.
Created to be fully useful, this is a straightforward lesson plan with worksheets that I have found to be very successful with "Ta-Na-E-Ka," a short story on traditions.
I use this at the beginning of the year when teaching the plot mountain.
✓ I have included
2 EATS lesson plan with an Essential Question, preview vocabulary, activating strategy, teaching strategies and a summarizing strategy (Exit Ticket).
4 worksheets- Just print and go!
An extra (optional) worksheet for differentiated instruction.
The lesson has a sample answer to the Essential Question, which I have found to be EXTREMELY helpful for students to see before they are expected to write. The sample is on "The Three Little Pigs." A link to the story is provided if you want to read the story to your students.
I have also included the lesson plan, worksheet and sample for PALS reading- as I've found this to be an effective strategy.
External and Internal conflict are discussed.
This product turns the short story in your book into an interactive lesson.
