If you have the short story “The All American Slurp” by Lensey Namiokain in your anthology, this lesson is for you!
This short story lesson includes worksheets, PowerPoint, vocabulary quiz, and lesson plan. All are editable.
I have included an EATS lesson plan with an Essential Question, preview vocabulary, activating strategy, teaching strategies, and a summarizing strategy (Exit Ticket). The exit tickets are printable.
The lesson focuses on theme. A sample answer to the essential question is provided so students will understand the concept- and have a model when they begin responding.
The lesson also touches on onomatopoeia.
The lesson plan and worksheets are a valuable time-saver. Just print and go! Answer key is included.
This resource also includes directions to use the PALS reading strategy and a PALS worksheet. I LOVE using PALS so that every student is responsible to read and comprehend. “The All American Slurp” by Lensey Namiokain is a great short story to use with PALS!
