Product Description
This is a great lesson on character traits to teach along with the story, "The Spider and the Beehive" a retelling by Kama Einhorn. It opens with a title page, along with the daily objectives and why these skills are important. Students are then introduced to this lesson by a reading of the poem "One Inch Tall" by Shel Silverstein (included in powerpoint). Then students are asked about character traits, and shown what it is, along with some examples. Next is a fun personality trait game to do with your class (all you need are notecards). Then students are given the vocabulary words for the story, and are shown a slide for each, along with the definition and pictures. Then the teacher distributes the student copies of the story or if you don't have student copies, just read to the the class. The slides ask the students questions, page by page, to keep them engaged in the story. After reading the story, the "Story Pyramid" is introduced, and students must apply what they've learned in the story to fill in the pyramid. Students are then invited to find their favorite statement made by one of the characters in the story and read aloud. The next slide allows for review of character traits. The final slides are for exploration and extension, in which students learn some neat facts about spiders and other arachnids. Following the lesson, administer the test included on the vocabulary terms along with a new story in which students are asked questions assessing their knowledge of identifying character traits (for younger grades, teacher may want to administer the test orally) My students absolutely loved this story and lesson!
