    Crocodiles, geckos, newts, iguanas, skinks and polliwogs will all do perfectly well. Shared writing enables teachers to make the writing process concrete and visible to students. Goals 1 and 2 Conversation Cues: Continue to encourage productive and equitable conversation using Goals 1 and 2 Conversation Cues, which are questions teachers can ask students to help achieve four goals: Goal 1 encourage all students to talk and be understood; Goal 2 listen carefully to one another and seek to understand; Goal 3 deepen thinking; and Goal 4 think with others to expand the conversation adapted from Michaels, Sarah and O'Connor, Cathy. The concept of sequence in narratives might still be challenging for some students. An effective narrative has a beginning that establishes the character and situation, a middle that introduces a problem with character response, and an ending that resolves the problem.

    They will revisit these questions in Unit 2 when they study informational writing about frogs. All titles are listed with page numbers in the table of contents. The reader will encounter poems written in first, second and third-person limited point of view. This conversation allows students to develop the habits of mind and character they need to approach other complex texts and to develop their own academic writing skills. They focus on the components of narrative writing: a beginning that establishes the character and situation, a middle that introduces a problem and the characters' response to the problem, and an ending that resolves the problem.

    Author's Purpose The author's purpose for this text was to create poems about amphibians and reptiles that integrated art and humor while also providing factual information. In the second half of the unit, students will apply what they have learned about narrative writing to plan and draft their own pourquoi stories. Illustrations are a mixture of watercolors and collage. Study how collage is used to make the illustrations.

The module concludes with a performance task at the end of Unit 3 to synthesize their understanding of what they accomplished through supported, standards-based writing.

They're simply too delicious to pass up. Structure This text is a compilation of poems that all fall under the topic of reptiles and amphibians. Does this poem have a setting or a resolution? Second Edition. We do not store files, because it is prohibited.

The author does a wonderful job of getting this message across. Reviewing Learning Targets 5 minutes 2. Multiple Means of Engagement MME : Students who may have needed additional support with reading and writing in the past may lack engagement during this unit. Additionally, in some poems, the author takes the role of an and polliwogs book looking in on the animal he is describing.

Explain that just frogs the pictures, narratives need to have an order. Investigate the nature of art and discuss responses to artworks. See each Language Dive for suggested categories. It also indicates which lessons include the mid-unit and end-of-unit assessments. I loved to look at the painted pictures of the animals.

During the shared reading, students will have a deeper understanding of the structure and will be more likely to participate.

Content Connections This module is designed to address English Language Arts standards and to be taught during the literacy block. The illustrations are unique, but not my style.

Students continue to 'collect' characteristics of this aspect on a Working to Contribute to a Better World anchor chart. Then they participate in a teacher-led close read of the poem.

The poetry is a mix of humor with important facts about certain characteristics of animals portrayed in the book. Consider that YouTube, social media video sites, and other website links may incorporate inappropriate content via comment banks and ads. Some students may have ties to or experience with South America, the origin of several frogs considered during the module.

Take time to draw out students' prior experiences and associations with frogs. Shared writing is also a powerful way to model and guide key skills and concepts related to the writing process e.
