Main Curriculum Tie:
Background For Teachers:
Be able to explain to our students when do we use inflectional endings, such as, s, ed, ing.
Be able to explain what a “moral” is.
Explain any unfamiliar vocabulary in the story.
Student Prior Knowledge:
Intended Learning Outcomes:
Students will recognize the most frequently occurring inflections, and affixes as a clue to the meaning of unknown words.
Review inflectional endings like, ing, ed, s and why we use them. Give a few examples for each ending. 3 min.
Introduce the book and have students make predictions about what they think will happen in the story. Then let students know that as we read we are going to be listening for the moral we learn from the story. We can also listen for words that have endings like –ed, -ing, and –s.
As you read the story make sure you think aloud about what is happening in the beginning, middle and end of the story as well as the inflectional endings that come up. Stop periodically to have students share what they notice/hear as well.
After reading have students share what they think is the moral of the story. Guide the discussion and if students don’t come up with the moral of the story on their own help lead them towards it (even though things seem bad it can still turn out ok).
Remind students that throughout this book we saw and heard lots of words with inflectional endings like ed, s, ing. Now I am going to tell you two sentences one that uses an ending correctly and one that doesn’t. You need to listen carefully and tell me which sentence is correct. (Do this 3 times – one pair of sentences for each ending.)
For assessment you can also give students a copy of the attached sheet with sentences containing inflectional endings. Students would listen to the sentences and then circle the words that have an inflectional ending in them.
