  • Segment 1: students will synthesize a fable to discover key details and find a central message.
  • Segment 2: students will determine the main events of a fable and analyze a character. In addition, students will create a graphic novel to show their understanding of main events and sequential order.

These lessons can be taught over the span of a half day or you can use the lessons independently, broken up over several days.

Math:

This half day of lesson plans is broken down into 3 separate segments (30-60 minutes each) addressing Numbers and Operations in Base Ten: place value understanding of multi-digit whole numbers and decimals to the thousandths place. Students will learn key place value vocabulary, take helpful notes for reference, complete independent practice of concepts and play a game to reinforce the concept of 10x the value and 1/10 the value.
