Hello I have been asked to do an exciting lesson with a class of 26 Year R children.
Display the title page of The Ugly Duckling interactive story. As you display the cover of the story say: This is the story of "The Speedy Worm. This is the story of "The Angry Goldfish! Ask the students to explain how they knew the story was about "The Ugly Duckling. Review that the illustrations and the words in a book go together to tell a story.
Ask students, "How can you tell what a story is about before you read the book? Explain that the artist who draws the pictures can also be called the illustrator.
Explain that pictures can also be called illustrations. Open the interactive story to the first illustration. Invite the students to describe what they see on the page.
Read the text on the page and then proceed to the next page.
Continue this process while calling on different students to describe the illustrations and then predict what the text will say.
Mute or pause the narration as the students contribute. Pair students up with a partner who speaks the same home language to describe what they see on each page. Give every student the Ugly Duckling story cards sheet.
Explain that the pictures are all mixed up. Tell your students to think about the words that you read and point to the pictures that match your words.
Read the story aloud, pausing after each main event. Watch to ensure that your students put their fingers on the correct pictures as you read. Provide students with a graphic organizer that is numbered Re-read the beginning of the story and ask students to place the image that matches the words you read into the number one box in their graphic organizer.
Repeat with the remaining two images for numbers two and three. Pass out the next set of images and repeat process for boxes four-nine. Re-read the beginning, middle, and ending again and pause after each section to ensure student understanding.
Independent working time 15 minutes The students will use the Ugly Duckling sequencing boxes to match illustrations with corresponding text. Have them cut out the Ugly Duckling story cards sheet and glue them into the boxes with the correct text.
Explain that the numbers in the text boxes will help them put the illustrations in order. Model how to do the first one. Remind your students to lay all of the illustrations out in their text boxes before gluing. This will help them avoid frustration if they get one or two out of order.
Walk around the room and observe the students. Offer support when needed. Ask students to place each card in the matching text box and to wait before gluing their cards to the paper.
Students who finish their sequencing assignment early may color the pictures. Students in need of a greater challenge may write and illustrate their own short story instead of coloring.
Give simple clues to help struggling students figure out which illustrations go where.
If needed, pull these students aside for another short reading of The Ugly Duckling. Assessment 5 minutes Call on every student during the reading of the story. Each student should be asked to describe something in the illustrations.
Assess how well students describe the characters and action in the story. If a student focuses on the wrong details, such as the color of the sun, prompt the student to describe what is happening in the illustration.Early Excellence is the leading Provider of Early Years Resources, Furniture and Training in the UK.
