  • TW ask Ss why Sophie feels angry.
  • SW TPS about why Sophie feels angry.
  • SW TPS about a time when they have felt angry.
  • TW select 2-3 scholars to share out.
  • Scholars, you are feeling experts! Now you are going to spend some time by yourself thinking about the character of Trixie in the story Knuffle Bunny. I want you to focus on the way Trixie feels when she realizes she has lost her bunny. You will have the chance to draw a picture of the way Trixie feels.

  • SW return to their desks and draw a picture of Trixie and the way she feels when she realizes she has lost KB.
  • TW circulate and SW explain what they drew/the feeling to T.

7) Cumulative Review

 

T should ask Ss to identify how characters are feeling in various books (read-alouds, guided reading etc.)

8) Homework

 

Photocopy a page or two from a book that depicts a character feeling. Have scholars write what the character feeling is and how they know.

 

9) Exit Slip / Final Assessment of FIRM MASTERY of the Aim:  1-5 minutes

SW ID character feeling from Knuffle Bunny.  

Lesson Reflection

What went well?

 

Scholars were successful because they knew character feeling words from other books, lessons.  

 

 

What would you change?

 

Depending upon where your class is maybe take time to brainstorm character words together.

What needs explanation?

 

Emphasize importance of explaining how you know a character is feeling that way by having scholars using picture and text clues.
