Lesson: 3: Changes in Character
Students will be able to use evidence from the text to describe how a character changes throughout a story.
(I) will begin reading aloud Hi New Baby! by Robie H. Harris. As I read, I will use clues in the text to determine how the little girl feels about her baby brother, stopping after page 6. I will list these clues in the box labeled “Beginning” on the Independent Practice worksheet. (Independent Practice worksheet is provided.) I will explain that often times something will happen in a story that changes the way the character feels.
(We) will continue reading Hi New Baby! using clues in the text to determine how the little girl feels in the story stopping after page 18. We will write a new list of clues in the box labeled “Middle” on the Independent Practice worksheet and discuss if this is similar or different than how she felt at the beginning of the story. What happens in the story and does it change the way the little girl feels? How do we know?
(You) will finish listening to Hi New Baby! and use clues from the text to determine how the little girl feels at the end of the story. You will write descriptive clues into the box labeled “End” on the Independent Practice worksheet. You will explain if this is similar or different to how she felt during the first half of the story and how you know her feelings changed.
