Lesson: 1: Predicting a Solution to a Problem
Students will be able to predict the solution to a problem using text evidence
(I) will explain that as we read, we should pay attention to clues in the story that tell us what the solution may be to the problem. I will begin reading Ruby’s Wish by Shirin Yim Bridges, stopping at the page before Chinese New Year. I will chart the problem and one possible prediction of the solution. I will model identifying clues from the story that led me to the prediction. (Example chart is provided.)
(We) will predict a second solution to the problem in the story and chart solution clues from the story for the prediction. (Example chart is provided.) We will finish reading Ruby’s Wish and discuss which prediction was accurate.
(You) will read “Casey Saves the Play” (story provided in the unit) and write a prediction about the solution to the problem in the story. You will give reasons for your prediction, based on clues given in the story.
