Good morning everyone!
I am joining my friend Carla from Comprehension Connection today for her mentor text linky this month!
I know that St. Patty’s was yesterday and I am late to the leprechaun parade. However, I have a great lesson that I developed using the book “The Luckiest Leprechaun” by Justine Korman. This tale is a great story of trust, loyalty, and friendship.
Teaching the lesson or central message of a story, is usually a challenging strategy for firsties to master for many reasons:
- They need to identify the key details in the story that lead to the central message.
- In most cases, the lesson or central message of a story is not stated in the story and our students have to infer it.
- Some stories may have more than one central message, and in my own experience, our students may be confused by this. Therefore, we have to teach them the art of interpretation.
I hope you have enjoyed my blog post and you find it informative and useful! The lats word on my post in lawnmower.
