This is the third part of the story that I began at the beginning of January with my first and second graders (part 1; part 2). The first week, we introduced characters and described them. Last week, we discussed a problem that Character 1 (tall) helped Character 2 (short) to solve.
In today’s story, Character 3 is fast and Character 4 is slow.
Words on the board to help with comprehension:
- Traer-to bring
The rest of the new/unfamiliar words I could either model or show them the actual object to establish meaning.
Then I told the story:
4 is slow. 4 needs to bring a book to Mr. Fernandez, but 4 doesn’t have time. He asks 3 for help. 3 is fast.
“I need help! I am slow and I have a book for Señor Fernandez. Sr. F. needs the book in 2 seconds!
“No problem.” 3 helps 4. 3 brings the book to Sr. F.
Sr. F. has the book. Sr. F is happy. 3 is happy. 4 is happy
