Hook TW introduce the story briefly and show the following clip. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bew2q0JOyQ4 Also, at some point I would also show the following two clips so they have more background, but haven’t decided if I should show it before they start reading, or afterward. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skocUzic4Ls https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDznVCEpMhg Individual Work (thinking of putting them in pairs for this). TSW will read selections from Number the Stars noting the genre, theme, setting, characters and topic. What is the setting for the story? How do you know? Who is the main character? Describe her qualities? What is the mood of the story? What are you thinking as you read this story? What is the climax of the story? What is the denouement? How different is Annemarie’s life from yours? TSW write a paragraph or two summarizing each chapter they read. Closer On a 3x5 card, write two things you are grateful for that you have that Annemarie did not have. Vocabulary Vocabulary Wednesday Thursday TBD. I plan on reading the book for vocabulary this weekend.
