                          The Wolf Who Cried Boy- Read Aloud
Name: Kara Mize

Population: First Grade

Subject/ Content Area: Language Arts- listening and responding to a read aloud

Time: Approximately 50 minutes

Materials: Book- The Wolf Who Cried Boy, story by Bob Hartman and pictures by Tim Raglin
           Board/chart paper, paper for the children, writing utensils

Objective: The students will respond to the story by writing a description about a food that they
      dislike using complete sentences. They will also draw a picture to represent their

Rationale: TEKS- Language arts in 1st grade-
       (b-13) Reading/literary response. The student responds to various texts. The student is
       expected to: (C) respond through talk, art, and writing to a variety of stories and poems
       in ways that reflect understanding and interpretation (K-1);
       (b-17) Writing/penmanship/capitalization/punctuation. The student develops the
       foundations of writing. The student is expected to: (G) use basic capitalization and
       punctuation such as capitalizing names and first letters in sentences, using periods,
       question marks, and exclamation points (1-2).

Focus: I will ask the children to tell me about the book that they read the day before, The Boy
      Who Cried Wolf. I will ask them what happened and if they think that it was okay for the
      boy to lie. Based on what they tell me, I will ask them if they think they can predict what
      will happen in this story. I will show them the book and read them the title. Hopefully,
      the children will say that the wolf will lie about seeing a boy.

Procedures: The teacher will discuss how lying feels and how the boy felt at the end of the The
      Boy Who Cried Wolf. Then, the teacher will enthusiastically read the story, The Wolf
      Who Cried Boy. The teacher and students will discuss the book and the actions the wolf
      did in the story. Next, the teacher and students will write ways to make the food taste
      better. Finally, the students will attempt this on their own with foods that they dislike and
      present it to the class.

Checking for Understanding: The teacher will ask: “Why did the wolf lie to his parents about
      seeing a boy?” The students will raise their hands and respond to the question. The
      students should explain that he did not like the food he wanted to eat and wanted boy
      instead. I will ask them what they think about his actions- if they approve/disapprove
      (leading them to conclude that it was wrong of him to lie.)

Guided Practice: The teacher will say, “Instead of whining and lying, the wolf could have just
      talked to his parents about the food he disliked and offered suggestions on how to make
      the food better.” Teacher will ask the students to take turns naming some of the foods
      that the wolf did not like, and the teacher will write the responses on the board/chart
      paper. The teacher and students will discuss the reasons why he did not like the various
      foods- bad taste/smell; looks nasty; eats it too often. Then, the teacher will ask for one
      way that they could make the food better- adding something to it, changing the
      appearance, not eating as often, etc.

       Modeling: The teacher will use the students’ prompts to write complete sentences on the
       board/paper describing why the boy dislikes the food mentioned in the story. The teacher
       will also write one sentence

Independent Practice: The students will then write about a food that they dislike. In at least
      four sentences, the students will name a food that they dislike, explain why they do not
      like it, and offer a way to make it better. Then, they can draw a picture representing their

Closure: To end the lesson, the teacher will call on a few students to read their papers and share
      their pictures with the class. The teacher will end by reminding them what happened to
      both the boy and the wolf because of their lies. The teacher will tell them to talk to
      people instead of lying to them.
