LEARNING ACTIVITIES 1. Review Stega Nona with students. Questions What do you recall about Strega Nona? for What do you recall about Big Anthony? Students What other characters do you recall from the story? What is Strega Nona’s town like? What connections did you make while you were reading yesterday? Strategy An explanation of text connections can be found in Strategies That Work by Stephanie Harvey. In general, readers are reminded of something as they read (text to self, text to text, text to world). 2. Discuss how the five senses help to visualize a story. Introduce the “Visualizing Context” graphic organizer. Model how to complete it during reading. Questions What could you “see, hear, taste, touch, smell” while you were reading yesterday? for What are some messages you would want to portray in a radio announcement? Students What are some good things about Strega Nona’s community? What are the main points you would want people to know about Strega Nona’s community? 3. Distribute the “Visualizing Context” graphic organizer. Students complete it as they reread Strega Nona. Work together to determine where and when the students think the story takes place. Strategy If visualizing is new to your students, provide them with one specific sense to pay attention to while reading. For example: number off and students who are number one specifically listen/read to see what could be heard. Number two students read to see what could have been seen, etc., then come back together as a group to process. Formative Assessment-Teacher Students create a one to two minute radio announcement to encourage travelers to go to a location.
