         Build Background
• Remember that we have read a lot of
  stories in this unit about characters being
  brave.
• What stories have you read about
  characters that were brave?
• The story that we are going to be reading
  this week is about a boy who is afraid but
  proves that he can act brave even when he
  feels afraid.
    Background Information
    about Native Americans
• Some Native Americans in the United
  States live on reservations (land set aside
  for the people of their nation).
• The story we are going to be reading is a
  realistic story that includes some cultural
  information about Native Americans and
  their lives today…not long ago.
     Background Information
       about Spelling Bees
• Spelling bees are contests that allow good
  spellers to compete against eachother.
• What are the rules?
  – Each speller is given a word to spell.
  – The word is usually pronounced, used in a sentence,
    and then pronounced again (like our spelling tests).
  – The speller then says the word, spells the word, and
    then says the word again.
  – If the word is spelled correctly, the speller stays
    standing. If the word is misspelled, the speller sits
    down.
  – As the bee continues, the words get harder.
  – The last one standing is the winner.
      Preview and Prepare
• Look at the title of the story, look at the
  pictures, look at the words.

    persuade or to explain
  – Turn to pg. 152-153 in your Comprehension and

    happen in the story.

Checking Comprehension

  brave, clever, and silent?
• How does being like a mountain lion, a
  coyote, and a spider help Spider in the
