    1.6 Speaking and Listening: B. Listen to a selection of literature and share information and ideas.

 Given a selection from My Backpack, (first page of text) students will orally compare what they put in their backpack to what the boy
   in the story places in his backpack.
 Given a selection from My Backpack, (the first half of the story) students will make predictions based on what they have already
   heard in the story by responding to questions from the teacher.
 Behavioral Objective: To have children maintain minimal movement/volume through an oral reading

 The teacher will informally assess students’ interactivity based on their contributions to the classroom discussion or raising their hand
   to contribute to the discussion.
 The teacher will informally assess student attentiveness and behavior during the oral reading by noting movement and volume levels
   of the group.
1. Anticipatory Set:
    The teacher will carry her book bag to the front of the class room and say to the students: “If you bring your things to school in a
        backpack, raise your hand.” The teacher will acknowledge that just about everyone in the class uses a backpack to carry their
        items to school, including the teacher.
2. Activating Prior Knowledge:
    None necessary
3. Presentation:
    The teacher will remove the book My Backpack from her book bag. She will say to the students, “Today, we are going to read a
        story about a boy and his backpack. Just like you put things in your backpack, he puts many things in his!”
    The teacher will read the first page of the story. She will stop and ask the students, “If you know some of the things that we carry
        in our backpacks, raise your hands.” The teacher will entertain a few remarks from the students (2-3 max) and then say, “Let’s
        see what the boy in the story will put in his backpack. If you think that they boy will put the same things in his backpack that we
        all put in ours, put your hands on your head.” The teacher will acknowledge however many students that think the boy will use
        his backpack for similar items and continue with the story.
    About halfway through the story (just after the boy takes the cat in the backpack and heads outside) the teacher will stop and say
        to the class. “Oh no! It looks like this boy has taken many things that might be important to people – like his brother’s mitt or the
        TV remote control. What do you think will happen next?” The teacher will ask several students (only those who are not shouting
        out or interrupting) what their predictions are about the story. After a few students have responded, the teacher will briefly
        summarize the student predictions and then say, “Let’s see if any of our predictions are right about what will happen next.”
    The teacher will complete the story. She will acknowledge if predictions were correct or incorrect.
4. Closure:
    The teacher will say to the class, “It looks like that boy had way too many things in his backpack that were not his and look at all
        of the trouble it caused. We should always remember to put only our own folders and lunchboxes in our backpacks or else
        people might go looking for things that we have taken!”
 None necessary (moving right on to next lesson regardless of time).
