Day 3: "Jack and the Beanstalk"

In Day 3 of this lesson plan, students will be focusing on the points of view of Jack and the giant. They will examine how the two characters perceive an event in the story. To answer the focus question, students will be expected to find evidence in the text about the characters reactions, determine the points of view of the characters around the event, and organize those thoughts into a graphic organizer. This question supports the understanding of Jack's motivation behind his actions, which will help students lead to an understanding of how Jack overcomes his challenges for Day 5. Special Materials: * Copies of the text for every student * Copies of the student notes sheet for every student * Chart paper and markers, if needed
