Day 2: "The Rooster and the Fox"

This series of close reading lesson plans was created by a member of the 2015 Delaware Dream Team. The teacher will reread the text and have the students focus on the phrase “Rooster spotted a flash of red”. The teacher will guide the students to understand the phrase "spotted a flash of red" through a think-aloud. Then the teacher will guide the students through a second reading asking supporting questions that lead to the focus question "How does the phrase 'Rooster spotted a flash of red' help you know that Fox is being sneaky?" This focus question will help the students understand the character of the Fox, which is necessary for answering the culminating question.
