Day 1: “The Seasons of Arnold’s Apple Tree”

In today's initial lesson, students will be introduced to key vocabulary words appearing in the text "The Seasons of Arnold's Apple Tree." Students will then listen to a read aloud of the text with strategic pauses to recognize vocabulary and key moments in the story. In Days 2-4, students will build on this initial reading to answer text-dependent questions that scaffold toward a culminating task on Day 5. This series of close reading lesson plans was created by a member of the 2015 Delaware Dream Team. Special Materials: Text projected on screen so every student can see.
