In today's lesson, students will revisit the informational text, "The Seasons of Arnold's Apple Tree" guided by teacher's think-alouds, and by asking and answering text-dependent questions. The goal of the day is for students to understand how the illustrations provide useful guidance as to what is happening in the story and to be able to answer the question: "How do the illustrations of the tree branches help us understand what is happening in the story?" This series of close reading lesson plans was created by a member of the 2015 Delaware Dream Team. Special Materials: Text should be projected on a screen so that all students can see.
