Day 1: "The Rooster and the Fox"

This series of close reading lesson plans was created by a member of the 2015 Delaware Dream Team. In today's initial lesson, students will be introduced to key vocabulary words appearing in the text "The Rooster and the Fox". Students will listen to a read aloud of the text, with strategic pauses to recognize vocabulary and key moments in the story. The students will then retell the story with a partner. 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. Special Materials: Index cards or chart paper with vocabulary words from text.
