  4. 4. <ul><li>cluttered </li></ul><ul><li>If something is filled with a messy collection of things, it is cluttered . </li></ul><ul><li>downstream </li></ul><ul><li>Downstream means in the same </li></ul><ul><li>direction as the current of a stream. </li></ul><ul><li>nuzzle </li></ul><ul><li>If you nuzzle something, you touch or rub it </li></ul><ul><li>with your nose. </li></ul>VOCABULARY REVIEW
  5. 5. GENRE: Realistic Fiction <ul><li>Realistic fiction is a made up </li></ul><ul><li>story that could have happened </li></ul><ul><li>in real life. </li></ul><ul><li>Characters and setting are </li></ul><ul><li>realistic and believable. </li></ul><ul><li>Events in the story are things </li></ul><ul><li>that really could happen. </li></ul>
  6. 6. STRATEGY: Make Inferences <ul><li>Authors do not always directly tell the </li></ul><ul><li>reader everything that is happening in a </li></ul><ul><li>story. </li></ul><ul><li>One way good readers can analyze a story is </li></ul><ul><li>to compare their own life experiences to </li></ul><ul><li>those of the characters and drawing </li></ul><ul><li>reasonable conclusions about the </li></ul><ul><li>the way the setting affects the plot. </li></ul><ul><li>The setting of a story may affect what </li></ul><ul><li>happens in the plot, and may also affect </li></ul><ul><li>what the characters say and do. </li></ul>
  7. 7. PREVIEW & PREDICT <ul><li>When I say “Go”, take 1 minute to preview the illustrations. </li></ul><ul><li>Ask yourself: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>In what kind of surroundings does </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the story take place? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How might that affect what happens </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>in the story? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>On your index card, write your </li></ul><ul><li>predictions. After we listen to the selection, we will see if your </li></ul><ul><li>questions were answered. </li></ul>
  8. 8. FOCUS QUESTION <ul><li>Read to find out... </li></ul><ul><li>What was it that turned Nicky’s summer around? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>NOW…you will read along as we listen to ... </li></ul></ul>
  9. 10. Let’s Check our Predictions! <ul><li>Share with your criss-cross/shoulder partner your predictions. Were they correct? </li></ul><ul><li>Did you figure out what turned Nicky’s summer around? </li></ul><ul><li>TOMORROW WE WILL...… </li></ul><ul><li>Use our “Setting Flow Chart” to answer the Comprehension Check questions on page 137. </li></ul>
