A paper heart for each student
A Book or story such as “Hooray for Wodney Wat”
- As the story is read, students are to tear a piece off their heart each time they hear an unkind action. Relate to students personal experiences.
- Using Pair/Share Structure have students discuss the following:
- Describe how do you think Rodney felt when he wasn’t able to pronounce his ‘r’s?
- How did his classmates act towards Wodney?
- How did he become a hero?
Option: Use ‘HAND’Y Curriculum (instruction page) to identify in the story the Who, When, Where, What, How, and an example of Expectation #2 being demonstrated.
Pair Share: (P 3,5,6)
1 - If students are seated on floor: Designate ‘elbow buddies’.
2 - If students are seated at tables: Assign table partner.
3 - If students are standing: Have students walk around and on a designated signal, find a partner near them. Those students without a partner raise their hands and find one.
4 - Have pairs share with each other, then with other pairs, other teams, or the entire group.
Create a ’T’ chart either as a whole group or individually comparing Wodney Wat at the beginning of the story and then at the end of the story.
