NCTE/IRA NATIONAL STANDARDS FOR THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS

1. Students read a wide range of print and nonprint texts to build an understanding of texts, of themselves, and of the cultures of the United States and the world; to acquire new information; to respond to the needs and demands of society and the workplace; and for personal fulfillment. Among these texts are fiction and nonfiction, classic and contemporary works.

3. Students apply a wide range of strategies to comprehend, interpret, evaluate, and appreciate texts. They draw on their prior experience, their interactions with other readers and writers, their knowledge of word meaning and of other texts, their word identification strategies, and their understanding of textual features (e.g., sound–letter correspondence, sentence structure, context, graphics).

6. Students apply knowledge of language structure, language conventions (e.g., spelling and punctuation), media techniques, figurative language, and genre to create, critique, and discuss print and nonprint texts.

12. Students use spoken, written, and visual language to accomplish their own purposes (e.g., for learning, enjoyment, persuasion, and the exchange of information).

English Language Arts — Kindergarten

3. Students will break into groups of four and create a story map.

4. Students will come back together as a class and share the story maps they have created.

5. Students will create a class story map.

6. Students will review information they have learned about Earthworms.

7. Using information that the students have previously learned about worms they will now as a class create a Venn Diagram with the book Diary Of A Worm and Worms.

STORY MAP

Name of the book: Diary of a WormAuthor: Doreen Cronin; Illustrated by Harry Bliss

Setting: This story happens in places where you would find worms.

Where: Underground, on the playground, at school, on the sidewalk, outside and in a tree.

When: We don’t know exactly when the story takes place, but we are pretty sure it is happening now because the kids are dressed like us.

Main Character: The two main characters are worm and his friend Spider.

Other Characters: Worm’s family and some kids on the playground.

Some Events in the story

Event one: Worm plays with his best friend spider and tries to teach spider how to dig. Spiders legs got stuck and swallowed a bunch of dirt. They have problems in the story,but they stay friends.

Event two: Worm goes to school without his lunch and he eats his homework. He has to write I will not eat my homework. He eats that too.

Event three: Worm said good morning to the first ant he saw. There were 600 ants and he stayed there all day saying hi to all of them.

The most important thing in the story is that Worm does really like being a worm. His mom always says, “The earth never forgets we are here.”
