  1. “The Crowded House” By Eva Jacob Illustrated by Holly Cooper

  2. Setting PurposeListen to Understand • Some poems are written to express opinions and feelings. • Notice the differences between the open country and a crowded city.

  3. Self-Questioning Strategy • Self-Questioning is silently asking yourself questions about what you hear that will help you understand what the poems are about.

  4. Point of View • 1st person – Uses the word I or WE. • 2nd person – Uses the words HE, SHE, or THEY. • 3rd person omniscient – All knowing and all seeing the author can tell you what each character knows, feels, thinks, and says.

  5. Emotions • Emotions can be expressed by a character’s actions and words. • An author can help readers see a character’s emotions through what a character says or does.

  6. Read Aloud“Rudolph Is Tired of the City” These buildings are too close to me. I’d like to PUSH away. I’d like to live in the country. And spread my arms all day. I’d like to spread my breath out, too- As farmers’ sons and daughters do. I’d tend the cows and chickens. I’d do the other chores. Then, all the hours left I’d go A-SPREADING out-of-doors.

  7. Read Aloud“Childhood Country” When I was a child in the city Tall buildings made everything dark And I longed to live on a meadow As sunny as Central Park. Now I live in the country Where flowers and trees abound. And squirrels, chipmunks, and foxes Scurry across the ground. And hidden by leaves in the treetops An occasional glimmer of wing Is followed by magical music As the warblers begin to sing. The lawns are aglow with roses, They sky is the bluest of blue, And the sun’s rays enter my window As if to say, How do you do. And yet, though I love the country And find every part so pretty, I long for the yard of my childhood In the heart of New York City.

  8. Poetry • Stanzas • Repetition • Does NOT follow grammar rules • Personification • Onomatopoeia • End rhyme

  9. Listening Comprehension • Who is the speaker in the first poem? • How do you know? (point of view) • Who is the speaker in the second poem? • How do you know? (point of view) • What does the speaker in each poem long for? WHY? (character’s emotions)

  10. Author’s Purpose • Inform – Give information about a topic. • Persuade – Get readers to do something or believe something. • Entertain – Enjoyable, makes you laugh. • Instructions – To help you make or do something.

  11. Text Structure and Format • Reading Plays is different from reading other types of material. • A short play is divided into parts called scenes. • At the beginning of each scene, the author describes the setting and tells what the characters are doing. • Each character’s name is written in capital letters followed by a colon before the words he or she speaks. • Instructions tell characters what to do are called stage directions. They are printed in italics.

  12. Vocabulary • wits – The ability to think; good sense. • wailing – To cry. • faring – To get along; to manage. • advice – Suggestions or directions on what to do. • dreadful – Awful; very bad. • farewell – Words spoken when leaving; a good-bye.

  14. Build Background Places I feel crowded

  15. Develop Concepts • If you need advice, who would you ask? • Do you always do what you are told by older family members or guardians? • Have you ever had to do something you didn’t like because you knew it was good for you? • What important lessons have you learned from wise people in your life?

  16. Discuss & Assign Parts • Father (John the Carpenter) • Mother • Molly • Joan • Meg • Mary Ann • Martin • Willy • Tom • Joseph • Granny • Bartholomew • Goat • 6 Chickens • Donkey

  17. Genre = Play • A play is a story that can be performed for an audience. • In this selection, look for: • Directions for how it should be performed on a stage. • Action divided into scenes.

  18. Drawing Conclusions Using the text to support your answer, what is the setting? Important Details How many children do John and his wife have? What parts of the text tell you this?

  19. Problem/Solution or Conflict/Resolution -Conflict is a problem in a story -Resolution is fixing a problem . . . . Remember: there is more than one way to fix a problem! -For example: In “The Talent Show,” Beany was going to perform in the talent show with Carol Ann, but she did not want to. This is a conflict or problem. Beany decided to perform by herself. This is resolution because it fixes the problem.

  20. Problem/Solution or Conflict/Resolution • What problem does the family have? • How do the characters’ words and actions show the problem? • How does the family feel when the animals leave the house?

  21. Compare/Contrast • Objective: To understand what comparing and contrasting are and how to tie information together. • Access Prior Knowledge - Compare Beany and Jose. Comparing tells how two or more things are alike Beany and Jose both have to solve a problem. - Contrast Beany and Jose. Contrasting tells how two or more things are different Beany likes cartwheels, but Jose likes baseball.
