  1. Good Wednesday Morning! Today is August 21, 2013. • shield- to protect • frontier- an area yet to be discovered • shriek- to scream loudly • beliefs - personal ideas and thoughts • relieve- to ease pain away Interesting Quote of the Day: “I haven’t failed. I have just found 10,000 ways that don’t work.” --Thomas Edison (American inventor) Today is National “Poet’s Day.” How great to celebrate? • Please sign in and find your seat quietly. • Copy your vocabulary words into the Reading Keys section of your Stash book. • Take care of any morning needs. (Pencils, bathroom, water, check out a book, etc.) Do you have your morning books? Be sure you do because you will not be allowed to get up during class. Trivial Fact of the Day: Every U.S. dime has exactly 118 ridges around its edge.

  7. Homonyms What are they? Did you use any homonyms this morning, or did you read any in your book?

  8. Model: There they stood in their roomy ox stalls, clean and sleek and gleaming brown, with long black manes and tails. Farmer Boy • There they danced in the large multi-purpose room. • They were young and nervous but very excited. • They were with new pretty shirts and dresses. Combination- There they danced in the large multi-purpose room, young and nervous but very excited, with new pretty shirts and dresses. My imitation: Soon the stars appeared in the huge theater lobby, glamorous and dashing and super confident, with constant perky smiles and laughter.

  9. Your Turn Model: Because he was so small, Stuart was often hard to find around the house. Stuart Little • It happened when the train was very late. • Then the passengers were usually easy to spot. • They could be spotted in the restaurant. Now, you make an imitation sentence. Model: Outside, the lights of towns and villages flickered in the distance as the Polar Express raced northward. The Polar Express • It happened nearby. • The exhibits of computers and printers filled with crowds. • This happened because the sale prices lowered further. Your Turn

  10. Let’s Be Writers! Let’s just write!

  11. Wednesday How to summarize FICTION text One quick way is to remember the Somebody Wanted But So Then technique Let’s create a page on summarizing.

  12. What is a summary? Which best describes a summary? • A really long and detailed piece of writing • The entire text, told in your own words • A dumb thing that teachers make you write • The main ideas and important details of a text

  13. What is a summary? Which best describes a summary? D. The main ideas and important details of a text

  14. How do I write a summary? • Sometimes, it’s best to think first about how NOT to write a summary • On the next few slides, you will see some strategies for summarizing that are NOT successful!

  15. Bad strategy #1:Copy and delete In this strategy, you just copy a few of the ideas from the text, writing a few sentences and deleting (taking out) a few sentences

  16. Bad strategy #2: Write down everything In this strategy, you include every single detail and everything that happens from the story in no order just putting down every single idea and it goes on and on and you run out of room because you just keep wri..

  17. Bad strategy #3: Do as little as possible This creates a very short summary. You just put down one sentence that has very little detail: This story was about a girl and a magical trip.

  18. Bad strategy #4: Write a review • In your summary, just include what the author put in the story. • Do not write your own opinions, like “This was a great book!” • Do not leave a cliffhanger ending, like “If you want to know what happens, read the book!”

  19. So what’s a good strategy? A good summary of fiction includes: • Characters • Setting • Important events and details from the plot, in order • The theme of the story

  20. How long does it have to be? • Answer: Long enough! • Really, it depends on the story and your purpose for writing the summary. • If you are given lines for writing a summary, a good rule of thumb is to try to fill up at least three quarters of the lines.

  21. Talk about it! With your partner, answer this question: • Have you ever used an unsuccessful strategy for summarizing? • What should a good summary contain?

  22. Now, some practice Listen as your teacher reads aloud The Very Hungry Caterpillar. After the story, you and your partner will choose the best summary.

  23. Which is the best summary of the story? Write 1, 2, and 3 on your paper. After you read each summary, either circle it (if it is a good summary) or cross it out (if it is a poor summary)

  24. Which is the best summary of the story? Summary #1 A bug comes out of an egg. It eats lots of food. This is a great book. If you want to find out how it ends, you should read it!

  25. Which is the best summary of the story? Summary #2 A caterpillar hatches from an egg. After eating many different kinds of food, it turns into a beautiful butterfly.

  26. Which is the best summary of the story? Summary #3 In the warm moonlight, a caterpillar hatches out of an egg. First it eats an apple. Then it eats a pear. Then it eats three plums. Then it eats four strawberries. Then it eats five oranges. Then it eats lots of other things. Finally it spins a cocoon around itself. It turns into a beautiful butterfly!

  27. Talk with your partner Which summary did you think was best? Why?

  28. Which is the best summary of the story? Summary #1 A bug comes out of an egg. It eats lots of food. This is a great book. If you want to find out how it ends, you should read it! This summary includes personal opinions. It is also inaccurate—a bug does not come out of the egg, a caterpillar does.

This summary includes personal opinions. It is also inaccurate—a bug does not come out of the egg, a caterpillar does.

  30. Which is the best summary of the story? Summary #3 In the warm moonlight, a caterpillar hatches out of an egg. First it eats an apple. Then it eats a pear. Then it eats three plums. Then it eats four strawberries. Then it eats five oranges. Then it eats lots of other things. Finally it spins a cocoon around itself. It turns into a beautiful butterfly! This summary contains more details than are needed. The list of “apple, pear, plums, strawberries, and oranges” can be collapsed into “fruits” or “different kinds of food”.

  32. Which is the best summary of the story? Summary #2 A caterpillar hatches from an egg. After eating many different kinds of food, it turns into a beautiful butterfly. This summary includes the main character of the story, as well as the important events. It does not include trivial details or opinions.

  33. Which is the best summary of the story? Summary #2 A caterpillar hatches from an egg. After eating many different kinds of food, it turns into a beautiful butterfly. This summary includes the main character of the story, as well as the important events. It does not include trivial details or opinions. This is the best summary!

  34. Review Write answers to these questions on your paper. • What should a summary of a story include? • What should you avoid including in a summary?

  35. Metacognitive Strategies Yesterday we talked about… Today we will learn about clarifying.

  36. Now that you are FANTASTIC summarizers, let’s put that knowledge into practice! Double Entry Journal Explanation

  37. Protective Coloration Protective Coloration is a kind of camouflage in which animals try to blend in with the background Why is this protective coloration and not protective resemblance? Can you find the fiddler crab?

  38. Protective Coloration How is this ghost crab using Protective Coloration? Notice that the tiny ghost crab is hard to see. It blends in with the sand. This is an example of Protective Coloration.

  39. Protective Coloration How does Protective Coloration help this ghost crab to survive? Ghost crabs live in burrows on the beach, but go down to the waves each day to wet their gills and find food. Their camouflage helps them to avoid being eaten.

  40. Protective Coloration How do these inchworms blend in with their environment? These inchworms are the same color as the leaves that they are feeding on. This helps to keep them from being eaten by hungry birds.

  41. Protective Coloration Why is Protective Coloration important for this cheetah? Even though cheetahs don’t have to hide from predators, their spots help them to avoid being seen as they hunt for prey.

  42. Protective Coloration Think back to the examples that you thought of. Which ones were Protective Coloration? How were the animals trying to blend in with their surroundings?

  43. Mimicry Animals that show a form of camouflage called mimicry look similar to something else

  44. Mimicry Sometimes, a non-poisonous creature will have coloring that looks like a poisonous creature. Many insects look like bumblebees. Why might it be useful to mimic a bumblebee?
