  2. Read Aloud Today we are going read a poem “The Letter”. Why might we read or listen to a poem? We might read a poem for enjoyment or to listen to rhyming words. As you listen to the poem you should imagine how you would feel in this situation. T 399 Transparency R79

  3. The Letter I looked in the mailbox. What did I see? A letter was sitting, addressed just to me. I never received a letter before. So I grabbed it and ran inside the front door. I opened it, my head like a drum. I looked at the end. Who was it from? There at the bottom was the name “May”- My very best friend who had just moved away. She liked her new teacher, whose name was Miss Wu, And she said that she missed me- “I want to see you.” I read my first letter again and again, And answered it back, right there and then.

  4. Discuss the Poem What do you think the girls feeling were about receiving the letter? As you tell me what her feelings were think about your own experiences to explain your point. T 399 Transparency R79

  5. Remember that words often have groups of letters that stand for one sound. Consonant Digraphskn, gn, wr, gh Each of these words has a letter combination that stands for one sound. knee wrinkle tough gnaw What sound do you hear in each? • The gh can also stand for the/g/ . • When it comes at the end of a word or syllable, though, it often stands for /f/.

  9. PlotComprehension: Review Remember that a plot is what happens in the story. The important events make up the plot. The plot often includes a problem that must be solved or a goal the characters must achieve. The characters try to solve the problem or reach the goal. T 402

  10. Practice/Apply Look on page 433 in your text and tell me what problem or goal the characters have. They have to offer advice to the children who wrote to the magazine. Let’s look at the important events which are: receiving each letter and giving each piece of advice. Do the characters solve the problem or reach their goal ? What is your reason for your answer? Yes, because the characters have advice for every letter they chose and they think the next issue of the magazine will be the best one yet. T 402

  11. Use Context CluesComprehension: Review Remember that context clues can help readers figure out the meaning of unfamiliar words. To find the meaning of a new word, readers should look at the sentence in which that words appears. You might find a synonym or the definition for the word or you may find clues that can help you figure out the meaning from what you have read. T 403

Can you tell me the clue in the sentence that was helpful? The clue was that there was a heavy rainstorm and this helps me know drenched probably means soaking wet. T 403

  13. Independent Practice Copy this sentence in your notebook and write what you think sage means. Then underline the context clues that helped you figure out the meaning. I discuss problems with my mom because she is wise and solves them with sage advice. Sage means wise and I know this because it says she is wise, solves them, and advice and all of these words are clues and helps me know what sage means. T403

  14. Readers’ Theater Read Together: “Ask the Experts” Genre: Remember that “Ask the Experts” is a script about an advice column. An advice column takes questions from its readers and offers advice to answer them. Have any of you ever asked a friend or family member for advice or read an advice column in a magazine. Preview What kind of advice was offered and do you know if the advice was followed? T404

  15. Readers’ Theater Read Together: “Ask the Experts” Now lets talk about reading with expression and intonation. Good readers use their voices to show changes in action or characters’ feelings. Remember that one way to show action or feelings is the rise and fall of a reader’s voice, also know as intonation. Focus on Fluency T404

  20. GRAMMAR Review: Singular and Plural Pronouns A noun names a person, place, or thing and a pronoun takes the place of a noun. A singular pronoun takes the place of a singular noun, and a plural pronoun takes the place of a plural noun.

  24. Writing Revise Revise For Sentence Fluency and Voice I want you to look at one of your writing pieces and see whether changing a statement to a question or an exclamation would make your writing more interesting. Keep in mind that sentences of different lengths also make writing more interesting to the reader. As you are reading over your piece make sure your sentences flow from one to the next. If there is a connection between two ideas, perhaps you should add a transition word or phrase such as however, but, or for instance. T 407
