comprehension strategy

Use Story Structure to help you understand the problem, and the solution of the problem.

Comprehension Strategy

Good readers pay attention at the beginning of a story to find out about the characters, the setting, and the problem faced by the characters. In the middle of the story, good readers look for important events that lead to the problem being solved at the end.

T44 Comprehension Strategy

Student Book page 306


Pages 305-308


Dana, Mrs .Lasiter, Carolyn, Mama, daddy, Granddaddy, Josh Greg, Steward, Debra Miller, Grandmama

Community center

Page 312

Problem or Plot

Carolyn worries that her parents love her siblings more.

Pages 302-319

Important Events


Dana and Josh perform successfully. Carolyn is too nervous to perform. Carolyn runs from the stage. Carolyn talks to her mother in the parking lot.

Pages 319


Carolyn’s mother convinces her that she is loved as much as her brothers and sisters.

T 44 Practice Book page 93



RETELL Remember that the plot is made up of the event, or things that happen, in a story. Keeping track of what is happening and when it happens can help a reader understand the story better. The plot includes the main character’s problem and the solution. Can someone tell me Carolyn’s main problem?

Carolyn’s main problem is that she believes her parents love her siblings more than her.

Now look at the graphic organizer you have been completing and use it to write a short summary of the story, including all the important events.

fluency expression

Reading With Expression Good readers show feeling and mood, or expression, as they read, matching what the writer has the characters say or think. For example, when a character is scared, a good reader will make his or her voice go higher. Readers can make their voices fierce for anger or squeaky and fast to show excitement.


Now listen and follow along as I read page 311 .

Reading with expression makes the story more interesting.

Now we are going to get with our reading partners and practice reading with expression page 311. One will read one paragraph and then the other will read the next paragraph and so on till you finish that page. If you finish before I call time then read it again but this time you read your partners paragraph and let them read the paragraphs you just read.


build robust vocabulary

swooned    You might do this if you have a terrible shock or surprise that makes you faint or fall

astonished    To be amazed and surprised by something.

envious   When you want something that someone else has


rivalry   When two people compete against each other for something

1. Carolyn felt envious of the way her parents treated her brother and sister.

4.Would you be envious of a friend’s toy that you also had or a toy that you didn’t have?

1. Carolyn feels a rivalry with her brother and sister because she thinks she is competing against them for her parents’ love.

4. Would there be a rivalry between players on the same team or on two different teams?

T55 Transparency R70


Now list things that might make you envious of someone else and tell how the things on the list are alike and how are they different?

Work with a partner to think of examples of rivalry. Then brainstorm words, such as competitive, to describe a rivalry.

4. The dogs leashes is lost.

5. my friends comforted me





grammar plural possessive nouns

TEACH/MODEL Remember that plural means “more than one” and that a plural noun names more than one person, place, or thing. Most plural nouns end in s. If I want to show that one of these plural nouns owns or has something, I just add an apostrophe (‘) after the final s.


The students desks are in a row.

The word students is a plural noun and the students have the desks. We add an apostrophe to show that the desk belong to the students.

T 56


Guided Practice

The boys poems were good ones.

The girls performances were wonderful.

As I read the first sentence I see that the word boys should be made possessive because the poems belong to the boys. Can someone tell me where the apostrophe should be.

Now look at this sentence and see if you can tell me what word should have an apostrophe and where it should go.

T56 Guided Practice







On a separate sheet of paper, write each word and then make it possessive.

Now write a sentence using each word. Then share your sentence with your neighbor and check to make sure their plural possessive forms are correct.
