their ideas and observations must be in the mindset of an ant or giraffe.2.

UDL***Accommodationsfor learningmodalities arerequired.
Label…visual,auditory, andkinestheticTo check for formative assessment to prior knowledge of writing with aspecific perspective, teacher should write out one important question onsmall slips of paper and have student answer them individually. Thencollect the slips of paper and check for accurate understanding. Theteacher can then gather an understanding of where she should start andwhat areas she may need to concentrate on.
The teacher will read the story aloud to the class.
The teacher will immediately ask guided questions and lead thestudents to the right answer during and after the reading.
The students will listen to the story and actively participate in thefollowing question session by answering and asking newquestions.
Teacher will talk with students about how the charactersexperienced troubles matching up with partners and objects thatmatched their size.
Teacher will then introduce the concept of perspective.
Teacher will revisit the characters from the story and their struggles, but this time explain it revolving around the term perspective to help students make the connection. 
Guideline 1:
Provide options for perception; present information indifferent ways so that students with ranging learning styles can obtain the
* TechnologyIntegration
Include type and purposeinformation in the way that works best for them.(see accommodations below)
Visual: use smart board to create interactive learning with thechildren.
: bring students on a virtual tour of how an ant or giraffe see the world from their perspective in their naturalenvironment.
Auditory: not only read the story,
To Big, Too Small, Just Right 
aloud to the students, but allow the students to read out loud withyou (echo reading), or in small groups together.

have students pretend to be an ant or giraffe in theclassroom
students could crawl around the classroom and stay as closeto the ground as possible to help them imagine what it would belike to be an ant, and how everything would appear to them in theclassroom.
Teacher will introduce the writing activity.
Teacher will do so by walking students through the activity basedon an example she has previously completed.
Teacher will then show two pictures of different animals, an antand a giraffe.
Students will brainstorm, together as a class, and discuss the sizeof the animals.

Students will then be instructed to write their own short storyabout either an ant or giraffe and what would happen during a dayif they entered the classroom.
Students will write from the perspective of the animal and tell astory about what objects would be too big or too small and whatchallenges the animal may have.
Could the animal get throughthe doorway? Could the animal sit at a desk? Could the animalreach the board? How would the animal feel? Would anything beeasier for the animal to do, or more difficult?
