Book: Annie and the Old One by Miska Miles
Procedure:
Distribute 4 post-its to each student. Explain that they will be used to jot
down their ideas during the read aloud of Annie and the Old One.
On page 4, students will use one post-it to write down what they think a
Hogan is based on the context clues.
Volunteers will then share their ideas with the group.
After hearing some ideas, continue reading. Stop on page 12 to have
students predict what will happen on page 13. Have them use a new post-it
to jot down their ideas.
Volunteers will then share their ideas with the group. Make sure to encourage
students to share who have not yet.
After hearing some ideas, continue reading. Stop on page 23 to have
students infer why Annie stole her teachers shoe. Have them use a new postit to jot down their ideas.
Volunteers will then share their ideas with the group. Make sure to encourage
students to share who have not yet.
After hearing some ideas, continue reading. Stop on page 41 to have
students identify the meaning of the analogies on the page. Have them use a
new post-it to jot down their ideas.
Volunteers will then share their ideas with the group. Make sure to encourage
students to share who have not yet.
Finish the book.
Talk to the students about how they did a lot of deeper thinking while
listening to Annie and the Old One. Explain to them that they came up with
their answers because they had used the surrounding text to give them clues.
Have the students get out a piece of paper, and have them write the why?
to all of the answers that they had already jotted down. Have them use this
time as a reflection period, and encourage them to use their post-its as a

reference. They should write a reflection for each post-it, and each reflection
should be 2-3 sentences long.
Collect students reflections.
Evaluation:
Observe students responses and interactions during the read aloud.
Collect students reflections, and gauge their understanding of context clues,
prediction, inferences, and analogies.
