4) Assessment Activity: After completing the guided reading, students will
be informally assessed
5) Plans to differentiate: (give a brief explanation for each area
separately): [TPE 6, 7, 8, 12]
ELS: I will differentiate the lesson for my ELS by defining words that
may be unfamiliar to them, such as blurted: say (something) suddenly
and without careful consideration; concentrating: focus one's attention
or mental effort on a particular object or activity; hoist: 1.raise
(something) by means of ropes and pulleys; cringed: 1.bend one's
head and body in fear or in a servile manner. I will then use those
words in another sentence to help them better understand the
meaning of the word and help them make connections.

Students with special needs: I will differentiate the lesson for the
students with special needs by reading at a slower pace and
emphasizing the sound of the words so that I can model the proper
way to say the words. I will also make sure to change my tone of voice

to match what the character is feeling. I will also have my facial

expressions match my tone all to engage the children.

Summary: The students will be sitting at the round table, in their

chairs across from me and I will be sitting on a chair in the middle and I
will introduce the story, Horrible Harry on the Ropes by Suzy Kline,
holding it up for all the students to see instructing them to turn to page
26 and have them begin to read chapter four until page 31.
