Before Read Aloud:
Read with students the content objective and discuss the words interactions, relationships, and

have students repeat the word after it is pronounced by the teacher. Display all words.

Teacher: This story is called My Very Own Room. Raise your hand if you have your own
room. Hands down. Now raise your hand if you do not have your own room and you have to
share it. Hands down. I would like for you to turn and talk to your partner and tell them if you
would like to have your very own room and why. (Teacher can model by sharing her/his personal
experiences of sharing a room before students share.)
Have students share their answers, the teacher can create a chart using feelings.
