Word Study Sorting: Sorted correctly &

Picture/Word Sort Self-corrected sorting
Chap Drag Trip Jog
(picture) (picture) (picture) (picture)
Chum Drag Trap Just Other:
Champ Drank Trot Jet
Chant Drip Trash Junk
Chunk Drop Trim
First, I will model the word sort by doing a think
aloud with the picture cards. I will have the headers
out on the table (Chap, Drag, Trip, Jog). After I model
the sort, I will ask if she recognizes any features from
last week. We worked on ch and tr last week. Then I
will have the students try to read the words for me to
know if the words are too difficult for the student.
We will then do the sort together and place the
words under the correct headers. Continuing to make
connections to the words and the feature.
The student will then independently do the sort.

2. Extend and Apply:
Writing Sort
I will give student a dry erase board and
have her write the heading along the top
(chap, drag, trip, jog). I will read the words
that have asterisks next to them and have
her try her best to write the words under the
correct header.
I will be looking to see if the student is
writing the correct affricate and not
confusing ch, tr, and dr like she did on her
spelling inventory.

Teacher Read Develop oral language Book: Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus by Barbara
Aloud Increase vocabulary Park (Guided Reading level M)
Model comprehension
Time: 20% Theme (if any): Visualizing and Connections
10 minutes Foster joy of reading

Interactive read-alouds (fiction & non-fiction)
Junie B. Jones is beyond the students instructional level.
This is a read aloud that we will read throughout the
lessons. I plan on reading one to two chapters each lesson,
depending on what time permits.
This book allows students to make many connections. The
book starts out on her first day of Kindergarten and
meeting the teacher. It allows students makes connections
to her life and also visualize what is going on in the story
based the text. I will stop as I am reading to have student
discussion the connections she is making.

In the students writing sample, she used a lot of
dialogue in her writing. She did not attend to
punctuation. As we read, I will stop and point out
the quotation marks around what the person is
saying, and the punctuation at the end of
sentences. I will model what it would sound like if I
did not attend to punctuation and what it sounds
like when I do attend to punctuation.
Vocabulary- anxious and exhilarated
- Talk about how Junie must have felt on her first
day of school. Say that if she felt nervous then she
felt anxious. Use it in a sentence for her. Say she
also must have felt exhilarated- which means
excited and happy. Ask her about a time she felt
