This Introduce Reading Connected Text lesson plan also includes:
Get your scholars ready to read their first story...with a little assistance, of course. Projecting the short story (included) for all readers to see, point to each word so they can sound it out together. The strategy here is not to have them shout out the word as soon as they know it; require that learners wait until you say, "what's the word?" before reciting it. Prepare kids for more difficult words. Once they finish, have them read through it again more quickly. Point out that the first word has a capital letter and the sentence ends in a period.
