Skill: Sequence Authors usually try to tell the events of a story in the order they happen. Retell the order of events in A Big Fish for Max. As you read, think about the order in which things happen. Ask yourself what happens first, next, and last. Strategy: Monitor and Fix Up Good readers often ask themselves if they understand a story. If something seems confusing or is not clear, a good reader will go back and read a part of a story again.
Ask yourself these questions as you read The Big Circle? What is happening in this part of the story? Should I reread this part to understand it?

Categorize Words Recall the dinosaurs in the story. What did the triceratops and Big T. Rex want to eat? How could you put these dinosaurs into two groups? One group of dinosaurs ate plants. Another group of dinosaurs ate meat. Some dinosaurs ate plants. Scientists know this because these dinosaurs had flat teeth for chewing. Other dinosaurs ate meat. Scientists know this because these dinosaurs had pointed, sharp teeth for cutting and tearing.
Categorize Words Sort the following dinosaurs into meat-eaters or plant-eaters. stegosaurus (flat teeth) raptor (sharp, pointed teeth) allosaurus (sharp, pointed teeth) apatasaurus (flat teeth) ankylosaurus (flat teeth) diplodocus (flat teeth) Meat EatersPlant Eaters
Writing Trait of the Week Introduce: Organization/Paragraphs Good writers organize their ideas so that they make sense. Think about how the author organizes ideas in The Big Circle. These sentences tell about the events in order. Words such as first, next, then, and finally help us follow the order of the events. First, T. Rex wakes up hungry. Next, T. Rex runs toward the triceratops. Then the triceratops make a big circle. Finally, T. Rex runs away.
Writing Trait of the Week Introduce: Organization/Paragraphs Write the sentences in the order in which the events happened. Add a time-order word to each sentence. _____ the triceratops stand in a circle. _____ the herd drives T. Rex away. _____ the herd sees T. Rex. _____ T. Rex smells the triceratops. ___________________________________________ ___________________________________________
Days of the week, months of the year, and some special days have names. When we write the names of days, months, or holidays we need to use capital letters at the beginning. Using the names of days, months, and holidays can make your writing more clear. daymonthholiday MondayJanuaryNew Years TuesdayFebruaryValentines Day WednesdayMarchMothers Day
Wrap Up Your Day! The events in a story happen in a certain order. Remembering the events in order helps us understand and remember the story. A good reader often pauses to think about what is happening and to ask, Does this make sense? Sometimes a good reader needs to stop, go back, and read a part of a story over again to help make sense of the reading. What happened first, next, and last when the triceratops saw the T. Rex?
Preview Day Four Tomorrow we will read about a trip a group of children took to see dinosaurs in a museum.
1. The triceratops mad a circle 2. Can the baby hid in it.
