2 Question of the Day Lesson 7, Day 1 If you got a new pet, what would you teach it to do? Many animals have the ability to learn, much like people do. Have you ever seen an animal who could do some unusual things, such as play football or fetch the newspaper? Someone HAD to teach the animal how to do those things. Finish the following sentence in your Reading notebook… I would like to teach a pet to___________________. It is helpful for animals to be trained because________________.

3 Cat Training When Shawna turned eight, her aunt gave her a cat named Sugarcube. Shawna thought Sugarcube was the best cat in the world, but her parents did not agree. Sugarcube always jumped on the kitchen table, where she was not supposed to be. She also like to sharpen her claws on the furniture. One day, Sugarcube scratched a huge gash in the family’s new couch. Shawna’s parents were angry. They told her that she needed to train Sugarcube. Shawna got right to work. She took books out of the library and looked on the internet for tips about how to train a cat. She read that scratching posts can keep cats from scratching furniture, so she bought one for Sugarcube. Immediately, Sugarcube stopped scratching the couch and started sharpening her claws on the new post. Shawna’s research also told her that a spray bottle of water can help a cat behave. Most cats dislike water, so squirting Sugarcube with the spray bottle kept her off the table. Shawna’s parents were pleased with the changes and now they love Sugarcube too.

18 Student Model: How-To Paragraph MAKE A HOT AIR BALLOON You can make your own miniature hot air balloon. You will need flour, water, a balloon, newspaper strips, paint, string, and a paper cup. First, blow up the balloon. Next, mix one cup of flour with one cup of water. Dip the newspaper strips into the flour paste. Then, cover the balloon with the wet strips of newspaper. Let it dry for a day or two. When the strips are completely dry, pop the balloon. Then, paint the surface to look like a hot air balloon. Tie the paper cup to the balloon to make the basket. Finally, attach a string to the top of the balloon, hang it in your room, and imagine flying through the sky in a beautiful balloon.

19 How-To Paragraphs  Include materials needed.  Include, IN ORDER, details that explain how to do a specific activity  Use words that show sequence, such as first, next and then.

20 Brainstorm ideas of things you’d like to teach someone.

21 Things I could teach someone. Things I would like to learn to do.

22 Question of the Day for Lesson 7, Day 2 Police officers do many things in communities. A police officer’s job is to help people. Turn to your neighbor and tell them one question you would like to ask a police officer. Now write this question in your reading folder by finishing the following sentence: I would ask a police officer ____________________.

23 Officer Joe Fluff, pant Wag, wag, wag Spot gets a treat from Officer Joe. He sits happily While we pet his back But the one he likes best is Officer Joe. Does Spot like our school? He’ll visit again As long as he’s with officer Joe. When I see a police dog on the street I know who I’ll think of now. I’ll think of Spot, His sharp senses and good manners; And of course, I’ll think of Officer Joe.

24 Consonant Digraphs Chinwhereship Which word has the /ch/ sound as chop? whatitchshoulder Which word has the /ch/ sound? What letters can stand for the /ch/ sound? This week’s spelling words have the consonant patterns: ch, tch, sh, or wh. When words have these patterns, the consonants combine to form a sound different from the sound that each letter makes on its own. Siphipship Ch and tch are both pronounced /ch/.

25 scent A scent is the smell of something. Is a scent something you can touch or something you can smell? Say the word- scent

26 wanders A person who wanders travels without planning where he or she is going. How does someone who wanders move? Say the word- wander

27 whined If someone or something whined, it gave a long, high cry. What creature or object have you heard that whined? Say the word- whined

30 patrol People patrol an area to watch over and guard it. Who would you expect to patrol a neighborhood? Say the word- patrol

31 competent Aero is the most competent dog I have ever seen. If you are competent, you are good at what you are doing. Say the word- competent Who has to be especially competent: a doctor performing an operation or a baby taking a nap?

32 Who would be the most competent to do the following jobs: fly an airplane, fix a cavity, explore the moon?

33 accompany Aero can accompany Officer Mike anywhere he goes. When you accompany someone, you go someplace with him or her. Say the word- accompany Where might children accompany their parents: the grocery store, or to an adult fancy-shmancy party?

34 NOW…With your partner, compose a list of places a dog can accompany you and places a dog cannot accompany you. You have will a few minutes to complete this.

35 Now turn in your book to page You will read the passage to yourself. Then I will read it aloud and we will discuss it together. 1. Why do you think a dog can smell a scent after a person is gone? 2. How far away can a dog see something that wanders by? 3. How could a dog hear a child who whined? 4. What commands might a dog learn to obey? 5. What is a skill a dog could demonstrate? 6. Why would a police officer want to patrol with a dog?

36 Fluency Practice Remember that good readers, like you, make their reading sound like regular conversation by paying attention to punctuation and grouping words that belong together. Look at pages of “Aero and Officer Mike”. I want you to track as I read the opening paragraph. Please pay attention to how I pause at punctuation and put groups of words together. Then it will be your turn: Take turns reading the next 2 paragraphs with your partner. Pay attention to your phrasing.

37 Skill Review REMEMBER: A fact tells about something that can be seen or proved. An opinion tells thoughts or beliefs. Now, let’s write a short summary together using ONLY pg 57 in your reading book about Aero and Officer Mike. Let’s try to include some facts and some of our opinions in this summary about the story.

38 Grammar Practice Read the sentences below: The man walked down the street. Mr. Baker walked down Main Street. What are the nouns in the first sentence? Man, streetThese are common nouns. A common noun names any person, place, or thing. What are the nouns in the second sentence? Mr. Baker, Main StreetThese are proper nouns. A proper noun names a particular person, place, or thing. The first sentence says man, but the second sentence says the name of a man, Mr. Baker. Proper nouns are capitalized to show that they are proper nouns.

39 Grammar Practice continued The boy was born in China. There is one common noun and one proper noun in this sentence. Please identify the nouns and tell me if they are common or proper. boy, common; China, proper How can you tell that China is a proper noun? Now it’s your turn: Please write 2 sentences. Each sentence should have both a common and a proper noun. When you are finished, we will take turns and share with the class.

40 Writing a How-To Paragraph  How-to writing gives specific steps to follow, so that people can do a project, cook something, or make something.  Like most paragraphs, how-to paragraphs begin with a topic sentence to let readers know what the paragraph is about.  Let’s add this item to our list of characteristics of how-to writing.

41 Our list of How-To paragraph characteristics

42 Writing How-To paragraphs… How-to writing often gives instructions that ask people to do multiple (more than one) things. For example, a sentence in a how-to paragraph might say, Raise your hand to make your dog sit, and then give him a treat to reward him. When the person is asked to do 2 related things, cutting the sentence in two helps make the sentence more clear for the reader.

43 Think about the things you said you could teach someone to do yesterday. Let’s make a list of suggestions… Then, let’s pick one to write about together… Our list of ideas

44 Now you pick another topic from the list and write ATLEAST five steps describing how to do the activity. *****Be sure to use the sequencing words (first, next, then, finally)*****

45 Question of the Day for Lesson 7, Day 3 Some dogs are working dogs. Think about Aero. What other jobs could dogs do? Do they have to be well trained to do the things you just discussed? Finish the following sentence in your reading folder… Some jobs that working dogs do are ________________.

46 Officer Joe Fluff, pant Wag, wag, wag Spot gets a treat from Officer Joe. He sits happily While we pet his back But the one he likes best is Officer Joe. Does Spot like our school? He’ll visit again As long as he’s with officer Joe. When I see a police dog on the street I know who I’ll think of now. I’ll think of Spot, His sharp senses and good manners; And of course, I’ll think of Officer Joe.

47 Digraphs ch, tch, sh and wh  Remember that some consonants combine to represent a single sound. sharp chef  The sh in words is almost always pronounced /sh/ as in sharp.  The ch in words can sometimes be pronounced as /sh/ as in chef. The ch can also be pronounced /ch/ as in chin. When you see a word with the ch, you should try the more common /ch/ sound first. If that does not make a word you know, try the /sh/ sound.

48 Phonics/Spelling (continued)  chefchinWhich word has the /sh/ sound? chef  washwatchWhich word has the /sh/ sound? wash  I want you to read the rest of these words, and find the one in each row that has the /sh/ sound. chopsharp machinepeach chanceshark pitchmarsh shamemuch

49 Fluency Practice Good readers, like you, use commas and periods as places to pause. This makes you sound as if you are just talking in natural conversation. Remember to:  make short pauses at end punctuation marks such as periods, exclamation points, and question marks.  make very brief pauses at commas.  think about words that belong together as one idea.  Follow along on page as I read aloud. Please listen to the way I use punctuation to group words into meaningful phrases and follow the natural phrases of the story.  Let’s look at page 206. I will demonstrate how to read aloud using phrases, and I want you to imitate me.

50 Now it’s YOUR turn… With your partner, reread your favorite passage from “Aero and Officer Mike”. Remember to use punctuation to tell you when to pause and then make sure that words that belong together are said as a phrase, without a pause. I want you to read page 207 with your partner, remembering to use punctuation and phrasing as you read. I want each partner to have at least 3 turns to read the page, so you will have about 5 minutes to work.

51 Fact and Opinion Remember that a fact is something that can be proved. An opinion is someone’s idea, feeling, or thought about a topic. We’ll read page 215, 203 and 207 and record facts and opinions from the text on our chart FactOpinion

52 It’s your turn to practice… Copy the chart below on a sheet of paper. Then, read page 208 and write down one fact and one opinion that you find. FactOpinion

53 Vocabulary Review  Babble: Would a baby or an adult be more likely to babble? Explain. Does someone who babbles make sense?  Suspicious: What clues would make you suspicious that your sister was borrowing your clothes without asking? Are you suspicious of new foods? Why?  Scent: What is your favorite scent in the kitchen? Is there a scent that brings back a good memory? Tell about it.

54 Vocabulary Review (Continued)  Wanders: Is someone who wanders down the street likely to be in a hurry to get somewhere? Explain. Would it be sensible to wander away in the woods? Why or why not?  Whined: would your mother let you stay up past your bedtime if you whined to her? Explain. Is whining a good way to get what you want? Explain.  Obey: what is an important classroom rule that you must obey? Why should people who use the roads obey rules?

55 MORE vocabulary… Demonstrate: What skills might people demonstrate in a talent show? What skill could you demonstrate? Patrol: Why would a mother cat patrol the area around her kittens? Who patrols in school?

56 STILL more vocabulary… Accompany: Does someone accompany you to school? Who is it? Have you accompanied a pet to the vet? Tell about it. Competent: Why would you want someone competent to build your house? Should all workers be competent? Explain.

57 Synonyms and Antonyms  Remember that a synonym is a word with the same meaning and an antonym is a word with the opposite meaning.  Thinking about synonyms and antonyms will help you figure the meaning of unfamiliar words.  Look at the sentence below from “Animals and Their Trainers” as I read it aloud. Mr. Ramirez doesn’t punish. He wants the animals to have a good time. When the animals does what it’s supposed to do, it gets a reward.  If I did not know the meaning of the word punish, I could read on to see its antonym, reward.

58 Synonyms and Antonyms 1. The raindrops were glistening on the leaves. They looked like shining diamonds. (shining; synonym) 2. Do not ignore your homework. When you neglect to practice, your grades go down. (ignore; synonym) 3. Over time, Thomas learned the math concepts and eventually he earned an A. (over time; synonym)

59 Draw a chart like the following one on your paper. We will fill in the chart as we read a paragraph in a moment. SynonymAntonym rebuked smirked hoodwinked

60 Ms. Jolly praised Jared for his hard work. Last week she had rebuked him for not completing his paper. Then he had smirked. Now he smiled. Last week he thought he had hoodwinked her, but she knew that he had tricked her. SynonymAntonym rebuked smirked hoodwinked

61 Grammar Proper nouns name particular people, animals, places, or things. A proper noun begins with a capital letter. Officer Mike can talk to Aero in different ways. Find the proper nouns in the sentence above and explain how you know they are proper nouns. Officer Mike; Aero: They begin with capital letters. ***Titles like Officer, Doctor, Dr., Mr., Miss, Ms., Mrs. are titles and are part of the person’s name. They are always capitalized.

62 Grammar Look through page 211 of “Aero and Officer Mike” and identify the proper nouns you see. Aero, Dr. Morse Don’t get confused by the words that are capitalized because they are at the beginning of a sentence. Proper nouns are capitalized because they name a special person, place, animal, or thing.

63 You turn with grammar… Write your own sentence that uses two proper nouns. Remember to use correct capitalization. When you finish, trade papers with your partner and let your partner find the proper nouns and circle them.

64 How-To Paragraph writing Remember that how-to writing gives the reader detailed information about how to do or make something. For some activities, they might need something to be a particular size or shape. Some how-to paragraphs might include measurements or dimensions that tell the reader exactly what size and shape something should be. Also remember that how-to paragraphs have a topic sentence that names (tells) the project. First, I want you to write a topic sentence telling what you will be teaching your reader to do in your how-to paragraph. Remember to use the activity you chose yesterday. Then, I want you to write the step-by-step instructions in paragraph form. Include all the details you can think of as you write and order the steps correctly. *****Remember that it is easier for your reader to understand shorter sentences that only contain one step. ****

65 Question of the Day for Lesson 7, Day 4 MANY people have dogs for pets. Think about dogs you know. How do their owners feel about them? What things do the owners and their dogs do together? Why do you think dogs are such good friends to people? Complete the following sentence in you Reading Folder: Dogs are our good friends because____________________.

66 Domestic Dogs Dogs that live with humans are called domestic dogs. Centuries ago, these animals were bred, or raised from wolves. Owners of domestic dogs found that the animals could be easily trained to hunt, to herd other animals, and to guard homes. These days, dogs are most often companions. People have dogs as pets because they are affectionate and loyal. Pet dogs still guard homes, but now they bark at the mail carrier, not a dangerous animal. Dogs are very intelligent. Because they can recognize their owners and even communicate with them, dogs and their owners become very close friends. Most dog owners thing their dogs are the best animals in the world.

67 Digraphs ch, tch, sh and wh whenwhatwhere What consonant pattern do all three of these words share? /(h)w/ This sound is like you are blowing the w away. It is different from a regular w sound.

68 Digraphs tch, ch, sh and wh Look at the underlined letters in each word and tell me the sound they represent 1. wheatsheetpoach 2. cheapshowwheel Notice that all these words have long vowel sounds. Please name the vowel sounds and the letters that represent them. 3. Which ship will you catch? What sounds do each of the underlined combinations represent?

69 Digraphs continued… I want you to copy each of the following sentences on your paper. Then I want you to underline the /ch/, /sh/, and /(h)w/ letter combinations. You will then read the sentences to your partner. 1. When did you make the bed with peach sheets? 2. My teacher asked why I liked to draw. 3. Where can we see the new chip machine?

70 chinsharpwhere Notice that in chin and sharp, the h and the consonant before it stand for one sound. In where, the h is silent. Look at the word wear. It is pronounced the same as where, but it is spelled differently. ***Be careful when spelling /w/ words because you cannot tell by sound which words use w and which use wh. These are words you must memorize in order to spell them correctly.

71 Fluency Remember that good readers, like you, pay attention to the way they read aloud so that they sound natural, or like they are just talking. Natural pauses and breaks are necessary when reading so that the listener knows when one phrase ends and the next begins. Reading with appropriate phrasing means:  Paying attention to punctuation marks,  Organizing words into natural phrases that make meaning clear,  And reading smoothly, clearly, and with expression.

72 Fluency  As I read page 202 of “Aero and Officer Mike”, I will pay attention to the punctuation marks so I know where the author intended that I pause. I’ll read together words that make one idea.  It is very early in the morning. Everyone in the house is still asleep. A large black-and-tan German shepherd is lying on the floor by Officer Mike’s bed. The alarm rings. Officer Mike reaches down to pet his dog, Aero.  Aero is a police dog, also know as a K-9 officer. When Officer Mike puts on his uniform with a silver badge on his chest, Aero jumps up, ready to have his wide black leather collar with a police badge on it slipped over his head. He knows that this will be a work day.

73 Fluency continued Look back at the hyphens (-) between the words black-and-tan. These help the reader know to read these three words together with the words German shepherd. Notice the commas in the second paragraph, which is written below. Listen closely as I model reading using the commas to guide me. Aero is a police dog, also known as a K-9 officer. When Officer Mike puts on his uniform with a silver badge on his chest, Aero jumps up, ready to have his wide black leather collar with a police badge on it slipped over his head. He knows this will be a work day.

74 Fact and Opinion Who can explain to me the difference between a fact and an opinion? A fact is a statement that you can see or prove. An opinion tells beliefs, thoughts, or feelings about a topic. Knowing the difference between facts and opinions can help a reader figure out what is true and what is not true in a selection. Facts and opinions also help readers form their own opinions about the topic.

75 I want you to read the following passage and look for facts and opinions. When Shawna turned eight, her aunt gave her a cat named Sugarcube. Shawna thought Sugarcube was the best cat in the world, but her parents did not agree. Sugarcube always jumped on the kitchen table, where she was not supposed to be. She also liked to sharpen her claws on the furniture. One day, Sugarcube scratched a huge gash in the family’s new couch. They told her that she needed to train Sugarcube. Shawna got right to work. She took books out of the library and looked on the Internet for tips about how to train a cat. She read that scratching posts can help keep cats from scratching furniture, so she bought one for Sugarcube. Immediately, Sugarcube stopped scratching the couch and started sharpening her claws on the new post. Shawna’s research also told her that a spray bottle of water can help make a cat behave. Most cats dislike water, so squirting Sugarcube with the spray bottle kept her off the table. Shawna’s parents were pleased with the changes and now they love Sugarcube too. What is a fact in the passage? What is Shawna’s opinion of Sugarcube? Reread page 208 and tell me what Officer Mike’s opinion is about how Aero does during training.

76 Review Locating information  Let’s review the basic text features that we might find in a book.  Title page: gives the book title and the author’s and illustrator’s names  Copyright page: gives information about who published the book and when and where it was published  Table of contents: shows how a book is organized and where chapters begin  Glossary: lists words and definitions from a book.  Index: lists important words, topics, or people in alphabetical order and is found at the end of the book  Captions: explain photographs, illustrations, or other visual aids  Headings: describe what information can be found in a section of text.  When you gather information from a book to write a report, you will record the information from the title page and copyright page.

77 Look at page 200. Notice that this selection uses headings to break up the text and to tell about different sections. I want you to use the headings to answer these questions: Which page talks about Aero’s training? Which page talks about how to properly pet a police dog?

78 Speaking and Listening I would like to have some volunteers to read the poems from “It’s About Dogs”. First, though, I want to share some preparation tips with you.  Copy the poem and mark places where you should pause (You can use / marks.). Use a different kind of mark to show where your voice or tone should change.  Read the poem to yourself three times, and ask about any words you do not know how to pronounce. I also want you to practice the following speaking strategies:  Practice reading the poem to yourself at your desk so that you feel comfortable with it.  Pause at punctuation marks.  Speak clearly when you read aloud.  You should always make eye contact with your audience before you start reading (Look at your audience.). During group work today, I want these volunteers to copy the poem and write the / marks where you should pause. Also practice reading it aloud using these speaking strategies we just discussed. Everyone else will have a different assignment for reading group work. We will listen to the volunteers present at the end of reading class this morning.

79 Listeners, LISTEN UP! There are also some strategies for good listeners.  Compare how each student reads the poem. Think about how each person’s tone is like other students’ and how it is different.  Listen to what the reader is saying.  Think about how the reader’s tone and fluency help you understand the poem.
