3 Teacher Information The text at the top of each slide in BLUE is suggested TEACHER TALKING POINTS. Feel free to adapt and modify to meet your students’ needs. Some slides are ANIMATED (i.e., when you click to move a slide forward more information is added to the current slide). It is helpful to have a remote slide advancer.

4 Lesson 4: The Storm Students will: write Where Topic Sentences. create a descriptive attribute chart to describe a picture of a storm. Materials: Whiteboards and dry erase markers Post It Notes Student Workbook

5 Uses precise language (tulip instead of flower; mansion instead of home) Includes strong verbs (She raced to the park. He gulped down his lunch.) Uses transitions (Before, During, After... In front of, Behind, Beside) and sentence variation (combines choppy sentences, revises repetitive sentence starts) Makes comparisons (fast as lightning... hair like silk... hotter than burning coal) Uses words that engage and surprise the reader (enormous shrimp; muscles bigger than a mountain) Generates attribute charts to develop and sort ideas and details for descriptive writing. Organizes descriptions either by time, visual field (left to right; top to bottom; small to large; large to small), or procedure. Writes topic sentences that orient and engage the reader. Writes concluding sentences that use a concluding word or phrase, give advice, or summarize the description. Includes descriptive words and details (see, hear, movement, taste, composition, age, size, location, etc.) COMPOSING SKILLS ORGANIZING SKILLS Take our your Descriptive Writing Skill Sheet and put an X next to “Generates attribute charts...” and “Writes topic sentences that orient and engage the reader.”

6 One way to engage and orient the reader is to tell the reader WHERE what you’re describing took place. There are lots of ways to write WHERE topic sentences. Let me give you some examples. WRITING WHERE TOPIC SENTENCES On the playground Across the street Inside our classroom WHEREWHAT HAPPENED children played handball. we practiced writing. dogs howled.

7 In the school gym.... Across the train tracks... Inside our classroom... At the my friend’s pool... Next to the creek... On the soccer field... Outside my bedroom window... WRITING WHERE TOPIC SENTENCES On our writing bulletin board, I have placed several examples of how to write WHERE Topic Sentences. Watch me write some WHERE Topic Sentences for the picture on the next slide.

8 WHEREWHAT HAPPENED On the big island of Hawaiithe volcano erupted. Next to grandpa’s sugar cane fieldI heard the volcano rumble. In the school gym.... Across the train tracks... Inside our classroom... At the my friend’s pool... Next to the creek... On the soccer field... Outside my bedroom window... WHERE TOPIC SENTENCES

9 Where What Happened On your whiteboards copy this organizer. I’m going to show you several pictures. With your black marker, describe where the action in the picture is taking place. With your red marker write what happened.

10 WhereWhat Happened The City In the school gym.... Across the train tracks... Inside our classroom... At the my friend’s pool... Next to the creek... On the soccer field... Outside my bedroom window... WHERE TOPIC SENTENCES Share your topic sentence with your neighbor.

11 WhereWhat Happened The Amusement Park Share your topic sentence with your neighbor. In the school gym.... Across the train tracks... Inside our classroom... At the my friend’s pool... Next to the creek... On the soccer field... Outside my bedroom window WHERE TOPIC SENTENCES

12 WhereWhat Happened The Storm In the school gym.... Across the train tracks... Inside our classroom... At the my friend’s pool... Next to the creek... On the soccer field... Outside my bedroom window WHERE TOPIC SENTENCES Share your topic sentence with your neighbor.

13 Remember, we have two writing goals today. 1.Write Where Topic Sentences. 2.Generate descriptive attributes. Today you are going to create an Attribute Chart to describe this picture, The Storm.

14 The Storm Attribute Chart HearSeeLocation MovementTemperature Open your workbook to The Storm Attribute Chart. I’m passing out very very small Post It Notes to each table. Please share them.

15 cold wet 40 degrees icy winds black rain clouds HearSeeLocationMovementTemperature As I look at the picture, I’ll write some ideas for the attribute, TEMPERATURE. Watch and listen as I think and record ideas on my Post It, and stick the ideas under the TEMPERATURE column on my Attribute Chart.

16 Directions 1.At your table study the picture, The Storm. 2.On your own, write down one descriptive words on a small Post It for each attribute. USE YOUR IMAGINATION! 3.Pass your Attribute Chart to the person on your left. 4.That person will study your Attribute Chart and add one more descriptive word for each attribute. 5.Return the Attribute Charts.

17 Here’s the picture. Begin writing your details in your attribute chart.

18 The Storm Attribute Chart HearSeeLocation MovementTemperature Let’s have some students share the descriptive words and ideas they generated. I’ll write them on the class Storm Attribute Chart.

19 Lesson 5: The Storm Students will: use their Storm Attribute Chart to compose a paragraph frame that contains a topic sentence, and sentences describing the TOP, MIDDLE & BOTTOM of the picture, The Storm. Materials: Highlighters Scissors Student Workbook

20 WhereWhat Happened Topic Sentence Top Attributes Middle Attributes Bottom Attributes Concluding Sentence The Storm Paragraph Frame Share with your partner why you think we are using a paragraph frame.

21 Uses precise language (tulip instead of flower; mansion instead of home) Includes strong verbs (She raced to the park. He gulped down his lunch.) Uses transitions (Before, During, After... In front of, Behind, Beside) and sentence variation (combines choppy sentences, revises repetitive sentence starts) Makes comparisons (fast as lightning... hair like silk... hotter than burning coal) Uses words that engage and surprise the reader (enormous shrimp; muscles bigger than a mountain) Generates attribute charts to develop and sort ideas and details for descriptive writing. Organizes descriptions either by time, visual field (left to right; top to bottom; small to large; large to small), procedure, or details. Writes topic sentences that orient and engage the reader. Writes concluding sentences that use a concluding word or phrase, give advice, or summarize the description. Includes descriptive words and details (see, hear, movement, taste, composition, age, size, location, etc.) COMPOSING SKILLS ORGANIZING SKILLS Take our your Descriptive Writing Skill Sheet. Put an X next to “Organizes descriptions either by time, visual field, procedure or details.” Paragraph frames help us organize our writing so our writing makes sense.

22 Making Chocolate Chip Cookies Place the baking pans in the oven and bake. Cook for 20 minutes and take cookies out of oven. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix butter and eggs with the dry ingredients. Scoop one tablespoon of cookie dough onto a baking sheet one inch apart. In a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients of flour, baking soda, and salt. If your descriptions aren’t organized, readers get confused. These directions for baking cookies are out of order. With a partner, cut out the directions, then organize the sentences into an order that will result in good tasting cookies.

23 WhereWhat Happened Topic Sentence Top Attributes Middle Attributes Bottom Attributes Concluding Sentence The Storm Descriptive Paragraph Frame Like a recipe, your descriptions need to be organized to help the reader understand. Paragraph frames help us organize our writing.

24 WhereWhat Happened Topic Sentence Top Attributes Middle Attributes Bottom Attributes Watch me use this frame to write. I’ll start with my Topic Sentence. Look at the picture. Choose a Where Topic Sentence starter. Write a Topic Sentence. Outsidethere was a storm. In the school gym.... Across the train tracks... Inside our classroom... At the my friend’s pool... Next to the creek... On the soccer field... Outside my bedroom window WHERE TOPIC SENTENCES

The end. The Storm What’s wrong with the ending? Last night I used the sentences in my paragraph frame to write a paragraph about The Storm. Let’s read it.

34 1. Tell how you feel Example - When I saw that my robot worked, I was proud of all the effort I put into building it. 2. Summarize the main point Example - Mammals have hair, are warm blooded and are born alive. 3. Offer Advice Example - Wearing a helmet when you ride your bike will protect you if an accident happens. 4. Challenge the reader to think Example - If a tornado were to strike your home, make a list of the things you need to be prepared. 5. Ask a question Example - I love playing at the park, where do you like to play? 6. Use a concluding phrase or word Example - To sum up... In conclusion... All in all... Always... Everybody... Clearly... Obviously... Surely... In fact... No one 7. Encourage the reader to take action Example - One way you can prevent pollution is to recycle. 8. Convince the reader of your point Example - Clearly smoking is bad for your health. 9. Make a prediction Example - I think that if our school is full, they’ll use trailers for classrooms instead of sending children to a different school. Writing Conclusions Poster You can’t just write, The End! You need to conclude your paragraph. As you can see there are a lot of different ways to write conclusions. Let’s practice one!

35 Siti The Orangutan After being saved from people who kept her illegally as a pet, Siti the orangutan tried to crack open a coconut. Unable to do it, she handed it to the rescue worker. The worker handed it back because he was trying to teach Siti how to live on her own in the forest. Siti poked the coconut with a stick then gave it back to him. Again, the worker played dumb and handed the coconut back. Siti then picked up another stick and swung at the coconut as one would with a long knife. She showed the worker what she wanted him to do, something she’d seen him do many times. Conclusion #1 To sum up, Siti knew how to open the coconut, but didn’t want to do the work. Conclusion #2 Clearly, Siti was smart enough to open the coconut on her own. Conclusions Poster 6. Use a concluding phrase or word Example - To sum up... In conclusion... All in all... Always.. Everybody.. Clearly..Obviously.. Surely. In fact... No one Watch me Use a Concluding Word or Phrase to write a conclusion for this passage about Siti the Orangutan.

36 Directions 1.Open your writing workbook and read the paragraph about Elephant Problem Solvers. 2.I’m handing out one sentence strip. 3.Write a conclusion using the Concluding Phrase or Word approach on your sentence strip. 4.Pass your sentence strip to the person next to you. 5.Read that person’s concluding sentence, and write a different conclusion on the back.

37 Prairie Dog Warnings A prairie dog lifts its head in the air and screams the warning call of a coyote: Eeep! All the prairie dogs run and hide. Scientist Tom Flynn laughs. He’s been studying prairie dogs for one year, and has found that prairie dogs have warning calls for at least 10 different enemies such as hawks, elks, or humans. Each warning call is a different short loud sound. In all his time studying prairie dogs, Dr. Flynn has never heard a prairie dog make a mistake. Conclusion #1 Conclusion #2 Read the paragraph in your workbook titled, Prairie Dog Warnings. Individually write two different conclusions using the CONCLUDING PHRASE OR WORD approach in your workbook. Conclusions Poster 6. Use a concluding phrase or word Example - To sum up... In conclusion... All in all... Always.. Everybody.. Clearly. Obviously. Surely.. In fact... No one
