Vocabulary Introduction https://quizlet.com/46600193/journeys-grade-3-lesson-8-the-harvest-birds-flash-cards/


Target Skills : Conclusion As you read The Harvest Birds , look for details about events and characters in the story. Use these details to draw conclusion , or figure out what the author means but does not directly state. Use a chart like this one to record text evidence. Describe your conclusions and list the details that helped you draw them


Target Skills: Infer/Predict Use your conclusions to Infer or figure out, the message of this story. Predict what the author wants to teach readers through the story.


Previewing the Topic Our world is made up of many cultures. Groups of people who share a way of life have their own culture. It includes language, music, art, and food. Each culture also has traditions. These are beliefs and actions that have been followed and passed down from one generation to the next. Folktales are part of a culture’s traditions. These stories explain the world in some way or teach people how to behave. The Harvest Birds is a Mexican folktale. In this story, the main character learns lessons about nature, farming, and even about himself.


Previewing the Topic Think-Pair-Share


1 ST Read of Anchor Text Folktales are stories that tell about a culture’s customs. The illustrations show a main character who works hard and seems to have a relationship with nature and birds. I also think that the plot of this folktale will teach me a lesson.


1 st Read of Anchor Text As good readers preview the story & think about what they know about the genre and what they hope to enjoy about the story to set their purpose for reading. When I previewed the folktale, I noticed the illustrations. I think the main character is shown on the title page. In a folktale, the author uses the main character to show something about a culture and its values. I’ll read to learn about Mexican culture and values. .


Teacher Read A Loud Students will stop and write predictions or ask questions and then go back and revise predictions or answer questions.


Daily Proofreading Red, orange and yellow are warm colors they are the colors of the autum . Red, orange, and yellow are warm colors. T hey are the colors of the autumn. h ow do you ran so fast How do you run so fast?


Grammar: Commas in a Series How will I know where to put the commas? I can ask: Are there three or more words listed together in the sentence? The second sentence says Anne, Marie, and TJ do not like beets. There are three people who don’t like beets, so I put a comma after each of the first two names. Without the first comma, we might think Anne Marie was one girl’s name.

Day 2


Opening Routine T hink of two words to describe Juan from the story The Harvest Birds.


Phonics S ome pairs of consonants include a silent letter. Two of these pairs are kn and wr . Which cconsonant is silent in each pair ? I know which word it is. I will write the silent letter . Can you pick out the silent letters in each sentence? Can you suggest other words for the kn and wr spellings?

Dig Deeper conclusion a smart guess based on story details literal meaning the exact meaning of a word nonliteral meaning the symbolic or figurative meaning of a word


Dig Deeper We have just read The Harvest Birds , a Mexican folktale. Let’s read Student Book p. 298. G ood readers use story details to help them draw conclusions , or make smart guesses, about the text. A n author may not always state everything directly in a story. In that case, they should look for details in the story that can help them draw conclusions about the author’s meaning. I can use this Inference Map to record details from the illustration and the text on page 286 that will help me draw a conclusion about what the townspeople really think about Juan’s news. The people in the illustration are laughing , but the text says that they are not happy for Juan. The carpenter, the blacksmith , and the baker all tell Juan to come work for them instead of plant his tiny field. These details tell me that they all think that Juan will fail .


Dig Deeper Now let’s read Student Book p. 299 Explain that an author can use words in different ways to tell a story. One way is to use a word’s literal meaning , or its exact meaning. Tell students that another way is to use a word’s nonliteral meaning. For example, on p. 297, Juan says that all plants are like brothers and sisters who become sad if they are separated. This makes the plants seem like characters in the story, too.


Turn and Talk Review the selection with a partner to discuss this question: What do traditional tales tell readers about life? As you discuss , listen to your partner’s ideas . Then explain your own ideas . Make sure to use evidence from The Harvest Birds to support your thoughts


Classroom Conversation Continue your discussion of The Harvest Birds by using text evidence to explain your answers to these questions: What does The Harvest Birds tell you about life? What do the townspeople learn about Juan? How does Juan teach readers about the importance of following a dream? Do you agree with Juan’s point of view? Explain.

Day 3


Opening Routine With your partner, discuss the different ways in which the words can be categorized. Why did you group the words the way you did ? What are some other words that could be added to the categories?


Phonics Remember that consonant pairs kn and wr have a silent letter. W hich letter is silent in each pair? W hen these letter pairs appear in the middle of a word, they usually stay together and begin a syllable. Let’s say these multisyllabic words, and identify which letter pair is found in the middle of each word: Shipwreck doorknob unwrap Handwritten unknown prewrite Can you identify the prefix and the base word in each of these words?


Phonics Let’s read these words together.


Vocabulary If you could have a small garden patch , what would you grow? What do you own that you would not like someone to borrow ? Why? What is a topic that you are always serious about? How do people usually look when they feel ashamed ? http:// www.studystack.com/flashcard-1292304


Fluency Let’s read the sentences one time through. Now this time let’s read the 1 st sentence again placing extra stress on the stressed syllables in many , believe, and unusual. Let’s repeat with Sentence 2, changing the stress to different words each reading. Reread sentence 3. Can you hear where we are applying stress? Now read Sentence 4 silently. What words do you think should be stressed? T ake turns reading Sentence 5 aloud. I challenge each partner to change syllable and word stress to alter the feeling of the sentence.


When you are reading today … Remember that your purpose is to read and comprehend literature . To make sure you are understanding what you are reading make sure you are doing the following: • Refer to details and examples to analyze a text independently . • Ask and answer questions about key details. • Choose a book to read independently based on its genre. • Read orally, placing stress on the correct words .


Applying Vocabulary Knowledge permanently: If something lasts permanently, it lasts forever. After proving he could grow food on the land, Grandpa Chon let Juan keep the land permanently. ample: Something that is ample is large in size or amount. Juan had an ample harvest of corn, squash, and beans. desired: If you desired something, you wanted it very much. Juan desired to have his own land to farm. refused: If you refused something, you turned it down. Grandpa Chon refused to give Juan land until he could prove himself.


Quick Write Listen as I read aloud each item below. Then using your white board, quickly write a response : ELA Name some items that permanently belong to a school. What is an ample amount of space to play a game of basketball? If someone desired to be part of a band, what could he or she do? Why might someone have refused to help with a chore?


Grammar: Using Commas Commas in Addresses Explain that commas are used to separate each part of an address. Remember the address parts are the person’s name, the street address, the city , and the state. Model identifying where to add commas to separate the parts of the following address : Mark Samuels 423 Palm Avenue Miami , Florida To figure out where to add commas, I look for the different parts of the address. I see the person’s name, his street address, the city, and the state. I should add a comma after each part, except the last. Write on the board: Mr. Kane once lived at 542 White Road Tarrytown New York . How do we correctly punctuate the sentence? Can you write a sentence that includes your full address, using commas correctly?

Connecting to the Topic The Treasure is a folktale about a poor man’s journey to find riches . A folktale reflects the customs and beliefs of the culture that created the story. As you read folktales, consider how the characters react to problems and how problems are solved . This will help you understand the lesson, or moral, of the folktale .


Text to Text How is our Anchor Text, The Harvest Birds , related to The Treasure? Think about the plots, settings, characters, and messages in the texts. Be sure to support your answers with evidence form both texts.


Vocabulary Strategies: Context Clues We have learned to use context as clues to determine the meanings of words. We can also use context clues to determine the literal or nonliteral meanings of words and phrases in a text. Remember: literal meaning - the exact meaning of a word nonliteral meaning - the symbolic or figurative meaning of a word context -the words and sentences around a word that give clues about a word’s meaning

Have you ever felt that if you had something else … a new house, new clothes, a new teacher, new parents … that your life would be different? How would your life be different? Would it necessarily be better?


Phonics This week we have focused on letter patterns with silent sounds, like / kn / and / wr /. See if you can think of a word that starts with these letter patterns that rhymes with the following words: Rock List Me Note Nestle Peel


Vocabulary http:// www.studystack.com/flashcard-1292304


Extend the Topic This week’s topic is traditions . These words can help them learn more about traditions. Why might people have different perspectives about the same issue? Why might someone make a pilgrimage to a special church or shrine? What is your perception of harvesting your own food?


Grammar: Commas https://www-k6.thinkcentral.com/content/hsp/reading/journeys2014/na/common/teacher_gateway_9780547934518_/ grade/grade3.html A comma tells a reader where to pause. A comma also helps make the meaning of a sentence clear . When you list three or more words together in a sentence , the list is called a series . Use commas to separate the words in a series. Another place that commas are needed is in writing a street address. Always use a comma between the name of a town and the state. If you are writing an address in a sentence, use a comma at the end of the street name as well.


Writing You are working on a opinion essay about allowing kids to have TV’s in their rooms. Most of you have finished your introduction, and it has 1-a hook, 2-the two opinions, and 3-your opinion. Now you are beginning your reason paragraphs. Remember that you need to have 2-3 reasons to support your opinion. Each one of those reasons needs to be supported with evidence from the article and have an explanation. Here is an example: One reason why I think kids should be able to have a TV in their bedroom is because there will be less stress. The article says that having a TV in a kid’s room can help the family not argue about what to watch. The less arguing in the house the happier everyone will be.
