Following Directions

Today's reading comprehension mini-lesson was about reading and following directions. It goes along with the Bruce McMillan story Salmon Summer. The story is about a young Aleut boy on Kodiak Island who learns the family tradition of fishing from his father.

The mini-lesson asked students to reread two pages that describe setting fishing traps and then work with me to create our own directions on...

how to catch crabs.

All I have to say is, I am SO HAPPY I only teach 4th graders. Phhewwww.

Thank goodness this lesson does not coincide with next week's lesson on multiple meaning words.
