Students continue reading, Stormalong and Hoderi the Fisherman, both folk tales.
Our target comprehension skill is “understanding characters.” Students learn to infer, predict and understand ‘point of view’ as they read.
Literary Device: Hyperbole. Students learn how hyperbole helps make tall tales like, Stormalong, interesting and humorous. Students also learn to identify and interpret examples of simile, personification and metaphor.
Fluency: Expression. As students read aloud, we practice using an expressive, loud, clear voice.
