Class experience

US Grade 1 - 4
This class is taught in English.
My classes are largely focused on higher thinking skills. By engaging with the novel actively, the students will focus on characterization, plot structure, conflict, and themes, as they make connections between the novel and their lives. They will develop critical thinking skills and presentation skills.

Ontario (Canadian) Curriculum:

1.4 demonstrate understanding of a variety of texts by summarizing important ideas and citing supporting details

1.5 make inferences about texts using stated and implied ideas from the texts as evidence

1.6 extend understanding of texts by connecting the ideas in them to their own knowledge, experience, and insights, to other familiar texts, and to the world around them

1.7 analyse texts and explain how specific elements in them contribute to meaning (e.g., narrative: characters, setting, main
idea, problem/challenge and resolution, plot development

1.8 express opinions about the ideas and information in texts and cite evidence from the text to support their opinions

2.3 communicate in a clear, coherent manner, presenting ideas, opinions, and information in a readily understandable form

2.4 identify various elements of style – including alliteration, descriptive adjectives and adverbs, and sentences of different types, lengths, and structures – and explain how they help communicate meaning (e.g., alliteration and rhythm can emphasize ideas or help convey a mood or sensory impression)

American Common Core Standards:

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.4.1

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.5.4
Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative language such as metaphors and similes.

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.SL.4.1
Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade 4 topics and texts, building on others' ideas and expressing their own clearly.

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.SL.4.1.A
Come to discussions prepared, having read or studied required material; explicitly draw on that preparation and other information known about the topic to explore ideas under discussion.

Follow agreed-upon rules for discussions and carry out assigned roles.

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.SL.4.1.C

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.SL.4.4

Assessments Offered
Grades Offered
I will provide each student with a copy of what they need to read and do each week.
The ending is not at all realistic and is very comical but this story revolves around a crocodile who wants to eat some children, so it may not be suitable for sensitive children. I will try to make it clear throughout that he will not be successful so the children do not become frightened.
Each student should have their own copy of The Enormous Crocodile by Roald Dahl.
