Use reading comprehension strategies to help children understand Relationships and reading data sources. Create a bound book with their own Problem Solving Stories.
Objectives:
 Children will: Write and solve addition number sentences. Learn about story elements, including setting, characters, problem, solution and ending. Apply their knowledge of story elements trough simple sentences and drawings, and symbolic language. Apply strategies learned in oral expression to reading and writing Record finished stories, creating a )) using Power point. Share their book and slide show with others.
Materials:
 Green Marker, a board. Flash Cards Simple Story Problems Box www.lakeshorelearning.com Staple less Book Format http://www.readwritethink.org/materials/stapleless/index.html Seussville Web Site http://www.seussville.com/games_hb/storymaker/story_maker.html for extended activity.
Introduction:
  Talk and demostrate addition situations,Use these questions to guide comprenhension of the problem before children give the answer to the problem. What do you need to find? What do you know?Help children to talk it out, then write the addition sentences. Example: 3 children play at the playground. Then 4 more children join them. How many children are playing at the playground in all? The words join and in all tell us that we are going to add. On the board, write join and in all. Look for these words in the problem. Underline them in green. Circle the numbers that we are going to add togheter.
Development:
 Provide a Sentence Stems. Write in the board, a Sentece Frame to help children structure their answers. To write a story about a fishes, Luis had______fishes, ___ . Luis found _____ more fishes. How many ladybugs had Luis in all?
Practice:
 Children will create a bound book using the Staple Less Book Format http://www.readwritethink.org/materials/stapleless/index.html , with the teacher help the student will write the Title, The Author name, and will write their Story Problems.
Accommodations:
 Considerations for ELL Beginning ( Level 1) Encourage each child to join a partner. Say,Join a friend. Say I joined ( child's name). Intermidiate ( Levels 2-3) Have one child ask another to jin him or her. Sample question: Luis will you join me? Have the cecond child tell what happened. sample answer I joined Luis.
