 Book: The Cat in the Hat. Note on Nouns, Verbs and Adjectives. Book-"Sidewasy Stories from Wayside School" Overhead transparency for worksheets. (Last one for Chapter One and first one for Chapter Two). Overhead sheets from the Cat in the Hat.
 Teacher will: -pass out the short note that has been photocopied. -Ask the students to take a quick minute to glance over the sheet.
 Teacher will: -tell students you will be reading the first few pages from "The Cat in the Hat". -Read one page at a time. Teacher will: -Ask for volunteers to read some of their answers from the second sheet of Chapter One. -Aid students in elaborating on their answers by using descriptive works while helping students to further develop their sentence structures.
 After reading one page: Teacher will: -ask students to find the Nouns, Verbs and Adjectives. -have students volunteer their answers. Ask questions: -by a show of hands, how many of you have ever been left home alone? -how did you feel? -Why do you think that these two children have been left at home all alone? -What kinds of things could these children do to amuse themselves? -What kind of dangers may arise while they are alone? What sorts of precautions could they take to protect themselves while they are at home alone?
 Only have some students complete half of all questions on worksheets.
Checking For Understanding:
 Teacher will: -Try to call on students who do not have their hands up. Teacher will: -move around the room, checking on students work and helping out in answering questions that may arise.
 Teacher may ask: -Who here thinks that these children will sit alone by the window all day until their Mother comes home? Teacher will: -Remind students that their Chapter Two worksheet on Page #13 is due for Wednesday's Language Arts class.
 Teacher will: -Evaluate the answers of students, watching for elaboration and creativity in their answers. Also, when asking for nouns, verbs and adjectives, the teacher will make sure that students are accurate in their answers and therefore understanding the concepts.
Teacher Reflections:
 I would also evaluate students work by monitoring their progress during class work period. Teacher will also assess students areas for improvement while they are answering questions orally.
