Kinder
Reader and Task Considerations
Chart new vocabulary words
throughout the unit. Encourage
students to use the new
vocabulary in their
conversations and in their
writing.
Students would benefit from listening to this story if you have a copy of the book with the illustrations. Without the pictures, it may be difficult for students
to realize that Max continues to have to go back to the store because he keeps knocking over the ingredients. If you don’t have the book and you need to
read the book from the teacher edition, be sure to clarify what may be happening as you read. For example, students need to infer that Max was sent to the
store because he dropped the eggs, whereas the illustrations show that this is what happened. There is also a reading of the book with illustrations on
youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBJk9ObICHI
Preparing for the Unit: Tell students that in this unit, they will be reading and learning about how to stick to something to accomplish a goal. Explain that this
is called perseverance and many of the stories they will be reading about have characters who try to accomplish their goals by continuing to try until they
succeed.
As an introduction to the unit theme, watch the two suggested videos on hard-work and perseverance. (Not all teachers may have access to these videos. If
this is the case, watching the videos are not necessary)
Overcoming Obstacles – Steven Claunch http://larryferlazzo.edublogs.org/2013/08/24/this-is-the-best-video-ive-seen-on-perseverance-resiliencetheres-no-dishonor-in-having-a-disability/
Amazing Kids of Character: Portraits of Perseverance http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7vouKO84oI&safe=active
Have the students share their thoughts about the two videos.
Building on the theme: What goal would you like to accomplish by the end of the unit? Give students time to think of something they are currently not able to
do or something they need to work on. Have the students set a goal that they would like to accomplish by the end of the unit and what they plan on doing
to accomplish this goal. (Examples could be learning how to ride your bike, passing a particular sight word list, learning how to tie shoes, being kind to
others...) Encourage students to use drawings as well as written words.

Read the entire text. You may want to stop a few times for students to predict what may happen next or if you don’t have the book with the illustrations,
you may have to stop to clarify what happens to make Max have to go back to the store.
Reread for Comprehension
Tell students that the main character is the person (or animal) that the story is mostly about. There is a lot you can learn about a character by paying close
attention to their actions throughout a story. Tell students as you reread you want them to pay close attention to the characters in the story, the setting, who has
the problem, and what events led up to the character solving that problem. Begin a Tree Map with the branches “Characters, Setting, Problem, Major Events.”

Provide single pictures of objects and pictures that show multiple of the same object. An example would be to have a picture of a single pumpkin and a
picture of multiple pumpkins. (The OCR picture box has many of these type pictures). Using a Pocket Chart, sort the pictures into two categories (Singular
and Plural).
Prepare ahead of time the correct singular and plural spelling for each picture. Explain to students that an s is usually added to plural nouns. Have students
help you match the correct spelling to each picture.
Reread the text Bunny Cakes and have students listen closely for plural nouns (eggs, Squirters, candles, stars, hearts, roses).
During workshop, have students sort singular nouns and plural nouns.

Days 4-7
Vocabulary
turnip, enormous
Chart new vocabulary words
throughout the unit. Encourage
students to use the new
vocabulary in their conversations
and in their writing.
Theme Connections
This story illustrates the value of “sticking to it” as it tells of an old man’s attempt to pull a giant turnip from the ground.
Reader and Task Considerations
•
Students may not be familiar with a turnip. You may want to consider bringing one in to show the class.
•
Remind students of the different types of texts they have been exposed to this year (storybooks, poems,
informational books). Tell students that the Great Big Enormous Turnip is similar to a storybook but it is
a Russian folktale. A folktale is a story that has been passed down from generation to generation.
Folktales contain things that are not real (e.g. animals that act like humans, unusual things happen).
•
As you read additional read alouds throughout this unit that are not related to this theme, be sure to ask
questions about the characters, setting, and major events.
•
Set a class goal and record and complete a one-sided Multi-Flow Map similar to the one on the right.

Focus of Instruction: Reading and Responding to Text and Vocabulary Acquisition
First Read
Point out that although this story is fictional, it shows how important “sticking to it” can be in solving a problem.
Read the title and author.
Read the entire text, stopping minimally for students to practice their predicting skills. To reinforce print and book awareness, use a pointer or your
finger to track the print as you read.
Reread for Comprehension
TDQ’s (Character, Setting, Major Events)
•
Tell the students to listen closely as you reread to find out who has a problem, what the problem is, and the events that lead to the solution.
Place students in small collaborative groups to discuss the characters, setting, and problem. While engaging in discussions with partners and small
groups, remind students to not only follow the agreed-upon rules (listening to others, taking turns speaking, and continuing a conversation through
multiple exchanges) but to ask questions in order to seek help, get information, or clarify something that is not understood.
Once students had time to discuss in their groups, begin a Tree Map to record the Characters, Setting, and the Problem in the story. How do the
other characters add to the story?
How did the old man “stick to it” and show perseverance? What are some of the things he did to try to pull up the turnip? Flow Map to record the
sequence of events that led him to accomplish this goal (see Tree Map on next page)
Additional TDQ’s
¿Qué frase se repite una y otra vez en el cuento?
Tell students that sometimes the illustrations provide information the text does not. Paying close attention to the illustrations will help you learn more about
the story and help the reader understand more about what may be happening. Ask the students the following questions about the illustrations:
¿Qué revelaron las ilustraciones sobre los personajes o el escenario que no se escribió en palabras?
¿Qué estaba haciendo la viejita cuando el hombre la llamo? ¿Qué estaba haciendo la hija?

para que el lector pueda tener un mejor entendimiento del punto que está tratando de hacer. Aunque palabras tengan un significado similar, a veces una
palabra en particular puede tener un impacto más fuerte. ¿Por ejemplo, la palabra crees que describe mejor el nabo: grande o enorme? ¿Cuáles son
algunas otras palabras que significan algo similar a grande? (gigante, enorme).
Have the students order the words according to their intensity (weakest to strongest).
Encourage students to act out some of the words and their differences.
Give students sentences and have them decide which word would make the most sense in each sentence. Begin
a Shades of Meaning chart and add to the chart as you gather more words that have different shades of

Read to Gather Evidence/Information and Respond to Text
Focus Question: ¿En qué se parecía Max al hombre viejo?
Test Drive (for teachers only): Max and the old man were alike. First, they were both hard-working.
They didn’t give up when they first didn’t succeed. Max and the old man were both able to achieve
their goals because of their determination.
Gather evidence using a Double Bubble. You may want to revisit the Bubble Maps that

Focus of Instruction: Language Conventions and Narrative Writing
Puedo agregar una “s” o “es” Language Conventions (Plural Nouns)
para hacer una palabra
Explain that some plural nouns are written by adding an “es” to the end of the word. Words that end with an s, ss, ch, sh, z, zz, or x usually have an “es”
plural y pronunciar cada una added to make it plural. Provide a chart with the ending spellings that require an “es”
correctamente. (L.K.1.c)
Write several singular nouns on the board and have the students help you write the plural form of the word by
adding an s or es. Have students refer to the chart if necessary (dog, box, church, school, dress, wish, bench,
flower, box, paper, bus, peach, glass, dish, bird, book). Create a Tree Map to record the spellings of the singular
and plural spellings.
Have students orally practice using the plural from of each word.
Write several plural forms of nouns on index cards. Be sure to write some plural forms correctly and some
incorrectly. Have students give a thumbs up or a thumbs down depending if the word is spelled correctly or not.

Narrative Writing (Imaginative)
Create a one-sided Multi-Flow to explain why The Great Big Enormous Turnip is an
imaginative narrative. Earlier we talked about Folktales containing unusual things that
happen or animals that act like humans (reader and task considerations). What examples
from The Great Big Enormous Turnip have these characteristics?
Model with a “What if” statement. EX: What if...you planted something and it grew big and
enormous?”
Follow up with questions to build the imaginative narrative such as:
¿Cómo se vería? (el personaje)
¿Cómo se vería la habitación? (el entorno)
¿Qué haría/harías/harías? (acontecimiento y reacción)
Model drawing characters, setting, situation or event, and a reaction
Model writing a sentence telling the situation with the reaction.
Have students create imaginative narratives in their “Imaginative Narrative Journals.”

other words. Tell the students that they will revisit some of the words the author Leo Lionni used in Tillie and the Wall.

order these words according to their intensity (weakest to strongest). Be sure to engage students in a discussion as to why they think
one word is weaker/stronger than another.

Performance Task: Read Aloud, Individual Tree Map, Group Discussion, and Writing
Days 19-21
Kinder
Performance Task:
For this task, the teacher will read aloud JoJo’s Flying Side Kick from the OCR leveled classroom library (or an alternative picture book with the main character demonstrating perseverance).
Students will work independently to complete a Tree Map by drawing the main character, setting, and the problem (what JoJo wants to accomplish). Students will then choose the three major
events that led the character (JoJo) to be successful. In groups, students will discuss their ideas and create a Bubble Map to describe the main character. The goal is NOT to produce perfectly made
maps but to provide the teacher with an opportunity to observe what students understand about character, setting, and major events. Students will then independently write to answer the
question: What did JoJo do to accomplish her goal?
Day One
Teacher Input:
“Throughout this unit we read about many different characters that showed perseverance to accomplish a goal. We have discussed character traits that contributed to each character’s success and
used evidence to support our answers. We have also discussed the setting, problem, and the events that led up to the solution (or accomplishment). I am going to read JoJo’s Flying Side Kick aloud
to you. While I read, I want you to listen closely for who is the main character, where and when the story takes place, and what is the problem in the story. When I am done reading, you will
complete the Tree Map like the ones we have been doing throughout the unit. (Show students the blank Tree Map from page 23. (You may want to consider giving students large newsprint to make
their own Tree Map)
Teacher Instructions:

2 Read: Reread the book all the way through without stopping.
Provide students with the Tree Maps they started yesterday and the pictures from the story (provided on page 24). Tell the students to choose the three major events that led JoJo to
be successful and glue them in the correct order on the Flow Map under “events” (provide scaffolding if necessary).
Day Three
Teacher Input:
“Today you will share your maps with others. As you engage in a discussion about the characters, setting, problem, and events that led the main character to be successful, you can make changes
and/or add additional information to your maps. Together as a group you will then create a Bubble Map with words to describe the main character. When you are done discussing in your groups,
you will answer the question in your Listening and Learning Log: Why was Jojo successful in breaking the board? (Possible answers: she was persistent, she was a hard worker, she was determined,
she practiced, her granddaddy taught her how to move with her feet, her mom taught her how to get a picture in her mind, P.J. taught her how to yell at the top of her lungs)
Teacher Instructions
Place students in groups to share their maps. Provide a blank Bubble map or have groups create their own. Using the collaborative checklist, use this opportunity to step back and
observe what the groups can do without support.
Give students time to answer the question in their Listening and Learning Logs.

Imaginative Narrative Writing Task
Kindergarten
Drawing and Writing
Teacher Instructions
• Gather your students as you do before a modeled-journal writing lesson. Have your blank piece of paper with the line drawn next to you. Tell
the class that they will write an imaginative narrative (provide students with a What if...prompt of your choosing). Describe but DO NOT draw a
picture that would go with the prompt. Tell what you would write but DO NOT write your sentences. Then help your students generate some
ideas by talking about the different things that could happen based on the prompt.
• Point to your blank paper and say, “¿A quién dibujarías en tu dibujo? ¿Qué detalles podrías incluir en tu escenario? ¿Qué podrías escribir?
¿Podrías dar otra oración sobre eso?”
• Allow several students to share their ideas in front of the group and with partners.
Teacher directions to students for drawing/writing: (These are reminders you can give students before they write. Feel free to modify the
instructions to say what you normally do.)
• “Do your best work. In your picture be sure to include lots of details in the setting and characters. Make sure your characters are doing
something. When you write your story, be sure to start your sentences with a capital letter, use a period at the end, and leave good spaces
between your words. Use the sight words that you know and if you don’t know how to spell a word, use the sound spelling cards and the words
around the room.”
• Once students begin to write, do not prompt them or provide help on spelling. This is an assessment of what students can do independently.
Scoring: Students’ drawing and writing will be assessed using a district-developed Kindergarten rubric for narrative writing.
