Moorefor Grade 6, including EAL PHILLIP DONE A Close Reading ofThe Night Before Christmasby Clement C. Moorefor Grade 6, including EAL MARCH 1, 2020 Lesson Objectives: Lesson Objectives Students will be able to “close read” and annotate Clement C. Moore’s famous poem The Night Before Christmas. Lesson Objectives Lesson Objectives Students will be able to discuss and reflect on their “close read” and annotations with a peer. Lesson Objectives What is Close Reading?: What is Close Reading? Close Reading, as we discussed earlier this year, is a bit like digging for treasure. When digging for treasure, you don’t dig with your shovel only once. You dig several times. When close reading, you read the text multiple times, too. Close reading is also like being a detective with a magnifying glass. You look at the text closely to understand the ideas and words that the author wants you to know. What is Annotation?: What is Annotation? Annotation, as we have learned, basically means to mark up what you are reading. You can circle words, highlight them, underline them, make arrows, draw pictures, and write in the margins! When you’re done annotating, your paper should be full of marks and words. How Do We Annotate?: How Do We Annotate? Body Level One How Do We Annotate? Body Level Two How Do We Annotate? Body Level Three How Do We Annotate? Body Level Four How Do We Annotate? Body Level Five Circle new words you don’t understand then highlight the inside of the circles with yellow marker. If you’d like, you can also add a question mark.Draw smiley faces or hearts in the margins next to words or phrases you like, even if you don’t know what they mean.Illustrate words in the margins.Write definitions (in your own words) or synonyms for words in the margins, and draw arrows to these words. Modeling How We Annotate: Modeling How We Annotate Body Level One Modeling How We Annotate Body Level Two Modeling How We Annotate Body Level Three Modeling How We Annotate Body Level Four Modeling How We Annotate Body Level Five ’Twas the Night Before Christmas when all through the house,Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse,The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.The children were nestled all snug in their beds,While visions of sugarplums danced in their headsAnd mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,Had just settled down for a long winter’s nap. Guided Practice — Now it’s Your Turn: Guided Practice — Now it’s Your Turn Body Level One Guided Practice — Now it’s Your Turn Body Level Two Guided Practice — Now it’s Your Turn Body Level Three Guided Practice — Now it’s Your Turn Body Level Four Guided Practice — Now it’s Your Turn Body Level Five When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.The moon on the breast of the white fallen snow, gave a luster of midday to objects below.When what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer.With a little old driver so lively and quick,I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick. Independent Practice: Independent Practice Directions: Now, using your copy of the poem, please annotate the next two stanzas. You may work with a partner, if you wish. Reflecting with a Partner: Reflecting with a Partner After you have finished annotating your two stanzas, with a partner please ask each other the following questions: Reflecting with a Partner 1. What is your favorite part of annotating—highlighting, circling, drawing pictures? Reflecting with a Partner 2. Do you think annotating a text can help someone understand it better? Did annotating this poem help you? If so, how? Reflecting with a Partner 3. Let’s look at Moore’s word choice for a second. Why do you think he use stirring instead of moving? Why did he use miniature instead of small? Reflecting with a Partner 4. Do you think annotating the stanzas as we did today helped you to understand the poem better? Reflecting with a Partner 5. What language in the stanzas we have read today is the most vivid?
