Listening to Short Stories

Today we listened to two short stories, The Good Samaritan and The Goose the Laid the Golden Egg. We created story maps for each of them, and began writing one-sentence summaries for each.

Homework

After listening to two stories and creating story maps for each, students should write two one-sentence summaries on a clean sheet of B5 notebook paper.  Students are not required to include the paragraph summaries if they use  them, but may if they want to.

    Mr.Brammer, this is Sam.

    can you check my 2 one sentence summary?

    “The Good Samaritan”

    Original:

    there was a man that was beaten by the robbers and when the priest and the levite, who suppose to help them, didn’t help him but when samaritan passed by, he exactly helped him.

    Changes:

    t[T]here was [once] a man that was beaten by the [some] robbers [who, laying there almost dead, was passed by a] and when the priest and the [a] l[L]evite, who [were] suppose[d] to help them [him but] didn’t, [and was finally] help[ed] him but when [a] samaritan [Samaritan] passed by[.] , he exactly helped him.

    “The Goose that Laid the Golden Egg”

    there were a man and his wife, who had a goose that lys a golden egg a day, killed the goose to be rich faster but they realized that there wasn’t any gold inside the goose.

    I changed the first one, so you can see what I did and make your own changes to the second one.
