Asking And Answering Questions: Frog Habitat


Lesson 5 follows the same general instructional sequence as Lessons 3 and 4.

This lesson gives students an authentic opportunity to practice the skill of skimming for information efficiently. Students are guided through the process of skimming. They are purposely given a chance to “have a go” at this new skill with less direct teacher modeling. Attend carefully to how students are using this skill during the lesson. Note students who weren’t able to find the identified frogs, and confer with them first as you circulate around the room.

Bilingual Language Progressions

These resources, developed by the New York State Education Department, provide standard-level scaffolding suggestions for English Language Learners (ELLs) to help them meet grade-level demands. Each resource contains scaffolds at multiple levels of language acquisition and describes the linguistic demands of the standards to help ELA teachers as well as ESL/bilingual teachers scaffold content for their English learning students.
