Tree of Cranes

Conduct a literature study in order to review the sequence of a story with an ELD class. Here, middle schoolers read the story and practice the skill of summary in order to increase reading comprehension and writing skills. Allen Say's story Tree of Cranes, along with How My Parents Learned to Eat which is used here for followup, is beautiful and rewarding for readers of all ages. Geared toward Japanese ELLs, in particular, but the idea is useful and adaptable for all non-native speakers.

I am currently a student teacher. I drive an hour and a half to the school I teach at each day. Thus, I do not have extra time on my hands! Lesson Planet has saved me a lot of time by helping me find worksheets which are very fitting to my lesson!
