What do you think will Andy and his classmates feel meeting a monster at school?
During Reading
(Note: Before the reading time begins, the teacher assigns some pupils for the role play of some
story parts.)

The Monster Who Came to School


When Andy got on the bus on the first day of school, he saw a monster! Andy was very
surprised. He did not know that monsters were allowed to go to school. But there the monster
was. It was making all kinds of noise and would not sit down. It climbed on the seats and put
its head out the window. It took up so much room that Andy had no place to sit.
Wow, that monster sure is noisy! Ill bet it isnt even supposed to be here, Andy whispered
to Vicky.
STOP AND ASK: What do you think thewill the teacher will feel when she sees seeing a
monster at in school?
But Andys teacher was not at all surprised to see the monster entered the classroom. It
pushed ahead of everyone, grabbed a box of toys, and dumped them on the floor. When Andy
and the other children sat at their places, the monster started to throw the toys.
Stop that! said the teacher. Even monsters are not allowed to throw toys.
The monster dropped the toys and started screaming. It screamed so loudly that no one could
hear the teacher. Be quiet! the teacher finally said.
The monster stopped screaming and the teacher said, Its time to play outside.
STOP AND ASK: What do you think would the monster do?
Everyone stood up and walked to the dooreveryone except the monster. It ran out the door
without waiting for directions.
Outside, the monster continued to behave like a monster. It pushed some children and took
toys from others. It climbed up the slide the wrong way and sat at the top so no one else could
slide down.
When the students returned to the classroom, the teacher tried to read them a story. But the
monster shouted and laughed and no one could hear. Then it pulled the toys off the shelves
again. It would just not listen!

GRADE 3 ENGLISH

TEACHERS GUIDE

At lunchtime, the monster grabbed other peoples sandwiches. It dropped food in on the floor
on purpose and poured its milk on the table. Later, when it was time to paint, the monster ran
around the room painting big, black lines on the other childrens pictures! When the children
formed a circle and tried to sing, the monster jumped around and stepped on their toes. It
pounded on the piano until the teacher had to close it.

At rest time, the monster laughed and talked and poked the children and even pulled their hair.
Come here! said the teacher, who was very angry. You are a real monster! Monsters are not
allowed at school. Go away and never come back!
STOP AND ASK: What do you think will happen to the monster do?
The monster burst into tears! Everyone was astonished. Im sorry! cried the monster. Ive
never been to school before. I didnt know it was against the rules to shout and run and push, or
to grab and throw things. Please dont tell me I cant come back! I will try to learn if you all
will help me.
The teacher asked the children what they thought. The children decided to make a list of rules.
They would let the monster stay---if it followed the rules. The monster worked hard to learn
how to behave, and soon it knew all the rules, just the way all the children did.

Modeling/Teaching
Let us take a look at the sentences that we formed from the diagram.
a. The Country Mouse decided to visit the city because he was too curious about what
the city looks like.
b. The City Mouse and the Country Mouse ran to the corner of the house so they can
hide from the cat.
c. So that Country Mouse can have peace of mind, he decided to go back to the farm.
Discuss how the clue words (because, so, so that) can help the pupils find out which part of
the sentence tells the cause or the effect.
By simply examining the cause-and-effect chart diagram above, is it possible for a cause to
have several effects?
Remember:

A cause is why something happens. To find a cause, look for a reason that why something
happened.

An effect is what happens because of the cause. To find an effect, look for something that
happened.the results of the cause.

Usually, a cause always happens first. T, then it will beis followed by an the effect.

Clue words such as because, so, and so that are often used to help you understand cause
and effect in a sentence.

Say: This These sentences is called complex sentences. We combine two simple sentences using
conjunctions to form a complex sentence.
A complex sentence is made up of two parts, an independent calause and a dependent clause
joined by linking words or conjunction.
Words like because, when, after, though, as soon as and so that are examples of conjunctions
that can be used in a complex sentence. These conjunctions make one part of the sentence
subordinate to the other part.

according to size.)

Ask: What do you know about monkeys? How are they


characterized in most stories that you read?
Say: I will read to you a short story about monkeys. Listen well.
Three clever cats lived in a house. The white cat was big. The black cat is bigger
than the white cat. The striped cat was the biggest of the three.
One day they baked a cake for dinner. I will eat all the cake, said the white cat in a
loud voice.
I will eat it alone, said the black cat in a louder voice.
I will eat it all by myself said the striped cat in the loudest voice.
A clever monkey lived in a tree nearby. He was more more clever than the cats. In
fact, he was the most clever monkey in the world. He heard what the cats said and came into
their house. The cats were busy fighting among themselves. They did not see the monkey. The
monkey ate up the whole cake.
At last they stopped fighting. Wheres the cake? they said. It ran away because
you made too much noise, said the monkey.

Monkey and the cats

COMPARATIVE

Monkey and all the


monkeys in the world

SUPERLATIVE

After the children gave give their answers, write on the orange box POSITIVE, on the green
box COMPARATIVE and on the red box SUPERLATIVE . Then, ask the children what were
added to form the comparative and superlative forms and , how many were being compared.
Say: Comparing with using adjectives has three degrees. They These are the positive,
comparative, and superlative degrees. We use adjectives in the positive degree if we are
describing only one thing or person. We say Ann is tall. We use adjectives in the comparative
degree if we are describing two objects or persons. We say The monkey was more clever than
the cats. We say Sam is taller than Ann. We use adjectives in the superlative degree if we are
describing three or more things and person. We say In fact, he was the most clever monkey in
the world.
For comparative degree of adjective, we add er at the end of some adjectives. We can also add
more before some adjectives. In sentences using this degree of comparison, we use the word
than.
For superlative degree of adjective, we add est at the end of some adjectives. We can also add
most before some adjectives. In sentences using this degree of comparison, we use the word
of all.Tom is the tallest among them.

questions about it.
A Day at the Park
I went to the park. I went on Saturday. I went with my friends. My friends are
Marie, Connie, and Roy. We rode our bikes. I rode my new bike. Roy brought his
basketball. We played basketball. We played for two hours. We wereIt was hot. We
were thirsty. Connie and Roys mom brought us lemonade and sandwiches. We ate
them for lunch. We had a lot of fun.

GRADE 3 ENGLISH

TEACHERS GUIDE

Ask:
What can you say about the story?
How did it sound?
What did you notice about it?

Explain to the students that, many times, weak stories are full of very short, choppy sentences.
One way writers can make these stories stronger is to learn how to combine short sentences into
longer sentences.
2.

Modeling/Teaching
Let us compare some group of words from the story.
I went to the park. It is Saturday
I went to the park because it is Saturday.
We combined the two simple sentences. Now, we have I went to the park as the independent
clause. It expresses a complete thought. Because it is Saturday is a dependent clause. It does
not express complete thought. The marker because suggest that because it is Saturday is a
dependent clause.
To combine the two simple sentences we used the marker because.

Say: A clause can be dependent because of the presence of a:

Marker Word (Before, after, because, since, in order to, although, though, whenever,
wherever, whether, while, even though, even if)
Conjunction (And, or, nor, but, yet)

Let us have the next group of words.


We played basketball. We played for two hours. It is hot.
The new sentence is: We played basketball for two hours even if its hot.
How did we do it? We combined the three sentences. Now, we have an independent clause
We played basketball for two hours and dependent clause even if its hot. The marker
even if tell us that even if its hot is a dependent clause.
Let us have the next independent and dependent clauses.
Connie and Roys mom brought us lemonade and sandwiches. We ate them for lunch.
Ask the children to combine sentences below using the chart provided .

The butterfly shouted. He saw the caterpillar crawling up the


garden wall.
The caterpillar did not listen to the butterflys cry. He knew he can be a butterfly one day.

Teacher reads aloud the story Two Friends, One World (Franciscas Story)
Two Friends, One World
Franciscas Story
by Ramon C. Sunico and Joanne de leon
I have a friend who lives in another world. His name is Antonio. The world he lives
in is full of sounds and smells and tastes and feeling.
My world is also full of sounds and smells and tastes and feeling, but sometimes, I
am too busy seeing to notice these other things.
Every Saturday afternoon, as the sun is about to go down, his mama brings him to
the park where I am already waiting. I can see him from far away because, Papa
says, I have such big eyes.
I run to him and take his hand and his Mama lets us walk around. Antonio teaches
me to be quiet- so quiet I can hear the wind talk to the leaves, so quiet I can feel the
air turn cooler as the sun leaves the sky.
Antonio cannot see. He cannot see but he can smell the white flowers of the rosal
bush growing beside the broken wall of an old church behind the park before I can
even come close enough to see the church. He knows when papa has brought
mangoes for us to eat, even when these are still in the basket.
One day, he showed me my first grasshopper. I was trying to tell him what a
mountain looked like when he said suddenly, Shh Francisca, listen! There is
something moving in the grass.
Where, where? I cant see anything! I complained.
Ay naku. Francisca, quiet or youll scare it away. Look with your ears first and
then with your eyes. Try to listen to yourself breathe and all the other sounds will
follow.

And sure enough, I heard something small moving the dried grass aside. I followed
the sound, first with my ears and then with my eyes. Slowly, very slowly. And when
I could only hear Antonio and me breathing, I saw the grasshopper-all green and
pointed, with red stripe down its back.
And I thanked Antonio for showing me how to find the place where the
grasshoppers hide.
And he smiled the same smile he smiles after tasting a cool, ripe mango.
One day, I will tell him that, maybe, we do not live in two worlds.
After all, we meet every Saturday afternoon. What I can see, he can hear or taste or
smell or touch. What he cannot see, I can bring to him with words.
One day, we will meet one Saturday afternoon and I will tell him that, maybe there
is only one world. But it is so big and beautiful and there are so many things going
on inside it, that it takes two friends to enjoy its sweetness like a great, cool, sweet,
smooth, golden-yellow mango.

But wait, Mom! They still fit me. Look, Mateo said after fitting on his old red shirt.
Grandma gave this to me. Its my favorite, Mateo added.
Mateo tried putting on his old jacket, pairs of pants and slippers. They are still fit meokay.
Mateo remembered who gave them and when he received those items.
Oh why did I grow so much? I love these clothes. Mateo told his mother.
Ok, you can take them back, Mother told Mateo.
So Mateo got the box with his old shirt, jacket, pants and slippers in it.
The next day Mother asked Mateo where the box was. She hoped that Mateo would change
his mind.
Mama, the box was gone. I wasnt able to take it to the evacuation center, Mateo said.

SUPER RR
By: Jelly Sore
That Sunday night, Mateo had a dream. He dreamed about Rocky, the boy to whom he
gave a box of clothes. When Rocky wore Mateos old red shirt, Rocky transformed into a
superhero. Super RR, short for Super Red Rocky was on his shirt. He had a pair of red pants, a
golden cap and a golden cape. He flew a on top of a golden mountain and looked at the village
with his pair of red eyeglass. There was a flood. He saw people on top of their houses. They
were asking for help. Super RR took off his pair of golden shoes and changed them to in to two
shiny red boats. In a few minutes, he reached the village and saved hundreds of people. Mateo
