Evan-Moor Corp. EMC 3453 Daily Reading Comprehension 3

3453.indb 3 5/6/10 3:59 PM


WEEK Make Connections
This strategy helps students put what they are reading into context by allowing
1 them to recognize the connections between the text and themselves, the world
around them, and other things they have read or seen.

Explain to students: This week we will learn to make connections. When good readers read, they
connect what they are reading to things they have read, seen, or done. This helps them to better
understand the passage. It is important, though, to stay focused on what we are reading and not
DAY let the connections we make distract us. Read the passage title aloud and ask students to share
1 connections they make to dogs (e.g., they own a dog; they have read about dogs.). Have students read
the passage independently and then complete the strategy practice activity. Allow volunteers to share
their responses. Then direct students to complete the skill practice activity. Review the answers
together.

Remind students of the strategy, and then explain that they will read a passage about a boy named
Evan who is from the city and rides a horse for the first time. Ask students to predict how Evan
might feel (scared, nervous, excited, etc.). Point out that students make these predictions based on
DAY how they might feel or what they know about doing something such as riding a horse for the first
2 time. Say: You made a connection in order to better understand how Evan might feel. Have
students read the passage and then complete the strategy practice activity. Invite volunteers to share
their answers. Then direct students to complete the skill practice activity. Review the answers
together.

Remind students of the strategy, and have them read the passage. When students have finished,
explain that it is possible to make different kinds of connections to a passage. Model: I dont know
DAY much about chimpanzees, Jane Goodall, or Africa, so it was hard for me to make a connection
3 to the first paragraph. I was able to make a connection to the second paragraph, because I know
how people share their feelings. This connection allowed me to better understand how
chimpanzees behave. Direct students to complete the activities. Review the answers together.

Remind students of the strategy, and read the instructions at the top of the page aloud. Ask students
DAY to share experiences they may have had with someone who was always grouchy or grumpy. Have
4 students read the passage. When students have finished, direct them to complete the activities.
Review the answers together.

Remind students of the strategy, and read the instructions at the top of the page aloud. Explain to
DAY students that they will read about a type of bird called a waxwing. After students have finished
5 reading the passage, pair students for the strategy practice activity. Then direct students to complete
the skill practice activity. Review the answers together.

Sparky the Wonder Dog


Bellas dog Sparky likes to run and explore. Bella thinks that Sparky is like
a magician. One moment Sparky is in the backyard and then, all of a sudden,
hes gone!
Sparky escaped again last week, so Bella set out to find him. She called out
Sparkys name as she walked. Bella even shook Sparkys bag of dog chow.
Treats! Treats! yelled Bella. Sparky loved his treats, but he did not appear.
Then Bella stopped. She smelled some meat grilling. She spotted a cloud of
smoke from behind a house. Bella headed there and peeked in the yard. Sure
enough, there was Sparky. He stood on his hind legs in front of a grill. Sparky
was whistling and flipping burgers. Bella could see Sparkys mouth drool. Bella
wondered where Sparky got the apron he was wearing.

READ THE PASSAGE Thinkaboutatimewhenyoulearnedsomethingnew.

Whoa, Boy!
Evan lived in the city. More than anything, he wanted to ride a horse. He could
hardly wait to gallop as fast as the wind. Evan visited Uncle Pete at his farm. His
uncle was ready to show Evan how to ride.
Evan sat on a fence as his uncle walked a horse toward him. The ground
seemed to shake with every step the horse took. Evan dug his fingernails into the
fence. He stared at the huge beast. Were all horses this big? he wondered.
Uncle Pete helped Evan onto the horses back. Then Evan tapped the horses
sides with his heels. The horse began to trot. Evan bounced up and down like
a jumping frog.
Riding a horse hurts, said Evan. He decided to forget about galloping. For
now, the speed of a merry-go-round seemed just right.

Learning About Chimpanzees


We know a lot about chimpanzees because of Jane Goodall. She studied the
apes for over 30 years. She crawled through thick forests in Africa to sit still and
watch them. During that time, Jane wrote down what she saw and heard.
We now know that chimpanzees live in friendly groups. They greet each other
with a hug and a kiss. Mother chimps tickle their babies and make them laugh.
Chimpanzees play games together, and they clean each other. They show their
feelings, too. Worried chimpanzees pucker their lips. Scared chimpanzees bare
their teeth. Calm and happy chimpanzees smile. And each sound a chimpanzee
makes means something. For example, chimpanzees bark when they find food.
Chimpanzees also solve problems. They use sticks as tools to get food they
cannot reach. They chew leaves and use them as sponges to sop up water.
