Diversity and Equity (Accommodations, Modifications, Adaptations)

Accommodations: Students will be given a handout of the book, where they can highlight important clues.
Students will be given the story in Spanish (for ELL students).
Modifications: Students will be asked to identify the plot rather than the main idea. They will be given a series
of choices to choose from.
1. Introduction (Approx. 5-8 minutes)
a. Call students by table to find a spot on the carpet
b. Begin to make imaginary “pizza dough”
i. Have children get out their imaginary bowl
ii. Add eggs, flour, sugar, etc.
iii. Place “dough” in the “oven” and tell students it should be ready by the time the book is
c. Once attention is on the teacher have students study the cover of One by Kathryn Otashi and
guess what the story could be about. Conduct informal assessments, through questioning, to
test student prior knowledge
2. Read Aloud (Approx. 10-15 minutes)
a. Begin to read the story and ask the following questions throughout the story:
i. Based on the front cover, what could One be about?
ii. Who is the story about?
iii. Why won’t the other colors stand up to Red?
iv. What is a hot head? Why is Red acting this way?
v. What made Blue finally stand up to Red?
vi. How was the problem finally resolved?
b. End the story with making personal connections. Ask the following questions
i. Have you ever felt, a little blue? What made you feel that way?
ii. What does it mean to stand up to someone? Have you ever done that?
3. “Main Idea Pizzeria” (Approx. 8-10 minutes)
a. Announce that the crust is ready to make the Monday Special! Main Idea Pizza
b. Draw attention to the white board and welcome the class to the “Main Idea Pizzeria”! Today
the Monday special is garlic Main Idea pizza with three “topping” details. Begin to explain what
the main idea is; what the story is mostly about. Draw a circle and compare the main idea of
the story is like the bottom of a pizza, you can’t have a pizza without the crust (like a story
cannot have a main idea). Begin to ask the following questions to get students to help find the
main idea of One.
i. Ask yourself, what did I just read about?
ii. Look at the title and pictures for clues
iii. Reread first or last sentence in the book
c. Once the main idea is confirmed by the class, begin to describe the toppings. Ask students what
they like to eat on their pizza (pepperoni, sausage, peppers, mushrooms, etc.) and add their
responses to the pizza. What happened in the story that supports our main idea? (Makes it
tastier). Have students come up with at least three details to put on the pizza.
4. Conclusion/Wrap Up ( Approx. 3-5 Minutes)
a. After creating the Main Idea Monday special, Ask students to summarize the main idea of the
story once more. Once the discussion is over, have students return to their seats and begin
5. Stations/Guided Reading (Approx. 20-30 minutes)
a. While students are at stations, begin to pull students for small group instruction to cover
subjects they need improvement on
b. Once it is time for recess, have students clean their stations and line up at the door for the next
