Tap prior knowledge by asking children to recall the animals and events in
"Twilight Hunt." Prompt brainstorming: Suppose the animals in "Twilight Hunt" could
talk and think like people. At the beginning of the story, I think the baby owls would say,
"We're hungry!" and the mother Screech Owl would reply, "It is twilight, so I will hunt for
food!" What do you think the babies would say next?

materials for props, such as: butcher paper,
craft sticks, color markers and pencils, paint
and paintbrushes, scissors and glue, table and
tablecloth

suggEstEd timing
Conduct this activity on Week 1, Day 5 during
your speaking and listening time.

Help children form a cast and choose who will act out each animal and who will be
the narrator. Guide children at different proficiency levels to select appropriate roles.
Have each cast group use Speaking and Listening Routine 2 to negotiate a story
extension.
To create puppets, have children first look at the pictures of the animals they will act
out. Next have them use the pictures to help draw the figures and cut them out from
construction paper and then glue the animal figures on craft sticks.
For Speaking and Listening Routine 2, see page BP20.

rehearse
Set up a table in front of the backdrop and add a tablecloth or sheet to hide the
puppeteers. Have the animal cast members and narrator think about and discuss what
they will say. Have students use Academic Talk flip chart page 33 to retell the story in
sequence.
See Multi-Level Strategies

perform. Evaluate performances using the Theme Theater Rubric. For each
performance, assess one group's listening skills.
For Speaking and Listening Routine 3, see page BP21.
