Sloppy Joe By Dave Keane
Summary: A sloppy boy decides it’s time to change his ways and become neat. With an unexpected turn he has to take care of his sick family and turns to his old ways.
Focus: Text structure (Character comments)
Connection: Explain that today students will be looking at text structure and specifically adding comments to characters.
Teach: Read Sloppy Joe (If possible show on an active board so that all students can clearly see the pages’ details).
Ask students if they saw anything interesting about the way the author chose to write some of the lines.
Show students pages 4 and 16. And again ask what is different. (Students should notice different colors of font and writing in a curved line).
Discuss how using different fonts, or writing in different styles can help an author get a point across or even emphasize something important.
Active Engagement: Students will compose a narrative story using special text features. Students should be encouraged to use different colors or may stray off of the lines in order to aid in allowing the reader to understand their writing.
Link: Summarize the day by again sharing different ways an author can change text structure.
Invite students to sit in the author’s chair to share and even project their writing onto the active board if they would like.

Read information about the authorAfter spending so much time reading books to my three kids, I decided I'd try my hand at children's books. It's been a blast. I've visited schools all over the country. I've talked to thousands of kids about writing, illustrating, and using your imagination. And I've received tons of incredible letters and emails from parents, kids and teachers from just about everywhere.
I am the author of the Joe Sherlock: Kid Detective series and the Monster School: I Can Read series. My picture books include Sloppy Joe, Bobby Bramble Loses His Brain and Daddy Adventure Day. Next year, Knopf/Random House is releasing my new picture book, Who Wants a Tortoise?, illustrated by K. G. Campbell. Stay up on it all at my Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/mrdavekeane
