Lesson Plans

Sequential Story Tellers:

In this lesson, students will become story sequencers as they participate in whole group, partner, and independent activities. Students will recall important events from the story The Little Red Hen and help generate a class story to demonstrate their understanding of beginning, middle, and end before completing their summative assessment. At the end of the lesson students will become authors of their own narrative when they write a sequential story of a special event. They will use suggestions and revisions from their peers and teacher to create a final draft of their narrative that will be shared with the class.

Students will build momentum to brainstorm ideas and work collaboratively in small and large groups to create a class chart. The class chart will document the ideas of what caterpillars might eat. The chart can be used in student end product writing. The lesson will focus on using class-made resources to complete a sentence using punctuation, capitalization, finger spacing and inventive spelling.
