Lesson Plans

Name Description
It's All in the Details

In this multi-day lesson, students will learn about American holidays as they analyze grade-appropriate informational text. Students will learn to identify the front cover, back cover, and title page of a book and their text features. They will also learn how to use the text features (title, headings, and illustrations) to predict the topic of the book. As the teacher reads the book, students will confirm the topic and identify important details, recording them on a graphic organizer. Finally, students will use details from the graphic organizer to draw, dictate, and/or write an expository piece about the topic of the text. 

Purpose and Particulars: Presidents

In this lesson, students will become informative investigators through whole group and independent activities about presidents and Presidents' Day. Students will identify basic similarities and differences between multiple texts to contribute to a class-generated Venn Diagram as well as an independent Venn Diagram. Students will practice generating ideas and details for a class-created informative writing piece and by creating their own informative writing piece based on what they learned through the lessons' texts.
