This is a two day lesson plan that can be done during the first week of school, or whenever you are planning to introduce routines for stopping and jotting thoughts during reading. The lesson contains all components formatted in the TC design, and revolves around a read aloud of the book Brand New Pencils Brand New Books by Diane DeGroat. The lesson plan includes pictures of anchor charts that can be used in the classroom, as well as possible student outcomes. It is detailed so you can follow it word for word, or you can modify it by adding to it or revising the content. If you need to have a complete lesson plan for everything you do then this will save you time. I do this lesson every year and the kids love the main character, wanting to hear other books in this series.
