Sample Lesson Using Clouds I-GO
• Provide students with page 1 of the illustrated graphic organizers. The rich visual reference activates prior knowledge about the topic and provides a reference point for discussions with students about the main topic, subtopics, and key details. Encourage associating the new information with previously learned concepts (e.g. weather observations).
• Read aloud, to the students, informational text about the topic. Their increased interest and curiosity about the lesson creates a condition for motivated, purposeful, and meaningful reading. While reading the text, pause to discuss the pictures as they relate to the text, and the text as it relates to their expectations. Identify the key details and discuss unfamiliar words. After the reading, the students can work independently or in small groups to illustrate page 2 of the graphic organizers, using page 1 as a model.

Learning Assessment

pages 3 and 4.
• Learners will
o Cut out the pictures and vocabulary words/labels
o Identify main topic and subtopics and glue pictures and labels
o Use drawing/coloring to indicate opinion (favorite clouds)
