This lesson plan gives detailed instructions for teaching diverse learners such as ELLs and below grade level students. I include graphic organizers, simplified language and visuals to support English Language Learner's many diverse needs.
This lesson focuses on building background knowledge and confidence. It then progresses into a scaffold supported practice and application segment where students work together, build off of each other's strengths and build on their prior knowledge.
For second grade, i recommend simplifying this lesson a little. You can also add a "wiggle minute" here or there to help boost concentration and fun.
