We learn as we make connections and all too often our kiddos lack the background knowledge or experiences that help support their learning. This is one reason I created these lesson plans. They are lessons in which students get to interact with a book through art, poetry, drama, and play. There is no prior knowledge needed for these lessons, and they can be used through a variety of grades, from kindergarten to third grade.
The day is broken up into 5 lessons, one for each chapter of the book, Flat Stanley: His Original Adventure!. Each lesson includes two new vocabulary words, reading of the chapter, and an activity. Each lesson focuses on providing students with the opportunity to interact with the book in a meaningful, fun way! Each lesson begins with the teacher modeling the activity. It is here that the teacher sets the example and quality of work expected. The lesson then goes on with the class doing part of the activity together, and then having them complete it on their own. This gradual release of responsibility provides students with the support to do their best work.
Lessons are intended to be completed sequentially. Whenever you come back from breaks, just pick up where you left off!
