A very fun and engaging lesson plan to use along with the story In a Dark, Dark, Room from the book series In a Dark, Dark, Room by Alvin Schwartz.
A complete lesson plan that includes learning targets and all the best brain research steps that support instructional reading: Developing Schema and Previewing, Reinforcing Comprehension strategies, Setting a Purpose for Reading, Response Log Writing and Grand Conversation Questions for post reading to reinforce of higher level thinking skills and vocabulary. All these steps are highlighted by walking brain indicators in the lesson! Just follow along!!
The Lesson also includes 1 poem for students to practice fluency and vocabulary word practice to teach before reading.
A great way to increase student engagement- especially for struggling readers!
I have used this in grades 4th through 7th in my reading intervention classes with students reading at a 1st-2nd grade level.
