This smart board lesson can be used to teach an engaging and interactive lesson on story leads. It provides various examples, and non-examples. Children can be invited to the smart board to go "fishing" in order to learn how to "hook" their reader when writing a story lead. This lesson involves various types of instructional strategies, including a think-pair-share and an authentic assessment. I created this lesson using lots of fun images and animated graphics to spark interest in children of all ages. Enjoy!
