This is a truly fun, multi-day lesson plan that will guide 2nd and 3rd graders as they create their own versions of the traditional story of La ratita presumida.
The multi-paragraph cloze writing is appropriate for both struggling writers and advanced writers. Because this lesson sequence has multiple points of entry, students will be engaged and excited to share the stories they create. Each story will contain creative dialogue, interesting adjectives, varied transition words and a moral for a conclusion.
Before teaching the lesson, do familiarize yourself with the story so that you are able to understand the lesson sequence and scaffold the students with a whole group model of each paragraph.
