This lesson can also be used as a sub plan! Students will imagine where you are WHEN you're NOT at school.
Have you ever run into a student outside the school day - in a place they're NOT expecting to see you? In Michigan we call it a "deer in the headlights" moment.
This comprehensive writing lesson accompanies the book My Teacher's Secret Life. The book answers the question "Where do teachers go when the school day ends?"
This lesson asks students to imagine the secret life of their teacher. The lesson includes:
A dedication page
Fictional descriptive writing
Brainstorming teacher likes/dislikes
Ideas and supporting details
Writing tools and tips
Two writing templates - one allowing for a shorter piece with an illustration and one allowing for a more lengthy story with a cover sheet
A FUN bulletin board sign!
Bulletin board lettering "My Teacher's Secret Life!"
You and your students will giggle as stories of your secret life are shared.
Another student favorite is Writing Mini-Choice Cards.
A GREAT way to quickly improve student writing is "Writing Anchor Charts AND Student Writing Resources!" Take a look!
