This is a quickwrite that goes along with the Open Court McGraw Hill Series, Unit 1 Week 3 story "One Small Step". I have created a quickwrite that will engage students to relate the "Big Idea" from the unit with the selection prior to reading. This will help the students make a personal connection that they will be able to use to relate to the characters as they read the weekly selection.
Quickwrites are great ways to prepare students' minds for what they are about to read. It gives them a schema to add to as they read the selection. This in turn allows the students' comprehension to increase because they have a connection in which they can relate the new information being read.
This quickwrite is a part of my weekly lesson plan bundle for this story. This bundle includes everything you'll need to effectively teach this story! It includes lesson plans, comprehension questions, a note-taking organizer, a vocabulary organizer and review sheet, a spelling list as well as a spelling activity sheet. All of your weekly lesson plans and resources are done for the week! Please check it out!
