Minilesson style teaching is an art, it takes time to perfect it, it takes a lot of practice creating one and a lot of practice delivering them. Fortunately, our students love our teaching no matter what, but the more prepared, intentional, planned and purposeful we are, the most our students will understand, apply, transfer and use the strategy for strategic, proficient and independent reading comprehension and writing craft.
Use these templates to write your own minilesson "scripts" add a mentor text that lends well to showing students HOW to use the strategy and stick to your script for a tight, succinct 10 minute minilesson covering the five components on the template.

Page 2 is called Minilessons 101: a crash course in delivering daily minilesson style reading and writing instruction to your whole class in front of you, at your feet, on the rug.
This product also gives two sample minilessons, but this product is not the actual minilessons, however, this product does give directions on how to turn one strategy from The Reading and Writing Strategies Book into one minilesson.
