CHECK OUT MY CORRESPONDING POWERPOINT SLIDES IN MY STORE CALLED ReadyGEN Unit 1 Module A READ THE TEXT PowerPoint Slides Grade 3.
These are my lesson plans for ONLY the “Read the Text” components of Module A in Unit 1 of ReadyGen for Grade 3. Each day I begin with these lessons for the read aloud portion of it, before I lead into my reading portion, and then my writing portion.
I did not include ALL of the information from the teacher’s guide. I summarized the pages from the teacher’s guide to only include what I felt was the most important information to teach my students.
Each lesson includes:
- 1-3 benchmark vocabulary words
- 2 questions from the “Explore the Text” section. I use these questions to monitor that my students have gotten the “gist” of the story.
- 1-2 questions from he “Close Reading” section. I changed the wording of these questions to be higher order thinking questions and I do them as a “turn and talk” or “discussion” routine.
- 1 question from the “Team Talk” section that I use as the closure to my lesson.
All lessons are written in a mini-lesson format and the plans follow components of the Danielson Framework.
All lesson plans include the following components: unit, lesson topic, objective (written in the “Today I will __ so that I can __. I’ll know I’ve got it when __.” format), Common Core Learning Standards, materials, vocabulary, motivation/connection, learning plan, higher order thinking questions, assessment, differentiation (However, my differentiation for this type of lesson is group size and visuals for vocabulary), closure, and reinforce and extend learning.
