A very fun and engaging lesson plan to use along with the story The Green Ribbon from the book series In a Dark, Dark, Room by Alvin Schwartz.
A complete lesson plan that includes learning targets and all the best brain research steps that support instructional reading: Developing Schema and Previewing, Reinforcing Comprehension strategies, Setting a Purpose for Reading, Response Log Writing and Grand Conversation Questions for post reading to reinforce higher level thinking skills and vocabulary.
All these steps are highlighted by walking brain indicators in the lesson! Just follow along!!
The Lesson also includes 2 poems for students to practice fluency and 10 vocabulary words to pre-teach.
It has been an absolute winner for my students! High engagement, especially for struggling readers.
I have used this lesson in my reading intervention class with grades spanning from 3rd to 7th for students reading at a 1st or 2nd grade level.
