A very fun and engaging lesson plan to use along with The Night It Rained story in 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 of 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.
Great engagement for struggling readers! I have used this in my reading intervention class spanning classes from 3rd-7th with students reading at a 1st and 2nd grade level.
