In this lesson, students will use a shared reading of "The Way I Feel" by Janan Cain to practice making text to self connections. Opportunities for making connections through discussion, writing and drawing are provided. The lesson is structured to include a hook, mini-lesson, guided practice and finally independent practice. All you need is a copy of Janan Cain's wonderfully illustrated book and you are set. Every Archer Education reading lesson contains a one-page lesson plan, a guided practice worksheet and another handout for independent practice (or guided reading focus activity). Everything is ready to go!
