Lesson plan example: (Day 2) Write a list of details: Ask students to refer back to the accordion booklet created on Day 1. Review step one. Tell students that today they will create a list of ideas to go along with the topic given or chosen. Using page 5, model how to make a list of details. Model how to create details that involve the senses. Model how to delete items that you will not include in your paragraph. Next, divide students into pairs. Cut apart the topic ideas and distribute one topic for each pair of students. (created by monthly holidays, celebrations or famous people) Instruct each pair to create a list of 8-15 details on page 19.. Follow-up by instructing students to share their list with another group.
