Lesson Plan : Writing to Teach

Teacher Name:
 Katelyn Runyan-Gless
Grade:
 Kindergarten
Subject:
 Language Arts

Topic:
 Students will write about what they are "specialists" in to teach their audience what they know.
Content:
 English Language Arts
Goals:
 Students will write a three page paper on a topic of their choice. They will use writing and drawing to express their knowledge.
Objectives:
 Write or use illustrations to inform. Use knowledge of letter sound correlation (phonetic spelling) when writing. Use a variety of words in early forms of writing, dictation or illustrations to express complete thoughts. Share written work with classmates.
Materials:
 Writing paper, pencils, crayons
Introduction:
 We are going to write our very own non-fiction books so that we can teach other people things that we know!
Development:
 The authors who wrote about Cesar Chavez last week taught us so many things we didn't know before. They are Cesar Chavez specialists, and I bet they know a lot more things that they didn't get to tell us because it's too much to put in just one book. Those authors might need 4 books just to tell us everything they know. But, just like those authors we are specialists in things too, and that's what we are going to write about today. I want you to get your brains ready to think about what you will write about (here I will remind all the students what they said they were going to write about). First, we are going to write a book together so that you know what I'm looking for.
Practice:
 I was think that we know a lot about dinosaurs because we studied them in December,I was hoping that you would all help me write a book about dinosaurs.
Accommodations:
 Students will be allowed to choose the topic they write about (Hannah Montana is acceptable).
Checking For Understanding:
 How many pages are we writing? What are you writing about? Can you give me a 3 finger re-tell?
Evaluation:
 Each student will be graded based on the rubric.
