The Beauties of Fall
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

In this unit, students begin a year-long exploration of the seasons and how weather, plants, and animals are different depending on the season by studying the beauties of fall and fall harvests. Students launch the unit by setting up an ongoing weather experiment in order to understand the patterns of fall and how weather changes during fall. While gathering on-going data about the changing weather in fall, students will learn and observe what happens to leaves in the fall and notice the difference between various types of leaves. In the second half of the unit, students explore the different harvests of fall, particularly apples and pumpkins, and discuss the basic life cycles of both. This unit is a chance for students to stop and think about the changes that are happening in the natural world around them and why the changes happen. It is our hope that by the end of the year, after studying winter and spring in subsequent units, students will have a deeper understanding of the unique features of each season.

In reading, this is students' first introduction to informational texts and reading to learn information. Students will continue to develop their inquisitive side by being challenged to ask and answer questions about the content and text they are interacting with. This unit exposes students to a subject matter that is present in their day-to-day lives; therefore, they should be challenged to ask questions and make connections between what they are reading and learning and what they are seeing outside. Additionally, while listening to stories, students will learn how to use the text and illustrations to determine the key details of a text and then use those details to retell what the text was mostly about. Students will also continue to understand the author's and illustrator's roles in writing texts and should be able to identify and explain both by the end of the unit. In this unit, students will also begin to explore the content in-depth by participating in labs and projects. These teacher-created projects will allow students to interact with and synthesize the material they are learning at an even deeper level.

In writing, students will continue to write daily in response to the text. As with units 1 and 2, students are focusing on using correct details from the text to answer the question. Students should be using a combination of words and pictures, depending on the student's development as a writer. Daily teaching points, based on student data, should be included to ensure that students are progressing as writers.

Rating

This activity is intended as an introduction to close-reading using visual media. In this lesson, students will review and then closely "read" the painting, "The Kiss" by Gustav Klimt in order to understand the process of close-reading and its impact on our understanding of texts. Once students have learned how to conduct close-reading of a visual text, they reflect on how they might transfer this skill to the written word.
This activity also includes optional extension activities that incorporate poetry into the lesson.

Fractions and Decimals – Goldfish Activity
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating

Fractions and Decimals- Goldfish activity is a combination of literacy and mathematics. This activity encourages literacy across the curriculum, as a fraction concept is reviewed through Dr. Seuss's book One fish, two fish leading to cooperative learning hands-on activity where students experience how we use fractions in real life to sort from a cluster. Helping students understand the relationship between mathematics and literacy at an early age is crucial for their development as a whole child and building a strong foundation of number sense.

In this lesson, students work in groups of 3-4 students to analyze their paired novella in order to deepen their understanding of the text. Each student takes on a specific role - leader, skeptic, or scribe in order to form an assertion, support that assertion with evidence, and refine their assertion in order to craft a clear, specific argument. In addition to providing a collaborative, multi-modal analysis experience, this lesson also incorporates movement and reflection and is easily adaptable to any paired text or close-reading skill.

"New Choice" - An Introduction to Storytelling and Literary Elements
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating

This lesson remixes an original lesson plan created by Austin Meyer entitled: "Teach Design: New Choice." This will work well as an introduction to a storytelling unit or a creative writing class. It is also a fun and interactive anticipatory activity when introducing the idea of close-reading for authorial choice. Students will work in small groups to create an original story based on a whole-class prompt. Each group, however, will have a different literary element to change as the story continues (for example, character or conflict). When "new choice" is called, a new storyteller from the group takes over and adjusts the story as needed in order to meet the challenge of the new choice.
