6 Best Writing Lessons Ever

March 2021 Grades 2-4 Lesson of the Month



Do your students ever talk about what they want to be when they grow up? Do they want to milk giraffes? Or be the master of a snail farm? In this delightful tale, When I Grow Up, written by Al Yankovic (yes - Weird Al Yankovic), students will explore a variety of realistic and possibly far-fetched careers. Then, they’ll apply the detail generating questions, What does it look like? and Why is it important? to fully expand their ideas.
