September 2021 Grades K-1 Lesson of the Month
Teachers, your students are walking into your classroom with a wide range of abilities. The lesson can be completed in several different ways depending on the developmental levels of your students. The most effective way for non-readers is to use the slides for whole class instruction. Each student should have a clear informational text with as many of the text features indicated as possible. Move through the slides to define each feature, ask students to locate the feature in their book and complete the slides together. For students who read, the slides can be used whole class and then assigned for independent practice. The objective of the lesson is for students to identify the text features in an informational text. This lesson includes a challenge slide for students who are ready to do this work independently.
