Response to Student Teachers Lesson Plan

Your lesson plan sounded like a lot of fun! I like how you began by connecting the poem (which they hadn't read yet) with something that they already were familiar with, which was their own experiences with snow. I also like how you included that students that live in a certain climate may not have much experience with snow, so showing them photos and videos would be a great way to provide visual support. Your CAR statements/questions were very strong and will help students to think about and interact with both the text in front of them as well as the connecting previous class conversation. I am interested by the partner reading aspect. I think that is an excellent strategy for the teacher to be able to help students in a more individualized way, but how are students paired? Are they paired on similar levels (high students with high and low with low) or opposite? If you are pairing on the same levels, then your high students may finish well before your students who are struggling with reading. It may be a good idea to have another enrichment activity for these students, or have them go along into the writing lesson (which was a great idea, by the way!). Overall, I loved the lesson and it sounds like a lot of fun. Just a side note, one thing we did in elementary school when discussing snow was to cover our desks with shaving cream and write our spelling words in the cream on the desk top. We loved it and it gave us a chance to interact with our material (they were snow based words) in something that looked a little like snow! It might just be something fun to think about and could be used with the tricky words in the poem. Thanks again, guys!
