Give a Glow:
I love the detail of the classroom and how you described each process of the mini-lesson. I think the instructions are very clear and that a substitute teacher would easily follow your plan. Your example would be a great idea for 'Father's Day' and would help the students with describing words about their dad.

Give a Grow:
The only thing I think you would need to do is give the students 2-3 topics to choose from instead of leaving it open. Young students and especially ASD students may have a difficult time deciding for themselves what to use for the topic. I do, however, think most students would follow your lead and write about their dad or mom.

Overall: Great job!

        Angie, we originally had in mind father's day but tried to stay away from giving the children a prompt considering this week's information.
