Feedback for Lower Elementary Mini Lesson

I loved your groups mini lesson plan. It was a lot like our own, but I guess they mostly are since we were both teaching first grade.

The whole lesson was great but I think the anchor you guys had was wonderful. You taught the kids "what" it takes to be an author. It isn't just about writing a book from start to finish in one go. It is a process and is something that the students can do also because the authors have to take several of their ideas and put them together to make a story.

The only thing I can think that may need improvement is maybe having some set examples to choose from to write about in case some of students draw a blank. I know when I was put on the spot for something like this I would totally draw a blank and would get frustrated.

You guys did a great job. Thanks for sharing.

      I really liked your anchor idea. I found it was a good idea to put the students in an authors shoes. I feel like if the students believe they are the authors they will take the assignment more... more

        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.
