I have a second demo lesson early Wednesday morning! (They said I'm a "strong candidate" so fingers crossed! I was told that I will be in first grade classroom and they are currently studying space. The principal asked me to implement a ELA lesson (a lesson that is space-themed but has an ELA objective). They use the to-with-by model. In my first demo lesson (same assignment but 2nd grade), I used Dr. Seuss's "There's No Place Like Space" and a supplementary non-fiction text about planets to teach students to visualize and adapt their visualization with new information. Students drew their mental images, added their adaptations, and then summarized their pictures. I introduced the book with a book box containing relevant items to activate prior knowledge and make predictions/inferences. I have the book "If You Decide To Go To The Moon", as well as other first grade easy-reader space-related picture books (e.g. about astronauts). My ideas are: 1. Comprehension strategy: Summarizing Do a lesson on identifying the main idea/important details by using the "ten most important words" method of summarizing. I would introduce the book using a "character's pocket" (similar to book box). I would review what makes a word "most important" and model and think-aloud the selection of the "most important words" when reading "If You Decide to Go to the Moon". I would then model using all of the most important words to write a summary. Then I would distribute post-its to the students and tell them they would try to identify the most important words in the book "astronauts". I would guide them at first and then release responsibility for the final important words. I would pause at each page (it is an 8 page book), and allow students time to write down the word they thought was the most important. We would then construct a bar graph from our post-its and discuss why many of us selected the same most important words. Students would then write a summary sentence attempting to use all eight most important words and draw a picture to go with their summary if they finished early. 2. Comprehension Strategy: Visualization (I'm afraid of doing another lesson on the same strategy as I taught in my first demo, although it was to a different class/grade) I would use the book "If You Decide to Go to the Moon" and still use character's pocket to introduce. I would distribute a worksheet with a graphic organizer that in the middle says "Visualization: Good readers use all 5 senses to make a picture in their heads" and has five bubbles, one for each sense with a picture and question (e.g. picture of eyes and "What do you see?". As we read the book I would model, then do with students, then allow students to complete, the graphic organizer. Students would then use a worksheet to write a sentence for each sense (e.g. I see ). Then draw and color their mental pictures, if time allows. (I think that the illustrations in this picture book are almost the best part, which makes me hesitant to use visualization also because students will not experience the pictures). So sorry this is so long. Please help! I really want this to go well Thank you sooo much! =)2nd grade books.. help?
Hello. I am planning on tutoring a 2nd grade child in English for the whole year, twice a week. I will be teaching things such as grammar, spelling, how to use punctuation, reading comprehension, part of speeches, etc. Can anyone recommend me a book that will tell me what a 2nd grader needs to learn in Language Arts/English. Something that has worksheets, preferably. I want a book that I can follow throughout the year and can also tell me how to teach these topics. Please recommend me a book! Thank you.
