Hi everyone. I have a 30 minute demo lesson this week with a second grade ELA class of 18 students. I was told they have done a bit of poetry (color and acrostic poems). They are also starting nonfiction where they have to make their own nonfiction books. They have a basic understanding of nonfiction features. I have an idea to read a short nonfiction book on some type of an animal (I was thinking a butterfly for spring). Then I was going to group them up in maybe groups of 3 and have them fill in a blank butterfly picture with words that describe a butterfly and possibly color it. Each group would then have their own butterfly shape/theme poem. Is this too much to get done in 30 minutes? Anyone else have any other ideas?
