Over the past few months, it has become quite evident that the students, in one of our grade one classes, are well behind where they should be. It is also quite evident that the students are falling behind because their teacher does not know how to effectively teach reading and writing. This year, one of my roles in the school is to do some coaching with the teachers. Starting next week, I will be working in this particular grade one class, once a week, to help improve their writing. Since there are only seven weeks left of school, I want to make the most of my time in the class. Does anyone have any good ideas for a writing lesson/activity that I could model for this teacher and her class?
