Hello! I have a demo lesson tomorrow for whole group Kindergarten and I have 30 minutes. I was thinking of doing it on opinion/persuasive writing. I was going to do a Read Aloud of either "Can I Have a Stegosaurus, Mom?" or "I Wanna Iguana" (but open to other suggestions). I may only read part of the book depending on time. Then, I was going to have them turn and talk to their partner about the character's opinion/how they tried to convince another character about what they wanted. Then I was going to do a shared writing - basically with me doing the same activity as they are doing but modeling it. I will come up with a sentence and have them help me spell the words. Then, I was going to give them a paper with a spot to draw their picture and to write. Should I give them a topic (such as write about a pet you would want, etc.) or let them be creative and write about anything they like/want and why? I was also going to create a chart with sentence stems such as "I think..", "I like..." etc. Any thoughts/feedback or anything I should change? I don't want the lesson to be too easy, but I don't want to make it too difficult either. I asked the P about the level of the students and he said they are in the summer program, and they have already completed Kindergarten but are on a Kindergarten level.
