Hello all. I am a reading specialist; I push-in to a third grade classroom in the morning, and I work with different groups, ostensibly on Guided Reading, but we do many other literacy-based activities. I was recently informed that I need to submit lesson plans two weeks in advance, and I am really struggling with writing them. For example, this is what I want to do with one of the groups, for one of the twenty minutes I see them: "Students will re-read text. They will then partner up and create a short story about another thing Danny and his Dinosaur might do. They will use a graphic organizer to help them." I feel like I am a failure because I don't know what more to write. I know there is supposed to be an objective and a purpose and all that...but what is it? Objective: have students re-read text...etc. Purpose? For them to read and write? Help! Also, what resources have actually HELPED you do this?
