Thanksgiving Feast Writing
I decided to create a lesson for students on what their Thanksgiving Feasts look like. I wanted to create a graphic organizer that they could use to pave their writing. What I did was shared a mind map with them and walked them through how to fill in the map. Next, I walked them through step by step on taking their ideas and formulating them into sentence on the hamburger graphic organizer. Finally, we are taking those sentences and turning them into a paragraph by them. Some of the features that I used include dictation and voice read. I showed the students how they can read what they wrote and attach it to the document for me to listen back to for self reflection and spoken content.
When I first started to create this lesson I was a bit nervous. I am not very I-pad savvy and was nervous at delivering a lesson in this method. As I walked through the lesson with the students I realized they were engaged and enjoying writing for the first time this school year. I felt very confident in that I was making a difference in a positive manner with an area of learning they have been so negative about. I look forward to using this lesson in the years to come and creating others just like it.
