Writer’s Workshop Mini-Lesson Plan
Lesson Focus: Words All Around Us GLCE:W.SP.00.02
Introduction: Teacher points out that words are all around us. Students help label objects throughout the classroom.
Teaching: Set up a word wall that is used daily. Students need to take an active part in adding new words. Students will understand that words are placed on the wall alphabetically.
Active Involvement: Students will take an alphabet chart attached to a clipboard around the classroom. The goal would be to try to find a word for each letter.
Applying the Skill or Strategy:
• Students will recognize and use the words within the classroom in their journal writing.
• having interactive (magnetic / pocket chart) word walls would allow them to take words back to their table for writing.
• Students can also use thematic word wall charts as tools for their writing.
