For one of my classes this semester we've had to creating lesson plans. We've had to use Core Curriculum Standards, websites, other resources, and its been a lot of fun. I've been creating several different plans that have to do with reading comprehension, writing, etc. I've planned one whole lesson around fables and fairy tales that help kids map out the plot, describe characters, and identify setting. I also created a lesson that requires my students to do a presentation on an animal of their choice. After I finished this assignment, this was the first thing that came to mind.
This just made all excited for when i actually get to start teaching!
