April 22, 2020: More About Settings, FB Live

by Maryellen Rooney Moreau April 22, 2020 1 min read

Yesterday’s mini-lesson featured an “at-home” assignment about a Farm. It was a paragraph about an upcoming trip to a farm and the animals expected in that setting. There were questions to answer about the actions within this setting with suggested answers. It ends with the question “What do they see at the farm?” to pull the text together. At the side of the page, there were small pictures ( barn, animals, tractor) to color. Those pictures could be cut out and utilized in a discussion to follow the filling out of the homework.

During the actual “doing” of the assignment, Casey and her mom did it earlier in the day. It took about a 15-minute time span, including the coloring of the animals, barn and tractor. The video re-cap was done about 3:45 in the afternoon. Time of day is important as well, as this is their usual morning routine especially during these uncertain times. In essence, this lesson was an information text which led to a personal narrative.

To broaden this lesson about settings and our conversation about a farm, we are providing other setting references: Big Red Barn by Margaret Wise Brown is the selection for today’s mini-lesson reading. Other suggestions are provided in the handout.
