Balanced Literacy Project

Fourth graders review all the materials they've studied about the rain forest and begin to organize their research paper by choosing a topic. They begin by rereading the introductory book, "The Great Kapok Tree," by Lynne Cherry as well as work on a graphic organizer for the beginning of their research paper.

I learn from the lessons that Lesson Planet helps me find! There are always ideas and lessons that inspire my teaching. I work with second chance learners at a charter high school. I am starting my sixth year of teaching at this level. I am a poet and writer currently working on my second novel for young adults.
