We Saw Him at the Zoo

Explore sentence fluency and the rhythm it creates with new readers. Learners will listen to the language patterns in Is your Mama a Llama by Deborah Guarino. They will compose lyrics to a song for a class book entitled Mary Saw a Little Llama. Phonemic awareness is the focus of a mini-lesson counting syllables and choosing words to fit the pattern of the tune "Mary had a little Lamb." Each child writes and illustrates a page for the book using a favorite animal.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
