Writing With a Purpose

Third graders read "Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse" as a class. They brainstorm reasons for writing a letter to someone they know and discuss how the character in the story felt after writing the letter to her teacher. To end the lesson plan, they write a letter to someone they have been upset with after completing a graphic organizer.

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.
