Early Childhood Literature<br />Brindy Klym LAE4414<br />Lesson designed for grade 1<br />
Pattern Books!<br /> Also know as “predictable books.”<br /> Pattern books allow young readers to anticipate what is coming next in the story.<br />Early readers can read along to these types of books.<br />
Pre-Reading<br />I will begin by explaining the lifecycle of a butterfly, (introducing the new terms to the students that they will need to be familiar with for the story. )<br />The room will be decorated with these new terms, (caterpillars, cocoons, and butterflies) for the students to observe.<br />We will also review the days of the week together as a class before beginning the story. <br />
Reading<br />First, I simply read the book to the children while tracing the words and pointing out the pictures.<br />Next, I read the book again and had the students read along with me. <br />Finally, I read the book to the students and had them act out the stages of the butterfly. <br />
Post-Reading<br />After we have read the story, students will be familiar with the lifecycle of the butterfly.<br />They will individually create their own page of a book which depicts the physical changes that a caterpillar goes through in becoming a butterfly.<br />They will be able to use colors and be creative while designing their projects.<br />
