Language Arts Lesson
For my Language Arts Lesson I used the great book Puff and the Magic Dragon. The students weren't familiar with it, which made me feel old, but was good too because they were excited and interested throughout the book. They asked many great questions, and we had a great talk about what exactly imagination was and how we use it. The activity portion of my lesson was a writing prompt titled My Adventure With Puff. The kids loved this and wrote some funny and entertaining stories. There were also heart warming stories, such as one girl who would ride Puff to Texas to see the family she never sees anymore. I also had drawing paper ready for the students who got stuck with their writing or finished early. These pictures were great. I am going to put them all together and make a "Mrs. Strouse's First Graders Puff Story" for their classroom.
