This was a great resource in creating a balanced literacy lesson. The organization and depth of the lesson was well thought-out and easy to understand and follow. Another element I was able to add in creating my lesson and minilessons, was the concept of onomatopoeia. While the book only has two examples, there are plenty of illustrations that students could manipulate to add onomatopoeia or they could draw their own illustrations and ass it there.

Once again that you so much for sharing your work!

I am planning on using this lesson along with our science unit on worms and soil. I think letting students observe real worms would be a great way to make the lesson more hands-on and fun for students. Also, some gummy worm candies would be a great treat at the end of the lesson (if you are okay with giving students candy)!
