MY FAVORITE THING - LESSON PLAN

 

Students write about their favorite thing. Includes printable teaching worksheet.

 

Suggested Grades:

1st Grade - 2nd Grade - 3rd Grade

 

Overview:

Students of all ages often have difficulty deciding what to write about (topic/subject), and what to say about their topic.

 

This lesson will help students pick a topic and write about it using what is familiar—their senses.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MY FAVORITE THING

 

Goals:

This lesson will assist students in:

  • Choosing a subject (an object)

  • Describing their object

  • Thinking beyond the visual and using all five senses

This lesson is designed to assist students in avoiding the "I don't know what to say" dilemma and to assist reluctant writers by writing about a favorite thing.

 

This lesson can be incorporated with many areas of writing you are currently focusing on in the classrooms, such as:

 

• Spelling
• Grammar
• Punctuation
• Sentence Formation
• Conveying Ideas

 

Objectives:

Students will choose a topic to write about and describe the object using all five senses. For those objects that cannot be described by a particular sense (a teddy bear does not have a taste, for example), students are asked to either write two entries for a different sense or use their imagination to describe how they think the object would taste, smell, or sound.

 

Materials:

Procedure:

Begin by asking students to name some of their favorite things (a favorite toy, a pet, a favorite place). List these on the board. When ready, have students describe their favorite thing using the worksheet below.

 

Students may work individually or in small groups.

 

Assessment:

Observe students' progress. Collect worksheets at the end of the session.
