Demo Lesson - 3rd Grade Writing. Help!

Hello!

I am beyond excited that I was called back to teach a demo lesson. I have only taught grades PreK-1, so third grade is a bit foreign to me. However, I want to move up. I was asked to teach a 20 minute writing lesson to third graders. I was told that I will have access to a SmartBoard and the students all have chromebooks to help integrate technology. I believe they use Lucy Caulkins. Does anyone have an idea of a GREAT, but short writing lesson? I only have a few days to prepare.

Thank you in advance!

Try opinion/persuasive writing. It can be short and usually good responses. Google Lucy Caulkinís opinion or persuasive writing.

You're going to need a very small and specific objective for 20 minutes. I would find a mentor text to use (possibly only read a short portion of it). I love the site Writing Fix for mentor text ideas:

Have them work collaboratively, communicate, turn and talk, etc. Perhaps give sentence stems for them to use when talking to a partner. Give time for them at the end to share out. I would say focus on having them write 1-2 strong sentences focusing on one element. 20 minutes will fly!

Lucy is all about mini-lesson, purposeful practice, reflection.

Iíd maybe do poetry... like others said, thatís real quick. You could read a couple quick poems, introduce writing the poem, then get them started.

I've continued to think about this! If you could get your hands on The Writing Strategies Book by Jennifer Seravello, that would be full of good mini-lesson ideas.
