Reflection: Lesson Planning Theme: Lesson learned - Section 2: Mini-Lesson


The terms Primary and Secondary are high-level words for third graders but they are great to introduce through today’s task. We’ve talked earlier in the week about how books often have more than one Theme and I had asked them to decide which was most important. Today, however, they can identify the most important Theme as the Primary, then include the other Themes as the Secondary. I also let the kids know that these terms are Tier 2 words.
