Language Lesson Plans
Here are some lesson plans that address standards and integrate
technology and your curriculum.
Integration Scope and Sequence, though pre-dating Canvastic,
has dozens of K-5 lesson plans that integrate standards based curriculum
and publishing software. Canvastic will be an excellent tool for
many of those activities.
Super Sentence starts with a boring
sentence like “The dog ran.” Use it as an example to
show how to create a Super Sentence that tells how, where, when,
and describes the subject. Have them create their own boring sentence.
Then they change it into a Super Sentence. Then they illustrate
it. Grades 1-3.
Wanted Poster has the students create
a flyer for a character from a book they have read. The imaginary
situation is that their favorite character has developed amnesia
and must be found. Using the publishing tools in Canvastic the students
not only draw the character's likeness but write in a descriptive
paragraph about him/her. Grades 3-6.
Write a Book(let) is a generic plan for
publishing material in a booklet form. Publishing in this form can
make any curriculum integration motivating and useful. Any content
that has more than one part can be adapted to be published into
a booklet. These booklets do not require printing on both sides
of the paper!
