Literary Foundations: Lists

What do you notice?
  • Making the family connection: Discuss: How do lists help us in our every day life?
  • Materials: family learning journals/paper, pencils, colored pencils, and/or crayons. Remind them to open their journals to the next available page and date it. Don’t forget to have them label the top of the page with today’s learning topic/skill.
  • Today’s literary connection: Holiday Lists. Guided enquiry: As adults, we use lists in our every day organization (shopping, to-do planning, packing/trip preparations, building projects, etc.). Share: Why lists are an important literary skill in which every day life becomes organized. *Practicing listing skills helps all learners with an opportunity to write practical non-fiction for every day life. The slide above provides a variety of holiday “purposeful” practice. Thinking logically and organizing the steps in a logical sequence is a life skill that will lower anxiety… adds structure… and satisfactorily shows accomplishments. Holiday lists can be fun, creative, and so helpful during the hustle and bustle of this month.
  • Next: Discuss which types of lists would help your family’s holiday? Ask each member to draft a different list (don’t forget to add creative designs).
