Learning Context:

Slide 3

Explanation of the Mini Lesson…

  • We read the book If the Dinosaurs Came Back by Bernard Most. This story contains several main ideas (topic sentences) but no supporting details or elaboration.

  • After reading the story aloud, we discussed the difference between topic sentences and supporting details.

  • We explained that this book contained no supporting details and that we could make the story more interesting by adding them ourselves.

Slide 4

Explanation of the Mini Lesson…

  • We modeled how to add supporting details to a topic sentence by using the first line of the book. As a class, we created three supporting details for the sentence “If the dinosaurs came back, they would carry my daddy to work and back.”

  • We gave the students a slip of paper with a topic sentence from the book.

  • They were expected to write at least three supporting details or “tell me more” sentences about the main idea.

  • At the completion of the lesson, we reread the book using the supporting details that the students had written.

  • We discussed how much more interesting the book became when the supporting details were added to the story.

Post Mini Lesson Expectations

  • During the prewriting phase of the writing process, the students create a flow map that allows them to sequence the main events of their story.

  • Underneath each main idea, they will now be expected to write supporting details that elaborate on the main idea.

    • Second graders are expected to add one supporting detail

    • Third graders are expected to add three supporting details.

  • With future writing pieces, the students will be able to generate the expected number of supporting details for each main idea in their stories.
