A. Choose a children’s book that is appropriate for a specific grade level (kindergarten, first, second, or third grade), taking into consideration the specific needs, interests, and reading levels of the students in the class.
1. Justify (suggested length of 1–2 pages) why the children’s book you selected is appropriate for the lesson being taught.
B. Using the book you selected as an anchor, design three lesson plans (using the attached “WGU Lesson Plan Format”) to teach the following reading/literacy skills for a specific grade level, kindergarten, first, second, or third grade:
1. Word recognition, phonics, or concepts of print (your choice)
2. Phonological or phonemic awareness (your choice)
3. Oral reading fluency
C. Incorporate a technology component into the lesson plan for the lesson you will teach.
