  • Begin two concept maps on the board by drawing two ovals and writing the words "fairy tale" in the first, and "verb" in the second.
  • Say, "Before the lesson today, we will share what we already know about fairy tales by writing a few words, a sentence, or drawing an image that connects to fairy tales. We will do the same for the word verb. After the lesson, we will write down the new things we learned around our concept maps! The purpose of a concept map is to show, in a visual way, what we know about a topic. We can also share what we learned about a topic using a concept map."
  • Give the students a few minutes to share their ideas and record them on the whiteboard.
