Lesson plans and teaching resources

Adventurous Magic
This writing activity is inspired by Bruce Coville's Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher , and students will be asked to write about an original magical object that they have discovered in the "Elves' Magic Supplies," just as Jeremy does in the story. Students will need to imagine themselves in the magic store where the proprietor tells them to look around until they find what they "need." The students will then create an organized scene based upon the magical object and how they will take care of it or use it, depending on their choice of objects. This lesson focuses on organization and idea development.
