1 Hook

Activity: Other — Camera/Photo Taking

Teacher will direct the children around the school in and outside to photograph them with their Flat Wayne they have created.  We will go to the cafeteria, play area, gymnasium, art and music rooms, and our classroom to take the photos with out Flat Wayne cutouts.

Student Instructions

Children will bring their Flat Wayne around the school to be photographed at different locations.

2 Direct Instruction

Teacher will show the children what it looks like to upload the photos we just took of us and our Flat Wayne cutouts to our classroom Instagram and Facebook pages.  We will discuss what we can say to go along with these posts as well.  Instagram will be for us and the participating classrooms to keep tabs on Flat Wayne and his journey.  Facebook will be to keep parents up to date on Flat Wayne's journey and what we're doing with him in our classroom.  

3 Guided Practice

Teacher will ask two children to take 4 photos of their Flat Wayne around our classroom in the designated areas to demonstrate for the other kids.  They will then airdrop their photos to my iPad so we can upload them to our social media pages if we choose to.

Two children will demonstrate for the rest of the class.  This activity will be their independent practice portion of the lesson.
