For my second practicum, I wrote two lesson plans because I wanted to allow my student to choose what book he wanted to read. I planned a shared reading lesson over The Story of Henny Penny by Richard Carson and an interactive reading lesson over I Think I Forgot by Mercer Mayer. Planning for two different books was not difficult, but I had to keep in mind that my student was only going to have the opportunity to read one of the books, and in the end, my student chose to read The Story of Henny Penny.

Then he used the story cards to retell the story. I labeled clothes pins with numbers one through six and had them on a piece of yarn to symbolize that the events on the card happened in order to form a whole story.
