Open Class - Demo Class

Hi there guys,

I have been aked to have an open class with my 4th graders - one class for 4th grade low level and another for 4th grade high level students. I have also been asked to do a lesson formy 6th grade students - low and advanced levels.

The parents will come so it is going to be important that I do something that is really good :)
I am wondering if anyone has any experience with open classes - any ideas, thoughts, opinions, materials?
I am sooooooooooooooo stressed about it and would really appreciate any guidance - thanks so much in advance!

I taught middle school students in Korea and had to do open classes.  This was about 4 years ago, though.  I believe for one of my open classes, I did a lesson about describing and used superheroes.  If you think it would be helpful to you, I can try to dig it up.  Of course, the students were a few years older than yours, so I am not sure how it would work.  But perhaps you could adapt it?

Follow the usual structure for the lesson plan but use variety of activities that your students enjoy (you know them better) Use fun ways for pairing them up/grouping 
Don īt forget to praise your students for good work and assess their performance as well.
Wind off with some coolers or a song and your classes will be a success.
