I have to come up with a lesson plan for 1st graders. (MATH) and this is all I have come up with :
tudents will be able to partition circles, rectangles, and other masses into two and four equal shares. They will be able to describe the shares using the words halves, fourths, and quarters, and will be able to use the phrases half of, fourth of, and quarter of. They’ll be able to describe the whole as two of, or four of the shares. They will also come to understand for these examples that decomposing into more equal shares creates smaller shares.
Here are the instructions:
Lesson Title: What do you call this lesson?
Area of Study: What is the subject area (e.g. social studies, English, math)?
Teacher Name: Enter your professional name here.
Grade Level: For what grade level is this lesson plan designed (6th)?
Duration of Instruction: How long will it take to conduct this lesson?
Before you write your lesson objectives, locate the Educational Standards appropriate to your state, content area, and grade level(s) that match the goals of your lesson, and select them to be included in your lesson plan.
Instructional Objectives should describe observable student performances related to enduring understandings. Objectives make clear the types of performances that you will expect from students, including performances that indicate student knowledge, understanding, skills and abilities, and attitudes. Carefully constructed lesson objectives are grade appropriate, align with national, state or local standards, and ultimately determine the teaching procedures and assessment strategies you will use to ensure students reach the objectives you set in place.
Limit your lesson to one or two objectives.
State your reasons for teaching this lesson and your primary goals for learning. Include information about the learning styles or developmental levels of students. Tell how it links with process skills, Bloom’s Taxonomy, Gardners Theories, or with other disciplines. Explain why these methods support the content that you present.
Begin the lesson with a “hook” that creates interest, arouses the motivation of the students, and prepares them for coming activities. An introductory activity can also enable you to assess the prior knowledge of your students so you can more carefully plan for instructional modifications during the course of the lesson. Your imagination, creativity, and prior experiences as a student and teacher are called for here, but be sure to stay true to your lesson content, instructional objectives, and the standards.
Carefully designed lesson activities and procedures are at the heart of your lesson. The activities and less on procedures you use will be largely determined by the instructional objectives you have written. Choose activities that students will want to do and teaching strategies that will help you meet your lesson objectives.
Materials and Resources
List the materials and resources needed for the lesson. You must be certain that the proper and necessary materials and equipment are available for the lesson.
It is important to adapt your instruction to meet the needs of all learners. List your adaptations to differentiate learning.
What are the criteria by which you will evaluate student performance as you teach this lesson?
List the many methods by which you can assess the effectiveness of your lesson.
