Sample Lesson Plan

Bertha Said:

Does anyone have a sample lesson plan (even if blank) for the preschool setting competency goal 1 item 4?

We Answered:

That item is so hard, and is in the wrong competency! Lay it out on a grid on a piece of paper placed horizontally. At the top, list the focus of the week and the goals for the week.. Then divide it in 6 columns. Down the left hand column put Cognitive, Physical, Creative, Social/Emotional, Language and Adaptations. Label the other 5 columns Monday-Friday. Then fill in the grid.

how to prepare a lesson plan for K.G. children on time and days of the week?

We Answered:

When you talk about your calendar each day during circle time, that's the perfect time to learn the days of the week. We put them to music (The Bear Went over the Mountain is the tune) - OHHHHH there's 7 days in a week, 7 days in a week, 7 days in a week and I can name them all. There's Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, Saturday is the last day and I can name them all. We even know how to sign all the days of the week.
We have a toy clock that helps us with our learning time. It has the hands on it and then you push the button and it tells you the numbers. You can also teach the hours by "it's 9:00, time for school to start" "10:00, time for snack" "11:00 time for game" - just always use the time with it and they will definitely catch on. Keep it fun and interesting and you will be amazed at what they can pick up on and how quickly.

Mathew Said:

I am teaching english for the first time, could someone please help me some sample lesson plans?

We Answered:

I had the best seventh grade English teacher. He taught us so much without us even realizing that we were learning anything. It was great.

The first class he taught us about perspective. He let us look around his classroom for a minute. Then, he told us to either stand on top of our chair, or sit down on the floor. He told us to look around the room now and think about how different the room looked from that angle. Then he went on to tell us about perspective and what it means.

We did a unit on mysteries. We read three Sherlock Holmes stories, two of Poe's Auguste Dupin stories, and saw two movies-- "Young Sherlock Holmes" and "Clue". We had to write four essay-- One on each of Poe's stories, one for Sherlock Holmes, and one for Clue. It was good practice for writing essays, and we learned a lot about the outline of a mystery. After this, we partnered up and wrote our own mysteries. The super-detective I created became a major character of mine in stories I wrote afterwords.

When we were learning about the outline of an essay, he brought in a tape of commercials, which he played for us. We had to point out the clincher, the introduction, the conclusion, and all those things in each commercial. We separated the good commercials from the bad ones, and then wrote our own commercials for a sports drink we made up.

When we were learning about elements of literature, he seperated us into five groups and each group had to research a certain element, and then teach the class about it in a fun, creative way.

After reading the book "Tangerine", we were separated into groups again and made newspapers that dealt with issues in the story. Each newspaper had a weather report, a few editorials, a first page news story, a sports page, and a comic or cartoon.

When we read "Treasure Island", we did something similar to the project we did with plot, except this time we were researching either treasure, modern pirates, historical pirates, or ships. My group researched treasure, and we finished our presentation with a game of Jeopardy, with a treasure map style board.

The class was everybody's favorite class, I think. Throughout the year, we had a few major projects that lasted a few weeks, but in between we just had short lessons, vocabulary quizzes, spelling tests, and notes on grammar.

He didn't do this with our class because we were the Honors class and he trusted us, but with the regular classes, he gave occasional "D.I.R.T." quizes-- surprise "Did I Read This" quizes with a few questions about the novel the class was reading.

He was asking me about an idea he had for a new unit for his next class-- He was going to do this whole unit on fairy tales and use that to teach the class about plot, and read a novel related to the topic as they did that.

By the age of 13, most kids like to read in different ways, so leave it up to the class if they want to read in class or not. Kids like me liked to read ahead a lot, so we preferred to read at home, but others had a lot of questions to ask, so they liked to sit and read in class.

Also, if a story you're reading is going to have scary parts, warn the class about it. A few friends of mine had nightmares about "Murder in the Rue Morgue" when we read the beginning, so after that, our teacher let them leave the room while he was reading the gorey parts.

Good luck! If you would like to know more about what my English teacher taught us, just email me. =)
