Lesson Plan : Helping Others

Teacher Name:
 Christina Gomba
Grade:
 Kindergarten
Subject:
 Social Studies

Topic:
 Families and Communities
Content:
 Having families and the community work together to fulfill basic needs.
Goals:
 To have the students identify ways to work together to meet basic needs.
Objectives:
 TLW discuss ways their families and communities can work together to meet basic needs. TLW write a sentence to describe how they can help their families.
Materials:
 BrainPOP.com tumblebooks.com
Introduction:
 We will begin by reading the story: Corduroy Helps Out.
Development:
 We will first talk about different ways that we can help in the community and with our families. We will create a map on the board to go over these different ways.
Practice:
 We will write the following sentence: I can _______ to help the Earth. And we will write down possible things we can do to help the world.
Accommodations:
 Some students will need half of their sentence already started for them, and they will need to end the sentence. Other students may write a sentence about what they can do for their family, and then what they can do for their community.
Checking For Understanding:
 I will observe as they are writing in their journals. Also, their final product will be a good indication of whether they can share what families can do and communities can do to meet basic needs.
Closure:
 On the carpet, the students will have the opportunity to share their sentences with the class.
Evaluation:
 Some students may illustrate the various ways to help out in the community and with their families. We could also have a class discussion on this topic.
Teacher Reflections:
 The story was very motivating, since it was a pop-up book. Next time, I would make the independent practice more motivating.
