Grade:

Subject:
 Literature Activities

Topic:
 Sequencing and Logic
Content:
 Students will review Halloween vocabulary and will learn the sequence and step by step process of making a Jack-O-Lantern
Goals:
 1.Students will learn Jack-O-Lantern song through repetition 2. To learn the concept of sequencing and step by step processes 3. To identify the sequence of making a Jack-O-Lantern
Objectives:
 1. Students will work collaboratively together to create the sequence of Jack-O-Lanterns 2. Students will learn key concepts through asking questions and working together 3. Will apply knowledge gained from experience - working together to create the sequence
Materials:
 1. Finger Frolic book by Liz Cromwell, Dixie Hibner and John Faitel 2.Chart Paper 3. Construction Paper 4. Sequence cards for each Jack O Lantern sequence step for each group Glue
Introduction:
 To introduce the topic of Jack-O-Lanterns and to review the Halloween vocabulary i will read them a Halloween story called Scary, Scary Halloween.
Development:
 I will teach the students the poem called "I am Jolly Jack-O-Lantern" and the actions that follow. The poem goes through the steps of how a Jack-O-Lantern is made so it fits perfectly in with sequencing. I will demonstrate by reading the poem first and then the students will learn and follow through repetition.
Practice:
 The students will work together as a class using the sequence cards to put them into the proper order of making a Jack-O-Lantern. I will than split the students into small groups.
Checking For Understanding:
 Walk around the different groups to make sure that everyone is on task and working together and provide feedback or help if needed.
Evaluation:
 Check each groups work at the end of the lesson to make sure all the cards are in the proper order
Teacher Reflections:
 Overall i thought the lesson went well the students seemed to enjoy the story and the song. If i was to repeat the lesson i would maybe teach the song a few days before so the students have time to practice it each day as it took quite awhile to learn and took up a lot of time. The sequencing went well and the students were able to successfully put the cards in the correct order.
