Lesson Plan : Reading Thermometers
Teacher Name: | Ms. Brister |
Grade: | Grade 1 |
Subject: | Math |
Topic: | Looking at thermometers and learning how to read them |
Content: | Reading temperatures to the nearest ten degrees and two degrees. Vocabulary- Thermometer, Degree, Farenheit |
Goals: | Students will be able to understand the color zones on the class thermometer poster. Students will be able to tell the temperature to the nearest ten degrees as well as temperatures between multiples of 10. |
Objectives: | Students will participate during class discussions, students will stay quiet when other classmates are talking, students will be able to answer given questions about the thermometer. |
Materials: | Everyday Mathematics Teacher Edition, Math Journal, Pencil, Class thermometer poster, Crayons. |
Introduction: | Teacher will start the lesson by having the class sitting on the back carpet. Teacher will review the color zones on the class thermometer poster by asking questions like those on page 256. The teacher will ask questions like on the middle of page 256 to review how thermometers work. |
Development: | Teacher will set the red ribbon on the class thermometer poster to show various temperatures, and then have students report the temperatures to the nearest ten degrees. |
Practice: | Students will start with temperatures that are multiples of 10 and then temperatures between multiples of 10. Teacher will then turn over the class thermometer poster to show side B and ask the questions that are on the middle of page 257 and the top of page 258. |
Accommodations: | Teacher will work closely with E.D., J.J., and E.T. during math. I will have the students that finish early work on math boxes for extra practice. I will seperate J.J., C.D., A.V., L.R., M.J., throughout the math lesson. |
Checking For Understanding: | Teacher will walk around while student are completing journal pages or math boxes. Make notes on how students are doing with journal pages or math boxes. Assess students on assessment chart on math journal page 65 to see how students did with telling degrees on the thermometer. Check to see how students did with staying on task and following directions throughout the lesson. |
Closure: | Teacher will go over independent work, summarize lesson, and ask for any questions students may have. |
Evaluation: | The assessment chart will be used for evaluating what students understand or have trouble with. Also, notes on behaviors throughout lesson will be looked at and recorded. |
Teacher Reflections: | The lesson went rather well. Students seems engaged throughout the lesson. I was pleased with the results of the math journals. Students really seemed to show understanding of thermometers, especially how to read temperatures. |
