Teacher Name:

Grade:
 Grade 1
Subject:
 Math

Topic:
 Classification by 3 Attributes
Content:
 Sort and Classify
Goals:
 Sort and classify objects by three attributes
Objectives:
 The student will sort objects by classifying according to shape, size and color.
Materials:
 attribute cards showing various shapes that different colors and sizes, attribute map
Introduction:
 I will divide the class into separate groups according to a given attribute (i.e. boys/girls, shoe types, color of shirt). The children will have to guess why certain students are in certain groups.
Development:
 The students will look at the attribute cards. They will divide the cards according to their attributes. We will divide by color, then size, then shape.
Practice:
 I will introduce the attribute map. As a group we will complete a pathway with their cards according to how many attributes they must be different. For example, if there are 2 line connected the path stepping stone then the student must put down a card that is different in 2 ways.
Accommodations:
 My group will only consist of gifted students. We will be working with 3 attributes rather than only 2 attributes as stated in the NC curriculum. If needed, a partner may be enlisted to help.
Checking For Understanding:
 I will monitor continually the progress of each student. If there is an error, I will have them start again from that point. Otherwise, I will give verbal affirmation to let them know they are on track.
Closure:
 We will sum up the definition of an attribute. We will line up according to given attributes (i.e. The students with jeans, tie shoes and brown eyes may line up.)
Evaluation:
 The teacher will note how much of the attribute map was completed.
Teacher Reflections:
 I will think about what areas may have stumped a child. In the past, Iíve noticed that the students usually do better with this activity with a partner, rather than alone or in a group (small enough for some discussion but not really lost/isolated)
