Lesson Plan : Sequencing Stories

Teacher Name:
 Renee Rolph
 Literature Activities

 Appreciating Literacy and making real-life connections through media.
 Students will explore literacy by reading a book and discussing with the class as a whole. Students will sequence the story through media/art activity and make connections to real-life situations. Vocabulary will include: Title, Author, Illustrator, characters and Plot.
 Students will be able to name the Title, Author, Illustrator, Characters and Plot in a simple story being read to them. Students will create a sequencing activity to reflect the book they heard by the teacher. They will discuss and make real-life associations.
 Students will listen to a story being read to them, participate in discussion and will recall parts of the book, plot of the story and outcomes with 80% accuracy. Student will attempt to complete activity with 80% completion.
 Book being read to them (Rainbow Fish,) construction paper, magazines,glue, scissors, pre-printed fish cut-out for each student and glitter.
 I will grab the students attention by playing a game of hot potato with a fish bean bag. When the game is finished, I will ask the students to name the animal, then ask some general questions (where he lives, what he eats, what color, etc.) I will then tell th class we will be reading a book about a fish and how he goes from having no friends to lots of friends.
 I will begin to read the book, asking students to name the title, author and illustrator. I will provide feedback either answer they give. As I read, I will use the vocab. words for character and plot. I will explain them as I continue. I will use use ordinal words (first, nexy, last) to help students attend to the plot of the story. After I finish, I will ask comprehension questions to students, asking their opinions about the book. I will allow for discussion and for students to share any fish experiences that they may have.
 The class will transition to arts and crafts where I will explain how the fish shared his scales with his friends to be nice and remind them how we need to share in the classroom. I will have them go through magazines to find toys and items they think they would share.
 Students with fine motor delays will receive assistance with cutting and also turning paeges in magazines if needed. All students will be given adequate time to complete project and students will visual impairments or behavior delays will be seated closer to book and teacher throughout lesson.
Checking For Understanding:
 As students complete their fish, I will go aorund and ask them one on one what the fish did in the story. I will then have them tell me what they would share with their friends and make a note for future use.
 At the end of the day or week, I will have students show and tell with their work. They will name their fish and stand up in front of the class, explaining what they would share with their peers.
 Students will be evaluated in if they can recall any information from the book, their effort on their art activity and their ability to attempt to tell about their fish at show and tell.
Teacher Reflections:
 I feel that this is a great lesson for not only literacy and understanding a story being read to them, but more for reflecting on friendship and sharing. Plus, the ability to show off their work will encourage them to continue to work hard and allows others to enjoy it with them!
