As the story is being read students will repeat counting the legs of each animal up to 10 Practice: 1. Students will be creating their own spiders, so I will show them a completed spider so they have a visual of what they will be creating 2. Count all together the number of legs the spider has Accommodations: Checking For Understanding: 1. Check to see each student counted how many legs there were 2. Ask students to circle the number of legs the spider has at the bottom of the page to check their number recognition Closure: 1. Have the students count to ten again to reinforce their counting skills Evaluation: 1. Check the students work at the end of the lesson to make sure it is fully completed Teacher Reflections: The lesson took longer than expected so I will make sure that I have a better estimate of how much time my lessons will take up. I also feel that i could have done a better job at managing the noise level and disruptions during the lesson. Overall the lesson was a success and the students loved the activity and the story.
