Lesson Plan (EDIT 3218) Teacher: Kelcie Mann Subject: English/Language Arts Compound

Words

Date: November 3, 2013 Grade: Kindergarten

Standard: ELAR
(5) Reading/Vocabulary Development. Students understand new vocabulary and use it correctly when reading and writing. Students are expected to: (B) Recognize that compound words are made up of shorter words

TEKS for Technology Application:


(1) Creativity and innovation. The student uses creative thinking and innovative processes to construct knowledge and develop digital products. The student is expected to: (D) Create and execute steps to accomplish a task Objective (Explicit): Students will be able to identify compound words. Students will be able to give examples of compound words.

Evidence of Mastery (Measurable):


Include a copy of the lesson assessment. Provide exemplar student responses with the level of detail you expect to see. Assign value to each portion of the response Throughout the lesson, I will ask the students questions that pertain to the lesson objectives. Because the topic of compound words has been covered before, I even begin the lesson with a review-type question, asking the class what they remember about compound words, and then recovering the material. I am expecting high quality student responses for this lesson, seeing as it is largely a reteach. I do know that some students are struggling with the concept of compound words (hence, the reteaching lesson!), but I feel that this is because they need further practice and instruction on this topic. I am not having an exact assessment for this lesson however, I do plan to check for student understanding based on the responses that I receive for the comprehension questions. There will be many questions asked throughout the lesson, offering all students an opportunity to express their knowledge. The interactive games that the class will play at the end of the lesson will also help me gauge students understandin g, by the number of correct responses.

Sub-objectives:
Students will learn what compound words are. Students will be able to identify compound words from a series of words. Students will be able to give examples of compound words.

Sub-objectives, SWBAT (Sequenced from basic to complex):


How will you review past learning and make connections to previous lessons? What skills and content are needed to ultimately master this lesson objective? How is this objective relevant to students, their lives, and/or the real world? I will review past learning in my opening activity and throughout the remainder of the lesson, asking students to recall information that they have already been taught about compound words. This will be achieved when the students watch the PowerPoint presentation, answer questions, and play the instructional game at the end of the lesson. I believe that the class needs further practice with and a simple reteach of the concept of compound words to fully master this lessons objectives. Learning what compounds are and how to use them is very relevant to students lives because the English language constantly uses compound words in our communication, including use in both spoken and written correspondence.

Materials (Including Technology Tools):


Computer PowerPoint presentation Smart Board
1

Smart Board pen Wild Word Round Up video from GetReadyToRead.org Interactive instructional game from Turtle Diary Visuals that establish the purpose of the lesson, preview the organization of the lesson, and include internal summaries

The Technology Tools Should Have:


of the lesson. Examples, illustrations, analogies, and labels for new concepts and ideas. Logical sequencing and segmenting. All essential information and no irrelevant, confusing, or nonessential information. Incorporate multimedia and technology. I will be using several different technology tools during this lesson, including a PowerPoint presentation, an instructional video, and an interactive game. These all provide many different visuals for students to learn the concept of compounds words in a variety of ways. The PowerPoint presentation provides visuals for the times when I will be asking the students questions and when I will give them examples of compound words. The video is both audio and visual information about compound words. The instructional game allows the students to be interactive, with visual information and verbal instructions, and gives immediate feedback about correct and incorrect answers. All of the different technologies used in this lesson are helping to build upon the students understanding of compound words. Many different examples of compound words are given, in my PowerPoint presentation, in the video, and in the game. My lesson has logical organization in that I review compound words with the class at the beginning of the lesson, and then allow them to have more practice and become more familiar with this concept through a video and games. The different levels of the game provided on Turtle Diary have logical sequencing to increase student learning. Students are first asked to build compound words (level one), then to identify compound words (level two), and lastly to find compound words from a group of words (level three). All of the information in this lesson is relevant to the topic of compound words.

Activity:
Opening (state objectives, connect to previous learning, and make relevant to real life)
How will you activate student interest? How will you connect to past learning? How will you present the objective in an engaging and student-friendly way? How will you communicate its importance and make the content relevant to your students? I will activate student interest by giving them the list of four words, and showing them the slide with the pictures and text, asking What type of words are these? This lesson is directly connected to past learning because the concept of compound words has been previously taught. I will further help connect it to past learning by asking what the class remembers about compound words. I will present the objective in an engaging and student-friendly way by making the PowerPoint presentation visually stimulating and interactive. I will ask the class many different questions, giving everyone a chance to respond. The students will be able to use the SmartBoard technology to write on the presentation. I plan on discussing with students how frequently we see and use compound words when we communicate. I will give many different examples of compound words, and ask the students to give me a few examples, as well.
I will begin this lesson by stating the objectives, and asking the students what they remember about compound words. I will then list off four words to the class (airplane, football, cupcake, and butterfly), and ask them what type of words these are. After discussing with the students that these words are all compound words, I will tell them that compound words are all around us, and that we use them very often when we communicate.

Teacher Will:
How will you model/explain/demonstrate all knowledge/skills required of the objective? How will you address misunderstandings or common student errors? How will you check for understanding? How will you explain and model behavioral expectations?
I will model the concept of compound words by saying the words to the students, and then saying them again with the class. I will explain that compound words are made when two smaller words are joined together, and that these new words have meanings all their own. I will address student errors (such as wrong answers to a question) by asking the student if they would like to ask a peer for help with the question, and I will reiterate information as many times as necessary to ensure student comprehension. I will check for understanding by asking students many different questions throughout the lesson, giving all students the chance to answer. I will also check for understanding by allowing the students to use the SmartBoard technology to demonstrate what they know. I will remind the students the behaviors that are expected of them in large group lessons, such as sitting crisscross applesauce with hands in their laps, and raising their hands when they have answers. I will remind them that the Blurt chart may need to be used if they forget to raise their hands when answering questions or taking a turn.

Student Will:
What will students be doing to actively capture and process the new material? How will students be engaged?

Students will be sitting in the large group area of the classroom, facing the SmartBoard. The students will have many different opportunities throughout the lesson to answer questions that I pose to them, such as What do you remember about compound words? and Can you think of any compound words yourself?. The students will be further engaged in the lesson when they watch the video Wild Word Round Up, as it provides a fun way to review compound words with silly characters and setting. Students will be very interactive with the lesson when the instructional games portion begins. The website that I have chosen has three levels of games, which provides many different options for the students to show their level of understanding of the concept. There will be a chance for each student to play the game. In addition, if a student is unsure of an answer to a question or gives an incorrect answer, I will use the peer-check system to give students a chance to ask a friend to help them get the correct answer, meaning that students will be engaged in helping friends during the lesson. The class will be expected to listen and pay attention to the different parts of the lesson, including the PowerPoint, video, and game.

Sub-Objective

The Technology Tools should:


Support the lesson objectives. Sustain students attention. Provide time for reflection. Are relevant to students lives. Induce student curiosity and suspense. Incorporate multimedia and technology. Incorporate resources beyond the school curriculum texts. All of the technology tools that I will be using during this lesson (the PowerPoint presentation, the video, the instructional game, and the use of the SmartBoard) support the lesson objectives. I believe that it will be far more interesting to students to learn from technology than from worksheets (another common method of teaching this concept), because it allows them to be active and engaged with the material. There will be time for reflection throughout the lesson, even in the very beginning, as I ask students to recall what they already know about compound words. Further time will be provided at the end, when I close the lesson with another review question. The technology tools are very relevant to students lives, because these are things that they see in the classroom and that are incorporated into their lessons every day. Students will be curious about what video we will be watching (theyve never seen this one!) and will be suspenseful for the games at the end of the lesson. Multimedia and technology are used throughout, with the original PowerPoint, the Wild Word Round Up video, and the leveled games. School curriculum texts are not being used in my lesson I feel that the methods of teaching I am proposing here are more effective and engaging than textbooks or worksheets.

Teacher Will:
How will you model/explain/demonstrate all knowledge/skills required of the objective? How will you address misunderstandings or common student errors? How will you check for understanding? How will you explain and model behavioral expectations?
I will explain what compound words are after asking the class to recall information previously learned about compound words. I will model how to create compound words using the examples I created for the PowerPoint presentation. I will demonstrate how to play each level of the instructional game by first completing a question myself. I will address misunderstandings or other errors by asking the student if they would like to turn to a peer near them for help. By doing this, I ensure that the correct answer is given, and that students take ownership of the knowledge themselves in helping their classmates. I will check for understanding by the responses that I get to the questions I plan to ask throughout the lesson, the assistance peers are able to provide, and the students ability to play the games. Behavior expectations will be reviewed before the lesson even begins. I will remind the students what their job entails when the whole class is on the carpet for large group activities.

Student Will:
What will students be doing to actively capture and process the new material? How will students be engaged?

Students will be engaged in this lesson in different ways. During some parts, such as the definition portion of the PowerPoint and during the video, the students will be expected to listen actively. Students have the opportunity to answer different questions posed throughout the presentation, and to give examples of compound words during the PowerPoint. The instructional games will allow each individual to practice their skills and knowledge of compound words with support from myself and classmates.

Sub-objective

The Technology Tools Should:


Support the lesson objectives. Sustain students attention. Provide time for reflection. Are relevant to students lives. Induce student curiosity and suspense. Incorporate multimedia and technology. Incorporate resources beyond the school curriculum texts. All activities in this lesson pertain to and support the lesson objectives. The lesson should keep students attention because they are able to work directly with the material and have many opportunities to be interactive and have fun learning. Time for reflection is provided as students are asked to respond to questions, give their own examples of compound words, and help peers if they are struggling. I will also review everything the students have discussed about compound words up to this point at the end of the lesson. The lesson is relevant to students lives because compound words are all around us, and we use them on a regular basis when speaking and writing. The technology tools are also very relevant to students because these are things that they see used in the classroom each day to instruct them. I fully expect the students to stay focused on the lesson because they will be curious about the video and the games we will play, and will find the activities fun and engaging. Technology is used in every portion of this lesson plan! I will not include any work with school curriculum texts in this lesson.

Closing/Student Reflection/Real-life connections:


How will students summarize and state the significance of what they learned? Why will students be engaged?
Students will have the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned during the instructional games, and in response to the closure question at the end of the lesson. I will ask them why they think that it is important
4

to know about compound words (reasons which I will have stated multiple times during the lesson). Students will be engaged because this lesson invites them to become hands-on with learning all about compound words through brainstorming examples of compound words, watching a video that helps explain them in a fun way, and playing games that relate to the subject. The students will be allowed to come up one at a time to each have a turn on a level of the game, and can also provide peer support if and when needed. All of the activities will allow me to determine mastery of the subject based on students responses.
