Lesson Plan #25


Lab 2
Firefighters
Date:
Monday, November 28, 2016
Supervisor:
Tayla Jones
Lead Teacher: Bethany Bennett Lesson #5
Children and Learning/Development Goals:
1. Cole-We have a goal to improve his fine motor skills. I can incorporate a fine motor
activity in the manipulatives center.
2. Scott- We have a goal to improve his speech, and fine motor skills. I will have an
activity where Scott has the opportunity to repeat things in gathering time.
3. Kyler- We have a goal to improve his fine motor strength like with zippers and
buttons. I can incorporate a fine motor activity into the manipulatives center.
4. Charlie C.- We have a goal to work on his letter sounds; specifically, the R and TH
sounds. Charlie can work on those sounds in the reading area and the teachers can
ask him to repeat words in the books that have those sounds.
5. Archer- Archer has a goal to follow directions. I could incorporate this into gathering
time where he has to follow the directions of have the blocks be closed and him
participating in what I am doing.
6. Ender-We have a goal to work on his emotional regulation. I can incorporate an
activity where there will be minimal turn taking but Ender still has to wait his turn for
something to happen.
7. Hollie-We have a goal to improve her social skills with the other children in the lab. I
can have an activity where Hollie has to work with another child to do the activity.
Preassessment and Findings:
1 Hyrum- When I asked Hyrum what he knew about firefighters he said, They put out
fires at your house. I asked him if they put out fires anywhere else and he said, Just
at your house.
2 Hollie- Hollie says she always has to practice for a fire at preschool. She said she liked
practicing when it was warm outside. She also said that firefighters slide down poles.
3 Brock-I asked Brock what could start a fire and he said anything can start a fire. I
asked him how he would know if there was a fire and he said there would be a loud
beeping noise.
4 Archer- I asked Archer what he would do if there was a fire and he demonstrated
stopping, dropping, and rolling.
5 Jackson said, Firemen take away the fires. When I asked them how they did that
and he said, I dont know. I probed him further and he said he thought maybe they
put it in a bag.
6 Lillian-Lillian said she has seen firefighters on TV and they rescue kittens in trees. She
also said they put out fires at home. When I asked her about fire safety she said that
you shouldnt start fires. I then asked her what she should do if a fire started and she
was inside. She said she would run out of the house as fast as she could.
7 Keith- Keith said that he wouldnt call the fire department to put out a fire because he
could just do it by himself with water from the sink or the bathtub.
8 Scott- Scott said that firemen were red and they have dogs.
9 Aidyn- Aidyn said firemen needed a firetruck and a big hose full of water. She said her
mom knows how to call the firemen.
10 Logan-Logan said that fires can start if you forget to turn off the candles and he could
stop forest fires because that is what the bear always says. When I asked him about
that he talked about how when he went camping him and his family always had to
make sure they put out their camp fire or else Yogi bear would cause a forest fire.

-None of the children knew how to contact a fireman if their house was on fire. Aidyn said
her mom knows who to call but I should teach the children who to call in case of an
emergency.
-I could teach the children what to do if their clothes caught on fire and about fire safety. A
lot of children didnt know proper fire safety.
-The children seem really interested in firemen and firetrucks since they love playing with
the firetrucks and a Charlie C and Coles mom keep asking about the firetruck lesson because
they are looking forward to it. o I can give the children the opportunity to see them by
contacting the local fire station.
-Keith thought that he could put out a fire on his own. This plays into knowing proper fire
safety and that he should never try to put out a fire on his own or go toward a dangerous
fire.
Ideas to be Emphasized:
1. Geckos have highly specialized toe pads kind of like suction cups. This enables them
to climb vertical surfaces (as long as they are smooth). They can even cross ceilings.
2. Geckos can shed their tails as a distraction to predators.
3. Geckos are nocturnal, meaning they are awake at night and sleep during the day.
Preschool Concepts or Skills:
1. Smooth
2. Textures
3. Wet

Location: South Playground

Activity Description: Children can use the


bean bag boards and beanbags to play.
Child Objective: Children will develop gross
motor skills by aiming and throwing with the
beanbags.
Intentional Teaching: Have the older
children throw from farther away and the
younger children throw closer. Show the
children how to throw the beanbags
underhand if they are having trouble. Ask the
children about distance and how far they think
they can throw it.
Activity Description: Children can play in
the sandbox hopping in between the stones
like being in the reptile environment.
*This relates to my ITBE that geckos have
highly developed toepads.
Child Objective: Children will work on their
gross motor skills by hopping between the
stones.
(Domain 2, Goal 17) hops forward on
two feet, then on one foot.
Intentional Teaching: Move the stones
closer or farther apart depending on ability.
Ask the students how far they can jump. Ask
the children if they would like to live in the
desert like some reptiles do.
Activity Description: The children can play
in the rocking boat with the other children.

Rocking boat (GG)

Child Objective: Children will work on their


balance as they get in and out of the boat and
rock it back and forth.
Intentional Teaching: Make sure the
children arent standing in the boat. Ask the
children about their dramatic play in the boat
or where they are sailing to.
GATHERING TIME

Transition
Animal Action (WR CDs Yellow 10) sing and dance to the Animal Action song with the children.
Finish with having the children crawl on the ground like geckos and onto the tape.
Description
Materials
Activity Name
Geckos have highly
specialized toe
pads. This enables
them to climb
vertical surfaces
(as long as they
are smooth). They
can even cross
ceilings.

Geckos can shed


their tails as a
distraction to
predators.

Geckos are
nocturnal, meaning
they are awake at
night.

Gecko felt story. Have the gecko start at the


bottom of the felt board and he will crawl all
around and up trees to catch the bugs.

-Gecko felt (IWP)

5 little bugs on the forest floor


Along came a gecko ... SLURP!!! (have the
children do the slurping/chomping sound with
me)
Now there are 4
4 little bugs on a kapok tree
Along came a gecko... SLURP!!!
Now there are 3
3 little bugs without a single clue.....
2 little bugs soaking up the hot sun....
1 little bug knew that he was done.....
Now there is none.
Have the children help you with counting and
figuring out how many bugs are left.
After the felt story talk about how geckos have
special toes that make it easy for them to
climb up trees and if we let out our gecko it
could even crawl along the ceiling. Their toes
are kind of like suction cups and they put just
the right amount of pressure on the walls so
that they can climb them without falling off.
Have the gecko over by the block area and
show the children how he has a tail. Show a
picture of a gecko without his tail. Bring back
out the felt gecko and explain what a predator
is. Have a felt predator come after the gecko
and have the geckos tail fall off and wag it
around. Have the children wiggle with the tail
and show the gecko getting away. Explain how
geckos can shed their tails to get away from
predators.
Turn off the lights in the classroom and have
the teachers have flashlights so that it isnt
too dark for the children to see. Tell the
children that geckos are nocturnal meaning

-Felt gecko (IWP)


-Felt Predator (IWP)
Real gecko

-Gecko Song (IWP)

Transition to
Self-Selected

they are awake at night. Now tell the children


that we are going to act like geckos. Turn on
the gecko songwhen the lights are off the
children can dance and sing with the gecko
song. When we turn the lights on then I will
turn the song off and we will pretend that we
are asleep.
Have the children walk on all fours like geckos
into self-selected.

Activity Description: The children will finger


paint using their specialized fingers.
*This relates to my ITBE #1 Geckos have
specialized toepads to climb up things.
Child Objective: Children will work on their
fine motor skills as they paint pictures with
their fingers.
Intentional Teaching: The teacher should
talk about the geckos specialized toe pads and
how they use those to climb up walls and trees
and things. We are using our finger pads to
paint pictures. Ask the children what the paint
feels like in their fingers.

Activity Description: Embedded into my


manipulative self-selected activity.
Activity Description: Children can make
reptiles or other creations using playdough.
There will be pictures of reptiles on the table
for the children to copy off of if they want.
There will also be letter playdough toys in the
letters of gecko.
*This relates to my ITBE that geckos can walk
along smooth surfaces like our manipulative
table.
Child Objective: Children will work on their
fine motor skills while manipulating the
playdough. Children will also demonstrate their
knowledge of the sounds of the letters in
gecko.
(Domain 5, Goal 61) Uses letters to
represent sounds in words.
Intentional Teaching: Talk to the children
about the geckos climbing and walking along

the smooth surfaces. Ask the children if they


know any other animals that can climb up
surfaces or any superheroes that can climb up
surfaces (for Hyrum) Go over the letters with
the children and the sounds that the letters
make.
Activity Description: Children can use the
wooden peg boards to sort colors, make
shapes or designs, or create things with the
pegs.
Child Objective: The children will work on
their fine motor skills of putting the pegs in the
holes on the peg board.
Intentional Teaching: Use meaningful math
talk at this center. Ask the children how many
pegs they have on their boards, if they sorted
them ask them why they have sorted them
that way or what they are creating, if I took off
so many pegs how many do you still have. Use
the last one with older children and you can
also do that with addition. If you are asking a
younger child about how many pegs they have
on their board they may need help counting.
Activity Description: Children can examine a
geckos environment at night. Put sand on the
table and rocks and have the children examine
with magnifying glasses and flashlights.
*This relates to my ITBE #3 that geckos are
nocturnal meaning they are only awake at
night.
Child Objective: The children will use the
tools provided to explore one type of an
environment that geckos can be found in.
Intentional Teaching: Ask the children what
kind of place they like to live in. Talk to the
children about how geckos like to live in
deserts, rainforests, and even icy mountains.
Activity Description: In the sensory table
there will be water beads and eggs. Inside the
eggs will be submersible lights and the little
gecko toys.
*This teaches my ITBE that geckos are
nocturnal meaning they are awake at night.
Child Objective: Children will work on their
fine motor skills as they open the eggs and
scoop and pour using the eggs.
(Domain 2, Goal 18) Pours and dumps
water, sand, and other materials using
containers or a
simple tool.
Intentional Teaching: Talk to the children
about how geckos are nocturnal and they like
to be awake at night. Explain more explicitly to
younger children what the word nocturnal
means if they are not understanding. Ask the

children what the water marbles feel like.


Activity Description: Children will play freely
in the block area using the classroom blocks.
Child Objective: Children will use their gross
motor skills to build structures. Older children
will use their cognitive skills and tell what they
are making before they make it.
Intentional Teaching: Ask the children what
they want to build before they have started
building. Work on cause and effect with the
children; if I put a cylinder shaped block at the
top of this tower what will happen?
Activity Description: The dramatic play area
will be set up like where geckos would live with
blue cloths as water. The loft will be set up with
brown cloths like a desert. The children will
work and play together to include
everyone in the dramatic play. (Domain 3,
Goal 28)
Child Objective: The children will explore the
two different environments and how geckos
like to live in both of the environments.
Intentional Teaching: Describe to the
children that geckos like to live in both of these
environments but once they are born in one
they dont want to switch. Ask the students
where they would rather live. Ask them why
they chose that environment. Explain to the
younger children what the two environments
are.

Gecko up Close

CLOSING CIRCLE

Jackson
Description & Objective
Description: We are going to split up the time.
Each group will do the same activity but at
different times. The children will get to read their
story, see and hold the gecko up close, and explore
around the Clarke to see the different types of
geckos.
Group 1: Story, walk around, holding the gecko
Group 2: Walk around, holding the gecko, story
Group 3: Holding the gecko, story, walk around
Group 4: Story, Holding the gecko, walk around
Objective: Children will build knowledge using
examination by seeing different kinds of geckos
and holding the gecko up close. The pictures of the
geckos will show their special toe pads that lets
them crawl up surfaces. If a child does not want to
hold or pet the gecko, then they do not have to.
(D1G13 Build knowledge using comparison,
contrasts, examination and evaluation.)
Intentional Teaching: When you are walking
around and looking at the different pictures of the
geckos point out if the picture is taken at night and
talk about how they are nocturnal, when you get to
the picture of the toe pads talk about how they can
walk up surfaces, when you get to the picture of a
gecko without a tail talk about how they can get rid
of their tail to avoid predators.
