Composing and Decomposing a Number
In this lesson, students will learn how to compose a number with base 10 blocks, decompose a ten, and then compose the same number a different way.
Flying High with Inferences
In this lesson, students integrate background knowledge and textual clues to respond to inferential questions that were generated by the students themselves. The lesson utilizes instructional strategies that have been identified as best practice for teaching inference such as: generating questions, identifying keywords, and activating prior knowledge. Additionally, the lesson is designed to support English learners and utilizes visuals, graphic organizers, sentence frames, and cooperative learning.
Students will read a group of words, arrange them to make sense as a complete thought, and recognize and use capitalization at the beginning and a period as the ending punctuation mark.
Journalists Research, Too!
Students will research information in order to create a newspaper article about the topic.
Locating Facts and Details in Text Features
First-grade students will rotate through engaging learning stations and read portions of expository texts to identify facts and details embedded within text features.
Students locate sensory details and create their own sensory detail poem.
Math Problem Solving CAN DRIVE good problem solvers!: 1st grade CAN Drive
Students will help the principal collect cans for a can food drive. The students will be able to solve math word problems using the UPS✓ (UNDERSTAND what the problem is asking, make a PLAN, SOLVE the problem, and then CHECK to see if the answer makes sense) song/strategy, draw to show their work, and write a number sentence to go with their problem.
Building Stamina During Stations
Students will participate in differentiated stations based on counting coins, comparing values, and purchasing items within various wants and needs. Students will self-assess their stamina development throughout the lesson.
Decomposing Number Exploration
Students will decompose a number up to 20 using manipulatives and graphic organizers.
Author’s Purpose in a Bag
Students will infer from text evidence the author’s purpose and explain their thinking.
Understanding Mathematical Word Problems
The student is expected to represent word problems involving addition and subtraction of whole numbers up to 20 using concrete and pictorial models and number sentences.
Students will understand the different representations of graphical data, through reading, listening, and comprehension of a word problem so they can devise a problem solving plan that addresses the entire problem.
Planning a Draft
Students will employ critical thinking skills to order details logically and become more effective at communicating their ideas to readers. The lesson will guide students toward using critical thinking in the planning phase of drafting to purposefully include details that interest readers.
Pack Your Bags!
Students learn to determine the difference between topic, central idea, and details using mystery bags, graphic organizers, and short passages.
Understanding Text Features
This lesson guides students to use sentence stems to clarify their thinking as they identify and locate text features in isolation while using an interactive text features wall. Students will then transition to gaining information from text features as they search for text features in their books and share the information gained with their partners.
Students will use mystery bags and graphic organizers to identify clues and use their schema to make an inference. Students conclude this lesson by connecting text as evidence and playing a context clue game with cucumber sentences.
One Thing Leads to Another
Students apply their understanding of the text in order to retell the plot sequence.
Understanding the Equal Sign and Balancing Equations
Students will apply addition strategies as they complete four different station rotations to help understand that the equal sign represents a relationship where the expressions on each side of the equal sign represents the same value.
Adventures in Inferring
Students will infer the message the author is trying to convey using schema and evidence from the text. Readers use this strategy, known as making inferences, to think about what they are reading.
Students progress from a surface-level understanding of text to a deeper understanding by processing and expressing details and examples to support their understanding of observations through background knowledge and textual evidence.
