Lesson Title: Enrichment Lesson Plan Submitted By: Courtney Donnelly CCSS: W.1.2 - Write informative/explanatory texts in which they name a topic, supply some facts

about the topic, and provide some sense of closure. 1. First I will go over what informative/explanatory is again as a refresher for the students. 2. Second Ill give them all an Apple worksheet that we all will work on together. 3. Third it will be the second day; we will go over the worksheet that we worked on the day before about Apples. 4. The students will share what they have written, and I will correct if needed. 5. I will then give them the Carrot worksheet where they will do the same as they did on the apply worksheet. 6. Once they finish that worksheet after 7 minutes or so, they will tell me what sentences they have written again. 7. On the third day I will have them come up with their own object that they want to write informative sentences about. 8. They will again fill out a brainstorm sheet about the object, write about it, and then share it with me and the other students in the group.

F. Assessment (answer all questions) How will you know they got it? Ill know they got it after listening to that sentences they have written about each object. Ill see if they have explained the object and gave enough information about it that is important and easy to understand. Is there an assessment rubric? There isnt a set rubric since it is just going to be an enrichment plan to what is already being taught. Its more of an auditory rubric to me. How does the assessment measure student mastery of the lesson objectives? Ill know if they are getting the idea of informative/explanatory sentences by how they are describing the apple and carrots but also the object they have picked themselves. With them being able to pick their own object and describing lets me know that their writing skills are getting stronger.

G. Reflection (answer all questions) Which part of the lesson do you think will be the easiest to teach? I think the easiest part of the lesson is getting them to understand what types of sentences I want them to write by working together on the first worksheet. They will see how we are describing the apple, and whats important to talk about when it comes to the apple.

about the topic, and provide some sense of closure. Which part of the lesson do you think will be the most challenging to teach? I think the most challenging part is getting them to pick their own object. I feel like they are going to want to stay in the idea of fruits and vegetables when I want them to venture out into other ideas like animals, food, or cars. What lesson or concept should be taught prior to this lesson? I need to teach the idea of adjectives, informative/explanatory sentences, and webs for brainstorming. How will you follow up this lesson? Ill follow up this lesson with more objects for the students to explain. As we get farther in the year it will be easier for the kids to describe and explain what an object looks like, does, or is used for. Which part of the lesson, if any, do you think might need to change? I might need to change how long it will take the students to this. If they catch on to the plan quicker then I might only need to use two days instead of three. I also need to think about using different examples so that the students can see different kinds of objects to describe. When you were writing this lesson plan, what was the most difficult part? The most difficult part was thinking of a lesson to actually do. I knew I needed something small for above average first graders. Thanks to wiki-teacher, I used a PowerPoint from cboyed that gave me slides. From those slides I came up with a lesson to do with them. I love that when I actually become a teacher there are so many things out there that will help me succeed and become a better teacher. http://www.wikiteacher.com/resourceView.php?id=2534
