Ccassroom Lesson Plans

Halloween Activities, Using Classroom Technology & Multiple Intelligences For Classroom Lesson Plans
Shh...When I was a classroom teacher my holiday parties strongly resembled "center activities" where students moved from one activity to the next. Holiday activities can still meet content and technology standards yet be disguised as holiday activities. Keeping the multiple intelligences in mind, we can have students engaged in activities that meet those intelligences while celebrating the "second most popular holiday" Halloween. We can focus on internet research and information gathering while learning about the history of Halloween. Using interpersonal intelligence the children can write group stories. Share with the class.
Where are all the Halloween carols? The musical intelligence within us will inspire Halloween carols.
I have done many of these activities in the computer lab; especially the history lesson, the map drawing (using KidPix), and the epitaph creation (using KidPix). Hopefully some of these activities will help you continue to make kids think and expand their minds while also celebrating the holiday season.
It is generally advised that student and beginning teachers put a great amount of detail into the written plan. School room lesson plans make sure that teaching will be practically cohesive and that all the components of successful teaching are taken care of. Beginning instructors find lesson plans helpful for scripting questions that might get a discussion going at the starting of the lesson. Thorough classroom lesson plans are encouraged for grades k-6th especially in the subjects of social studies, math and science. Goals
This section can also express lesson goals that draw upon prior plans and actions, setting the stage and preparing students for upcoming activities and further knowledge acquisition. Objectives
This section focuses on what your students will do to acquire further knowledge and skills. The objectives for the daily lesson plan are drawn from the broader aims of the unit plan are achieved over a well-defined time period.The topics of math, social studies and science in levels of k-6th need to have clear goals.
It presents a general summary of the lesson in terms of topic emphasis, activities and purpose.
Lesson Procedure
This part will supply a detailed step-by-step explanation of how to duplicate the lesson and accomplish lesson plan objectives. Here is where you will include your introduction, main activity, closure, follow-up lessons.
Here's a tip for engaging the students of your diverse classroom MORE.
Once you've assessed the ability level and prior knowledge of your students, and distributed questionnaires on reading styles and interests, expectations, and learning styles, then figure out how you can best embrace these areas in your lesson plan. Also, if you use an overly challenging or limited textbook, think how you can adapt the activities The teacher adapts the task to two or three different levels, thereby enabling the student to choose the level that s/he can function with. I call this type of adaptation, "Same activity-different tasks." I teach an advanced writing ESL class at a nearby university, so I entered, "advanced writing activities, ESL university classes" and all sorts of results popped up. Next, look at the activities on your lesson plan. Once you do find a few activities that intersect with the skill of reading, use again an open ended approach to differentiate your reading instruction. You can build reading groups and extensive reading programs. For example, you can use a reading selection to cater to those groups of learners who can cope independently while you gather the other group to read together using an adaptation of the story/text. Students learn to grow more responsible for and response to their learning. For example, students can:
* Draw a series of pictures illustrating the story or main events of the story.
* Draw a map showing there the story takes place.
Plan to experiment with 1 new semi-extensive or extensive reading activity. After you've gotten to know how your class as they interact with the lesson plan you've prepared for them, evaluate your lesson plan and adjust those areas of instruction that need readjustment.
