STUDENT ASSETS (KNOWLEDGE OF STUDENTS) Complete this section if you are in a practicum setting. If you are not in a practicum setting,

My students come from different background although many of them have the necessary knowledge about the basics of reading. They are aged between 7 and 8 years.
Cultural (Traditions, dialects, worldview, literature, arts, etc.)
Majority of my students come from monolingual English speaking family backgrounds although some of them are English Language Learners.
Community (Landmarks, community events, etc.)
My students come from diverse communities with some of them from urban areas and others urban areas.
Developmental (Cognitive, physical, social, and emotional)

LEARNING OBJECTIVE(S) These must be behavioral and measurable.
Statements of what students will know, understand, and be able to do at the end of the lesson (consider all three domains). Include condition, performance, and criterion.

the primary objective for my students is to enable them improve their reading skills and understand the simple stories. This objective aligns with Virginia common core state standards for reading.
BEGINNING: LAUNCH/HOOK/ANTICIPATORY SET How will you get the lesson started? What questions, texts, inquiry, modeling, and/or other
techniques will you use to engage students? I will start the lesson by asking the student if they have ever heard the story of “The Hair and the Tortoise.” I will them give a brief overview of what the story is about and proceed to inform them that we will be reading a similar story.
MIDDLE: INSTRUCTIONAL STRATEGIES TO FACILITATE STUDENT LEARNING For example: How will you engage students with ideas/texts to develop understanding? What
questions will you ask? How will you promote question generation/discussion? What activities will you use to engage students in learning—for individuals, small groups, or the whole class? How will you incorporate technology? How will you address the academic language demands?
Detail your plan. Note: For math lesson plans, please write or attach every task/problem students will solve during the lesson—with the correct answers.
Instruction/Modeling I will start by modelling to them how to read the story by reading it aloud, pinpointing the words as I read and then ask them to read the story alongside me.
Guided Practice After reading the story together, I will pose questions on what we have read and then ask them to retell the story in their own words.
Independent Practice For this practice, I will direct the students in reading the story again on their own and respond to the questions about it.
END: CLOSURE How will you end the lesson in a way that promotes student learning and retention?
Towards the end of the lesson, I will ask the learners to each tell me what they have learned in their own words and enquire if they loved the story or not.
EVIDENCE AND ASSESSMENT OF STUDENT LEARNING How will you know whether your students are meeting your learning objective? What tools will you use to measure their progress? How will you provide feedback to promote student
learning? Diagnostic/Pre- assessment(s) (could be prior to the lesson)
Prior to the lesson, the students will be provided with aa short quiz which will act as measurement to determine their prior knowledge of the lesson materials.

Formative Assessments/ Feedback to Learners (part of the activities in the lesson)
During the lesson, I will assign my students formative assessments through tasks and questions. I will also provide them with feedback to their questions and answers (Orlich et al., 2012)
Summative Assessment (matches the objective)
I will provide the students with short quiz towards the end of the lesson which will act as the summative assessment.
ACADEMIC LANGUAGE DEMANDS Language Demand(s) The language demands of this lesson is to ensure that the students
will be in a position to read and understand simple comprehensions.
Language Support(s) The supporting framework for this lesson will be in the form of using simple phrases and words and also using pictures and illustrations.
Essential Vocabulary The important vocabulary for the lesson comprises of different phrases and words such as “character,” “story,” “Plot,” and “setting.”
LU SOE-SPECIFIC LESSON REQUIREMENTS Character Education The aim of the lesson is to enhance cooperation and the students
will be assigned groups where they will be tasked with the role of retelling the story.
Materials The different materials that will be incorporated during this lesson include markers, whiteboard, and a class set of the different worksheets.
Technology Connection The students will be using technological whiteboard when reading the story which will act as our technology connection.
CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING QUESTION FOR THE NEXT SECTION OF THIS FORM: How will you support students to meet your goals? EXPLICITLY describe what you will do!
List planned supports (instructional strategies, learning tasks and materials, and other resources deliberately designed to facilitate student learning of the central focus).
Planned Supports The planned support for this lesson will include using pictures and demonstrations. It will also involve the use of basic words and phrases which will help the students to understand the story thoroughly such that they can retell it on their own.

SUPPORTS: DIFFERENTIATION/EXTENSION How will you provide successful access to the key concepts to all the students at their ability
levels? Exceptionalities (special needs [IEPs/504 plans], gifted and talented, accommodations, etc.)
The different forms of accommodation that will be implemented during the lesson include the use of basic words and phrases and use of pictures and demonstrations to ensure that the student understand the story and can narrate it using their own words.
ELL For this group of learners, the accommodation will involve the use of basic words and phrases and use of pictures and demonstrations. This helps the students to understand the story thoroughly such that they can retell it on their own.
Learning Styles/Student Engagement
The lesson comprises of a wide variety of engaging activities including reading the particular story aloud, retelling the story using their own words, and responding to the questions regarding the story (Orlich et al., 2012). These forms of interactive activities will play an integral role in enabling the student to engage with class materials and retell the story independently.
Extension For the students displaying the ability to thoroughly understand the materials, the extension activities will involve introducing them to more complex stories and providing responses on the questions that I will ask at the end of the lesson.
