Making of Lesson Plan Lesson Plan: Identify shapes Subject: Math Date: 10 November Level: LKG Objective: Students will be able to identify circles, squares, triangles, and rectangles. Topic: Shapes Structure: Classroom Time: 30 minutes Vocab: English Materials required: Life-size cardboard cut-out of 2D shapes (circle, square, triangle, rectangle, oval) Computer and projector/screen Musical video on shapes Speakers Class set of Shape Jumble Shape Jumble worksheets Crayons Lesson Activities: Teachers Activities: Student Activities: Introduction Watch music video & interactive 4 min Q&A Interactive classwork with objects 8 min Presentation Time: Independent working Point to the right object and Colouring activity on sheets 8 min Assessment Speed up in guided practice 8 min Review and closing Revision of concepts and song 5 min Warmer: Teacher & assistant walk in wearing large cardboard cut-outs of shapes around their bodies. Introduction: Gather the students where they can watch the music videos. Watch Shapes Song on screen. After watching the videos, ask the students which shapes they noticed. Tell students that today they will be learning about shapes and do some fun colouring. Display a variety of real-world objects that show different kinds of shapes. Name the shapes and have students repeat the shape names back to you. Presentation: Tell your students to sit in a circle. Place a blue square, yellow circle, orange rectangle, green oval and red triangle in the circle. Tell your students that you will describe a shape and they are to guess which one it is. Proceed with the following prompts: something yellow with no sides, something red with three sides, something blue with four corners, something green with no sides and something orange with four sides. Tell students that square, rectangles, and triangles all have corners. Have them create two straight lines with their arms and join their fingers tips to create a corner while repeating, "Corner." Model making a circle with your hand and showing students that circles have no sides or corners. Ask students to think about how a circle is different from a square, and how a square is different from a triangle. Differentiated Plan: Enrichment – Advanced students may create a picture using shapes. Support - Struggling students may use a shape chart as they play the game and complete their work. Some students may benefit from playing with the shapes again in a small group. Independent Working: Have the students remain in a circle. Hand out the Shape Jumble worksheet. Read the instructions and model how to colour one or two of the shapes. Ask your students to raise their hands if they understand what they will be doing. Dismiss them to work independently. Evaluation: During independent practice, the students should follow directions and colour shapes accurately. Assess student understanding of shapes by noting which students are unable to identify the shapes or struggling to complete the worksheet. Ask guiding questions such as "Which shape has four equal sides? Which shape has three sides? How do you know?" Closure: Play one of the songs again on the interactive whiteboard. Ask the students to think about the different shapes. Invite the students to describe the shapes by their lines and corners. Invite the students to think of other things they could do with shapes. Ask your students to volunteer what they will tell their parents about the lesson. Compliment your students on their hard work!
