Thursday, March 26 Lesson Plans

Calendar Math: Talk about the calendar, seasons, and weather. Body Spell the date.

Lesson 3-9: Problem Solving Strategy: Follow Directions/Act It Out

Objective: I can us the ACT IT OUT strategy to follow directions and solve problems that include position words.

Background: The ACT IT OUT strategy encourages children to use manipulatives, drawings, and movement to determine position. It is particularly helpful with left and right, the words that are most difficult for children to grasp. As you review position words, it will also be helpful to face in the same direction as the children.

Materials: Instructional Practice p. 95 and p. 96; Additional Practice p. 41, toy cars (red, yellow, and blue); a sheet of paper; crayons.

1. Play a quick game of Simon Says with your child, using as many position words as possible when giving directions.

2. Provide your child with the toy cars: red, yellow, and blue (or three of any toy); a sheet of paper, and crayons. Have your child draw a house on the sheet of paper. Before you begin, instruct them to “LISTEN CAREFULLY as I give directions.” Give positional instructions: “Put the (red) car to the right of the house” and “Put the (blue) car to the left of the house” etc.

3. Problem Solving Strategy: Follow Directions/Act It Out p. 95-96

– Ask your child to identify the animals at the top of page 95

– “The animals need to go into the barn before it rains. Which animal will go into the barn last?” (chicken)

“The rain has stopped. Now the dogs are looking for the bone. Where is the bone?” (under the straw). Then read the directions on p. 95-96 read them one at a time.

4. Problem-Solving Strategy: Follow Directions/Act It Out p. 41

5. IXL N.4 Locations in a grid

In RELIGION we will be learning about Lent and how it is a time for preparing ourselves for the joy and new life, grace, of Easter. We will also be discussing the meaning of Ash Wednesday, and choosing a prayer, fasting (giving up), and Giving (taking up). As well as The Stations of the Cross, which help us remember all that Jesus suffered because He loves us.

In SOCIAL STUDIES we will be learning about Black History Month, Dental Health Month, Groundhog Day, Superbowl, Saint Valentine’s Day, President’s Day, Mardi Gras, and Leap Year.

In SCIENCE we will be learning about weather and seasons.

God bless,

Mrs. Covington
