## Lesson Plans

I used these two powerpoints (Alphabet small and big letter matching game and Alphabet phonics matching game) to practice recognition of upper and lower case letters and to test the students’ abilities to recognize the sounds that the letters make.

PPT

This powerpoint was used to help introduce the sentence pattern for the chapter. You can use the powerpoint to have the whole class practice, have the students practice, individually or in pairs. The power points can be followed up with actives to practice sentences such as: sentence unscrambles, worksheets, partner practices, etc.

Game

This is a game to review sentence patterns and vocabulary at the end of each lesson. Each slide presents a question or sentence prompt that the student is supposed to fill in. The game can be adapted to fit your needs, but here is how the game worked in my class:

The class is split into 2 or 3 different teams. Each team is given a stuffed animal, ball, or object they can pass around. I will play music, and when the music stops, the student on each team holding the stuffed animal must raise their hand. The first student to raise their hand gets to answer the question first. If answered correctly, the student gets to pick one of the 4 boxes on the bottom of the screen. Once chosen, the teacher will click the box and a point value will appear (it may be negative points). After the first student has chosen, the second student still gets to answer the question and choose a box with a point value (and then the third if you have 3 teams). The first student then gets to pick one more box of points because they were first. The objective is that all students get to practice and some of the points are left up to chance, so students get to contribute to their team even if they do not win.

Animals:

Equipment: dice, playing pieces (can easily be students’ erasers), copies of game board

1. Divide the class into teams with four players on each team. Play rock, paper, scissors to determine who in each group goes first.

2. Students take turns rolling die to move spaces around the board and reading the Q&A prompts according to the number next to their space.

3. No two students can occupy the same space on the board. The first person on the space gets bumped back to their start position if someone lands on them!
