# Lesson  Plan  Framework

Teacher:  Sample  Teacher   Grade  Level:  Kindergarten   Course  Unit:  Geometry   Lesson  Title:    Gingerbread  Building   Focus  Question/Big  Idea/Learning  Goals:    What  do  you
want  students  to  be  able  to  know  as  a  result  of  this  lesson?     What  questions  or  big  ideas  drive  the  instruction?

Length  of  Lesson:  45  minutes  –  1  hour   Learning  Objectives:    What  do  you  want  students  to  be  able
to  do  as  a  result  of  this  lesson?    Include  academic  language  and   vocabulary  objectives  too.    Objectives  must  be  measureable.

Shapes  can  be  used  to  construct  objects  in  the  world.

Construct  an  object  (gingerbread  house)  with  basic  shapes,   graph  the  shapes  used,  and  write  about  the  shapes.

STANDARDS:  Reference  State  (Social  Studies  and  Science)  Common  Core  (Math  and  ELA  only)     K.G.05  Model  shapes  in  the  world  by  building  shapes  from  components  and  drawing  shapes.   K.W.08  With guidance and support from adults, recall information from experiences or gather information from provided sources to answer a question.
Academic  Language  (discipline  specific)  –  list  terms     build/construct   interpret   precise     square   triangle   rectangle   circle     Academic  Vocabulary  (lesson  specific)

Pre-­‐Assessment:    How
will  you  determine  prior   knowledge?

Hook:    How  will  you  catch  the
attention  of  your  students  and   focus  their  minds  on  today’s   learning  goals?

Real  World  Connection:

Student  Reflection:

How  are  learning  goals  relevant  to   How  will  you  provide  for   students’  lives?   student  reflection?

-­‐  We  will  use  snack  mats   for  the  entire  week  to   build  larger  shapes  with   the  shapes  from  snack   foods.   -­‐  The  Activote  quiz  to   open  the  lesson  and   inform  me  of  progress   from  prior  lessons.

I  will  open  the  lesson  with  an   Activote  quiz,  a  favorite  activity   of  the  students  and  a  way  for   me  to  see  if  they  have  been   able  to  retain  the  information   we  will  build  on  during  this   lesson.

We  will  look  at  real  houses  to   see  what  shapes  we  see  in  the   houses  before  we  build   gingerbread  houses.

Students  will  write   what  shapes  they  used   to  construct  their   gingerbread  houses   and  will  share  that   information  with  their   elbow  partners.    I  will   be  orally  assessing  by   asking  more  about   their  constructions  and   interpretations.
