EQUIPMENT: 4 Boundary Cones, 5 Red Poly Spots, 5 Blue Poly Spots, 4 Orange Poly Spots, 4 Green
Poly Spots, 4 Purple Poly Spots, 1 Laptop, 1 Projector and 1 USB Cord
FOCUS OF LESSON: Demonstrate The Sid Shuffle Dance
STUDENT PERFORMANCE OBJECTIVES (SPO); MA CF + NASPE Standard(s); Task #s where
content is taught; Task # where objective is assessed:
By the end of the lesson, students should be able to:
(P) Perform rhythmically at least 7 out of the 9 steps to The Sid Shuffle dance by mimicking the
teachers physical demonstrations of these motions when carrying out this routine. (SHAPE (S1.E5.2);
MA CF 2.3) (Taught: Activity #1, #2, #3, & #4; Assessed: Entire Lesson)
(C) Identify at least 5 out of the 9 steps to The Sid Shuffle dance by accurately answering a series of
informal questions posed by the teacher throughout the course of the class period. (SHAPE (S2.E1.2);
MA CF 2.2) (Taught: Activity #1, #2, #3, & #4; Assessed: Entire Lesson)
(A) Follow the class rules without getting a warning during the entire class period. (SHAPE (S4.E5.2);
MA CF 2.7) (Taught: Introduction; Assessed: Entire Lesson)
Check each objective: Is it specific? Is it achievable? Is it developmentally appropriate?
TEACHER PERFORMANCE OBJECTIVES - During the lesson the teacher will:
1. Teach the students the proper steps needed for The Sid Shuffle dance in the correct manner by
demonstrating to them when they need to be implemented in order to successfully complete this routine
by the end of the class period.
2. Interact effectively through instruction and feedback so that a positive learning environment is
maintained.
SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS - What are the safety concerns? What is unique about the students
in this class?
Students need to be sure to stay in their own personal space when carrying out routine. Proper attire for
physical activity (no jewelry, wearing sneakers) will be enforced at the beginning of class. If students get
tired during the class period that the teacher needs to remind them to move outside of the boundaries so
they dont get injured. The students will also be made aware of any hazardous equipment for which the
facility presents. Lastly, all students will be required to adhere to the stop/go signals for which will be
presented at the start of the lesson.

The teacher will provide each student with their


seating arrangement for the class period, which will
be denoted by a color (red, blue, orange, green, and
purple). This pigment will indicate the column of poly
spots in which they will be mandated to stay at
throughout the whole class period, where they must
silently stand on this designated platform to wait for
the next series of instructions regarding the first
(Warm-up) activity of the lesson. This duty will be
performed by the teacher reading off each students
name off of the class roster one by one.

REFLECTIONS
Teacher Emotion:
- My presentation of content
to students needs to be more
enthusiastic so that these
individuals can, in turn,
become engaged in this
material to a greater degree
through their active
participation in it. I learned it
is extremely important that
my dialogue to students
contains a high level of
excitement considering it sets
the tone for how students
view the content which is
being introduced to them.
That is why I think this
absence of energy within the
instruction I provided resulted
with my learners displaying
subpar effort during the
activities that were planned
for them to partake in in the
course of this lesson based on
the fact that I did not present
them in a manner which
captured these individuals

Meeting Place: The meeting place will be established


with five columns rows of five poly spots placed in a
rectangular formation that is right in front of where
the teacher will stand to provide the students with
more a face-to-face interaction so that they can
process and retain the information that is being
expressed to them.
Boundaries: The teacher will show and tell the
students that they cannot go past the boundary lines,
which will be set up by cones. The teacher also will
tell the students that during the activities they must
keep their head up at all times. These two guidelines
are extremely important to incorporate in your lesson
because they ensure the students safety. For example,
the cones are set up so that the student stays away
from the wall or any other dangerous equipment;
while making sure that the students keeps their head
up is so that they dont run into anything.
Signals: The teacher will tell the students that they are
only allowed to move when they say, 123 go, and
must refrain from moving when they say, 321

Student Behavior Expectations: The teacher will
explain to the students that there is no talking during
instruction as well as no horseplay throughout the
lesson. The teacher will also state that each student
will be given two warnings if they are an offender of
these rules. However, on their third offense they will
be ordered to sit and watch the lesson from outside the

The teacher will communicate to the students that the
purpose behind learning about how to establish
rhythm when dancing is because it is used in our
everyday lives. For instance, they will highlight that
dancing is a common feature at parties, events, in
addition to other organized outings. It will also be
explained to the class that dancing can be used as a
form of communication to express ones thoughts,
values, and beliefs, where people of many different
races and ethnicities in all countries throughout the
world use it explicitly for this manner.
The teacher will then ask the students to state any
examples from their own lives for when they have
taken part in dance outside of the classroom.
The teacher will then inform the students that The
Sid Shuffle dance is a fun and easy routine that
requires its performers to exhibit a great deal of
rhythm to correctly execute, but will be urged to be
silly with it when practicing it throughout the class
period.

Teacher Wait Time:


- When the majority of
students were exhibiting offtask behavior in this lesson I
effectively was able to utilize
my teacher wait time to get
them to refrain from talking
with one another so that they
would then regain their
concentration on my
instruction. I detected that this
instructional strategy was
highly sufficient when
conveying content to students
because it expressed to them
that they were not going to be
taught any new material until
they silently placed their
undivided attention on me.
With that being said, there
were several instances
throughout this lesson where I
had to resort to this technique
in light of how my learners
were displaying boisterous
behavior as I was trying to
introduce them with new
subject matter, where on each
occasion this tactic worked to
suppress the conversations in
which were taking place

strategies. It should be mentioned that the teacher will
first complete this series of actions by themselves to
show the class what they look like; however, each of
the succeeding demonstrations will be executed along
with the students at the lead of this instructor. These
motions will continuously be demonstrated by the
students until the teacher feels as though they have
adequately mastered them.
Skill Cues (for steps):
Step forward (with left foot) and wiggle fists
(clench hands in fists and shake them next to
head).
Step back (with left foot) and wiggle fists
(clench hands into fists and shake them next
to head).
Checking for Understanding:
1.) What are the first two steps of The Sid Shuffle
dance? (They are taking a step forward while
wiggling fists directly next to head after this
stride has been completed, then executing the
exact same sequence of motions except taking
a step backward with same foot for the
succeeding dance move.)
Activity #1: The students will perform the first two
steps of The Sid Shuffle dance with the teacher
leading this routine a total of five times without the
music. After this practice, the teacher will then tell the
students to perform the same segment of the routine
both with and without their guidance for an additional
five times using the music. While the students are
taking part in this duty by themselves, the teacher will
provide them with feedback that specifically targets
the key aspects of their performance.

some of these individuals
seemed as though they were
slightly confused when given
a particular duty to perform.
There were several instances
when I did not receive a
response from my students
after I had asked them to
execute a distinct task, which
forced me to reiterate what I
presented to them in a fashion
that they could more easily
understand. This repetition of
directions had a negative
effect on the overall
smoothness of this lesson

the next motion except just stepping to the
right.)
Activity #2: The students will perform the second
series of two steps for The Sid Shuffle dance with
the teacher leading this routine a total of five times
without the music. After this practice, the teacher will
then tell the students to perform this routine from the
beginning all the way to this segment both with and

lot of success executing this routine will be asked to
attempt performing it solo in front of the class as a
demonstration for their peers.
Extension Down: Any students who are experiencing
great struggle with executing this routine will be
asked to attempt performing it with a partner who is
proficient in carrying out this dance so that they can
watch this individual when they are completing it in
an effort to try to emulate their implementation of its
steps.

in relation to specifically
highlighting key components
of their performance in a
positive manner with which
they were doing a good job of
carrying out. I discovered that
this practice was extremely
helpful for motivating the
students to put in maximum
effort into their execution of
the activities within this
lesson through the praise for
which I fused in these
instructional statements.
Additionally, one observation
that I made from using these
comments of admiration when
pinpointing certain learners
performance to the entire
class is that they prompted
their peers to work harder at
refining their own
undertakings of the same task
in order to also have their
achievements get noticed by
me. It is greatly important that
I continue to walk around the
sides of the teaching space to
scan the students with my
back to wall when they are

beginning all the way to this segment both with and


without their guidance for five additional times using
the music. While the students are taking part in this
duty by themselves, the teacher will provide them
with feedback that specifically targets the key aspects
of their performance.
Extension Up: Any students who are experiencing a
lot of success executing this routine will be asked to
attempt performing it with their eyes closed.
Extension Down: Any students who are experiencing
great struggle with executing this routine will be
asked to attempt performing alongside the teacher so
that they can watch them carrying out the dance in an
effort to try to emulate their implementation of its
steps.
