SEQUENCE OF LESSON

Introduction- Students will enter the gymnasium in a single file line
and sit with their squads. Mr. McKenna will introduce himself to the
class, and inform them they will be practicing their shooting in class
today. Mr. McKenna will take attendance of the class, and make
sure all participating students are wearing sneakers. Mr. McKenna
will then ask a volunteer to read the responsive question that is
written on the board. The question will read Welcome Students,
What do you think BEEF means in regards to shooting a basketball.
The students will be allowed 2 minutes to discuss with their
squads, and after will give their answers and share with the rest of
the class.

Safety- Mr. McKenna will talk about his safety expectations with the
students. The students will act respectful towards each other and
the equipment. The students will act responsible when given a
basketball. Students will stay within the boundaries.

Activity 1- Lay-ups
The students will warm up with a layup activity that will get their
whole bodies moving before they go into their final basketball mini
game. The students will be broken up to the 5 hoops based upon
the corresponding 5 squads. There will be two pieces of tape at
every hoop, marked slightly in front of the elbow. These pieces of
tape will be used in the lay-up drill, watermelon and basketball golf.
Once the students are at their respective group, they will split up
evenly on the two pieces of tape. The students will then put
together the skills taught in the first two lessons together with
shooting. The students will dribble in from the tape, and shoot a set
two footed lay-up. The rebounder will come from the other line, will
pick up the ball after the shot attempt and will either chest pass or
bounce pass the ball back to the shooting line. After every shot the
shooter and rebounder switch lines and the drill continues. After 4
minutes of the right side, Mr. McKenna will switch the ball from the
right side to the left side.
Demonstration- Mr. McKenna will give a demonstration of what the
dribble and the lay-up shot will look like
Demonstration- Mr. McKenna will select a squad that volunteers to

This activity carried over well from their last lesson.


The students did a good job of cumulatively putting
together passing dribbling and shooting. If I could
teach this lesson again, I would have made this
section a little bit less time so the students had more
time for the actual shooting game. One thing that I
was impressed with was the students abilities to
practice their BEEF. Specifically I was impressed
with the students working to shot with primarily one
hand rather than two.

HOOP
Mr. McKenna will remind the students to shoot a one handed shot,
using the offhand as a guide. Mr. McKenna will stress to the
students to bend and extend so that they can get the ball up and
over the rim giving it a higher chance to be a successful shot.

10-22 Activity 2 (4th grade only)- Basketball Golf


-

The 4th graders enjoyed their activity basketball golf.


They were very confused at first as to how the two
sports could be combined into one, but using a
demonstration was very helpful to clear the students
questions and set them on the right track. I like this
activity a lot and will carry it forward with me in the
future because it really works on the students
shooting. They shoot from 18 different locations on
5 different hoops. It challenges them accordingly,
while it keeps them moving and rotating at the same
time.

th

The 4 grade students will play a mini game called


basketball golf. There will be 20 holes on the golf course, 4
at each hoop. The holes are marked by the two pieces of
tape at each hoop from the lay-ups, and two cones that are
placed at each hoop. The students will work with their
entire squad each shooting 3 times at the 4 spots at their
hoop. Once all the students have shot at each spot at a
hoop, Mr. McKenna will rotate the students clockwise to the
next hoop where the holes will have different locations.

Demonstration- Mr. McKenna will use squad 1 as a demonstration


at hoop 1. The 4 students will each stand at one of the four spots.
After each student takes 3 attempts at a spot they will rotate
clockwise still at their hoop. Once they have all made it around, Mr.
McKenna will inform the class that that is when he will rotate the
entire class to a new hoop.
Saftey- Mr. McKenna will instruct the students to be aware of other
gold holes basketball coming into their area. Mr. McKenna will also
instruct that only one student rebounds for the shooter each time in
order to avoid a collision going for the ball.
Teacher Positioning- As the students are practicing, Mr. McKenna
will be moving around from hoop to hoop, giving feedback about the
students with regards to BEEF. Mr. McKenna will instruct any
students that is not comfortable shooting form the hole may take a
few dribbles in and shoot from their own comfort zone.
23-36 Activity 2 (5th grade only)- Watermelon

HOOP

HOLE 3

The 5th grade classes will play a shooting game called watermelon
(king of the hill). The students teams will be their squads, and the
students will still be using the pieces of taper at each hoop as the
location of their shooting. However Now the individual lines at each
hoop are a team, there is not more switching teams between
squads. The objective of this game is to get to the money basket by
winning at the side hoops, then stay at the money basket by
continually winning. Only wins at the money hoop will count, and to
advance up to the money hoop from the side hoops you must win.
If you lose at a side hoop, you stay at that hoop and await the next
team that will be rotating in. The students will rotate clockwise, and
Mr. McKenna will inform the students to show patience when waiting
for games ahead of them to finish. The students will play to 3 at
each hoop, so the first team to make three shots (not consecutive)
will advance. If students are not comfortable shooting from the
tape, they can move in to where they feel they have a better
opportunity of being successful.
Demonstration- Mr. McKenna will pick squad 5 to demonstrate the
game Watermelon. The students will start on their separate teams
on the two pieces of tape, and will play against each other to three.
Once a team makes 3, Mr. McKenna will check for understanding
with the rest of the class
T- Which team will rotate to the next hoop
S- The team on the right because they got to three first

The 5th graders got to play a very competitive game,


and the results were varied between classes. One
improvement I would make would be to make the
teams by skill, not by squads. However, at the same
time watermelon provided the students with multiple
game like situations in which they could practice
their shooting. I could have demonstrated better,
because at some hoops you would rotate on a win
and others on a loss, but after two rounds almost all
students knew what was expected of them.

T- If this was a money hoop who would get a point and who would
rotate?
S- The winning team gets the point, and the loosing team rotates
because it is at the money hoop.
Safety- Mr. McKenna will instruct the students about how to act if
their ball bounces into another watermelon game. Either the team
will walk after it, or the ongoing watermelon game will postpone and
the students will pass the ball appropriately/compassionately back
to the other team.
37-40 Closure- Mr. McKenna will inform the class how they did in regards
to following the rules and directions for the day. Mr. McKenna will
give out two way to gos to two students in each class and will
inform the students about the plans for next class (nutrition).

I was impressed with my students abilities to identify


BEEF, and to be able to demonstrate it. Also, the
process of bend and extend was beneficial to many
students as they struggled to get the basketball up and
over

T- What was a strategy that worked well for you?


S- Hustling after the rebound so that my next teammate could get to
shoot as quickly as possible
S- Using BEEF, and shooting accurate shots by using a 1 handed
jumper
T- What do the letters in BEEF stand for
S- Balance, Eyes, Elbow, Follow through
T- If you are struggling to get the ball up and over the rim, what
should you focus on during your shot?
S- Bend and extend in one motion to get more upward force on the
ball.
