He will require assistance sounding out and recognition of sight words.

Timin Learning Experiences:

1. Introduction:


The teacher will split the students into their reading groups.
Once seated on the mat in our group gain the students attention.
I will introduce the book that we will be reading.
Discuss the book talking about the title, getting the children to make a
prediction on what they think the book is about, discuss the different
pictures and look at the words that they identify as tricky words. The, has,
sound out shop and discuss the sh phonic sound.
Discuss key clues; use the pictures to figure out the tricky words.

Are you using the pictures to help you work out the tricky


Read the book altogether.

Ask the students to point out specific sight words.
Can you tell me what this (point) word is?

Direct the students to read silently to themselves while I listen 1 on 1 to
each student read.


Give each student a worksheet to complete, making sure to give direction

as to what is required in order for him or her to complete the worksheet.

Lesson Evaluation:
(Reflect on the lesson. What worked? What did not work? What would you change? Why?)

This lesson ran quite will, the students were engaged. It is a lesson that they would
normally do with the teacher so they knew the routine.
I would make sure next time that I was a bit firmer with inappropriate behaviour as
I probably chose to ignore some behaviour. I only did this, as I wanted the children
to continue with the task and not shut down.
The worksheet was done as part of the lesson as per teacher request; maybe
something different may be more appropriate in order to keep the focus of the
lesson. Perhaps a sound card game or something similar. This would encourage
them to work together instead of individual learning.
Overall this lesson ran well and I was happy with the out come.
