OVERARCHING GOALS FOR THE LESSON

LESSON OBJECTIVES AND STANDARDS

Reading one and two syllable words by sounding out
each syllable in the word as they read it.

Standard 3: Know and apply grade-level phonics and
word analysis skills when decoding words.
3.3: Read a two-syllable word by breaking the word into
syllables.
Students will be able to read two syllable words by
breaking each word down into syllables.

IMPORTANT CONTENT CONNECTION:
Students will need to be able to read and sound out syllables in words with a maximum of two syllables in them. By
doing so, students will then be able to read two-syllable words clearly and efficiently while improving their reading
skills.
IMPORTANT THEORETICAL CONNECTIONS & FOUNDATIONS:
This lesson is important for the students to master because in order for them to develop their reading skills properly,
they need to know how to efficiently read bigger words by breaking them down into separate syllables. Once a
student can break down a two-syllable word, they will be able to recognize how to break down larger words the
same way.

Anticipated Student
Responses

5-7 minute lesson.

Students will be standing up
in the classroom with ample
amount of space around
them. They will read the word
on the screen out loud,

Teaching notes

Evidence of learning.
Students will say each word
on the screen out loud,
enunciating each word by
sounding out the proper
syllables of each word.
Evidence of understanding

sounding out each of the
syllables. After answering the
question on the screen, the
students will perform the
correct action that
corresponds to the animal
that’s on the screen.

LINK PRIOR
KNOWLEDGE.
Students will use their prior
knowledge of one and twosyllable words to
pronounce each word on
the screen, and say how
many syllables are in each
word.
INSTRUCTIONAL
STRATEGIES.
The teacher will go through
the PowerPoint to review
what the students had
learned about one and two
syllable words.

REFLECT and
SUMMARIZE.
After the students have
read the last word on the
PowerPoint and sat back
down in their seats, the
teacher will check for

students read the words.

able to read a two syllable
word the same way they
read one syllable words.

Provide good
demonstration for reading
the practice word out loud,
and picking out the two
syllables in the word. Then
