by moving between each station using different locomotor skills and
performing different stretches at each station using proper technique the

Formative: We will check for understanding by asking the students to rank their understanding of the
instructions/activity through a 1-5 scale with a show of fingers. Students will also use the self-check method when
solving the addition and subtraction problems at each station. When moving in between stations, teachers will
informally assess students form by providing verbal feedback and encouragement.

Summative: At the end of the lesson we will gather as a group and review the math and movement concepts. By
asking a few addition and subtraction problems and for some examples of their favorite movements, teachers can
assess the students overall understanding.

Command: Into section instruction given, explanations of expectations and protocols
Practice: Students proceed to each station using different locomotor movements and solve different math
Reciprocal: Students can give each other feedback on their form.
Guided Discovery: Students were asked to show various stretches which they have to demonstrate
Individual Program-Learner Design: Students will be invited to come up with their own locomotive
Back to the Wall: Teachers constantly watched the class and gave compliments or helped students with their
Inclusion: All students will be actively involved throughout the lesson
Self check: Students will have the responsibility of checking their math skills and stretching form

*Introduction: Good afternoon boys and girls
please take a seat in front of us. My name is Ms.
McCandless (M), and this is Ms. ODell, and Into: It is important to introduce ourselves and our protocols

lesson planned for you today." way to get their attention throughout the lesson, and we
ensure a safe environment.
*Expectations: First, we expect you all to play
hard, play fair, & play safe. Turn to a partner
and explain how you can play hard, play fair,
play safe. Can we have 1 or 2 examples that you
came up with?

*Protocols: Before we begin our first

the music you are free to move around. When
the music stops, you must freeze right where
you are. Alright, lets practice!

ANTICIPATORY SET: Prior knowledge/stimulates curiosity

Actively Engages the Mind:
The activity we have planned today calls for
some really smart first graders! But we know
youre almost 2nd graders, so we think you guys
are ready! Whos up for the challenge?!

Taps Into Prior Knowledge:
Heres something to get you all warmed up.
Hold up the correct amount of fingers! What is
2+2? 8+5? Great!

Stimulates Curiosity: Students become interested and ready to play by

completely and are ready to play, show us if you
understand how to skip! This type of movement
is what you will be doing to go in between each
station this afternoon!

In groups of three, you will hook arms and skip
inside the boundaries (later: gallop, hop, run,
walk, jog, slide) without running into any other
groups while the music is playing. When the Pictures of each stretch will be at each station to help

do the stretch. There will be a picture of which
stretch you are doing at your station. Check the
answer on the back before you begin. When you
hear the music start, you may start moving
again. Be sure to listen for the new movement!
Move all around the area to avoid going to the
same station twice! Show us on your fingers 1-
5, how well you understand the instructions for
our activity.

Invites the Challenge:

Now that you all understand, we would like to
invite you to play! Before we begin, turn to a
partner and share any safety concerns that you
might have during this activity! Great, I heard
them all. Are there any questions? Now spread Students are excited to participate and show understanding

girls! We are so impressed by your adding and
subtracting skills. You worked so hard today.

Asks Questions Relevant to the Objectives:

What was your favorite part of the activity
Students review the activities that they participated in, while
realizing the importance of stretching.
What were different ways that we moved?
Why is it important to stretch?
What was the most challenging?

Applies the Learning Beyond the Classroom:
How do we use our math skills outside of
school? Allows students to realize how they can use math in their
Have you ever seen your parents use math at the daily life outside of the classroom.
store? How do they use it?
When else do we use stretching? Helps students understand that stretching is also used in
other aspects of life outside of physical education class.

Uses the Content of the Standard:

Thank you so much for participating in the
activity today! We loved watching you properly
skip, gallop, run, and jump. And your stretching
was amazing! I didnt see anyone bouncing
around. We had so much fun watching you
practice your math while moving around and
working in teams! Find the two other people
that were in your group, give them a high five
and tell them something they did well today!
Thanks for having us!
