General Characteristics Kindergarten Students Male and Female Age: 4-6 (maybe older) Class Size: about 18 Diverse in race and ethnicity Disabilities Learning or Physical Disability These disabilities could result in extra time or help
Students may not know the software Kidspiration Students may not know how to use PowerPoint Students should know some background information about computers Students should know how to pronounce letters and blend sounds
The students show variety with kinesthetic, auditory, and visual learning styles Some students are more understanding of certain learning styles Most students like to work within groups Most students like to work with “hands on” activities
Students have previously worked together in groups Students have done some activities on the computer Students have done worksheets and games to promote learning
1.Demonstrate understanding of spoken words,syllables, and sounds (phonemes). Students will beable to recognize rhyming words.2. Know and apply grade-level phonics and wordanalysis skills in decoding words. Students will beassociating and grouping words together.3. The student will recognize and recall the one toone correspondence between most letters andsounds. Students will be working on blendingsounds.
Methods The teacher will be using all three learning styles to connect and engage with every student. Specifically, students will be hearing a lecture, reading words, and working on computer activities to check for comprehension.
Media The teacher will use word processing documents to check for comprehension of ending sounds and blending The teacher will use Kidspiration to also check for comprehension The teacher will use PowerPoint to engage students in an educational game that is appropriate for the lesson
Materials Students will be using a computer to complete worksheets, games, and activities. Students will be using Microsoft Word to complete worksheets Students will be using Kidspiration to complete activities
Preview Materials The teacher will look through the worksheets and ensure that the blending sounds are appropriate for the lesson The teacher will present a personal Kidspiration to give an example of what is expected for the activity.
Prepare Materials The teacher will use their personal computer and projector to display an example of the blending worksheets and Kidspiration activity The teacher will help if it is really needed, but would prefer for students to work on it themselves or ask a peer The teacher will make sure that the activities for the lesson are pulled up on the computers to make sure there is not confusion
Prepare the environment Students will be sitting at assigned computers to limit talking, but also next to students that could help each other if needed Students will be sitting all together so they can share their Kidspiration Quest if time permits
Students will be given 20 minutes to explore the Kispiration software with a quest to see some features that are frequently used Prior to the lesson on the computers, a seating chart will be created to keep talking to a minimum and pair stronger students with weaker students. Students will be learning about this topic prior to this lesson
