Game on the computers - 1/3 of the classroom will be engaged on interactive games that have to do with being able to identifying the days of the week. 2. Book activity – 1/3 of the class will be creating their own book. A book will already be made that has 8 pages. First page will contain a title and a picture. The students will be instructed to dedicate one page per day in chronological order. Each page will have to have a picture of what their favorite thing to do on the specific day. 3. Carpet time- 1/3 of the students will be on the carpet engaging in an interactive activity with the teacher.*Students will rotate and complete each center.Step 4: Story Time - Read a book to the students that deals with the days of the week. http://compare.ebay.com/like/330835267745?var=lv&ltyp=AllFixedPriceItemTypes&var =sbar - After the book is read, wrap up the concept by having them fill out a Days of the Week Graphic Organizer or completing a puzzle. This will allow the students the write the days of the week in chronological order and make the chronological connection. - The puzzle is as follows:

Many students may be struggling with not only the language, but also with feelings offrustration at having to learn content, and technology. We will speak slowly and give instructionsin a clear and concise manner, by using gestures and expressions that help them understand. I will also provide a guided example of what’s expected of them in order for the students tohave an understanding of what I expect them to do. Providing visuals will make it easier for thestudents to fully comprehend. Small/cooperative groups, like carpet time, will also allow thestudents to learn from their peers. This gives them a different aspect of the subject matter.Strategies – Instructional:The following instructional tools will be used throughout this lesson plan: - Oral Presentation - Lecture/Presentation - Formal Assessment - Pre-Assessment - CentersReading Strategies:Mapping/Graphic OrganizerPredictingSummarizingVisualizingWords in ContextUse Text SupportThink Aloud
