Instructional Strategies

Warm-Up (bellringer): Calendar information on board. We wait until our students finish with breakfast. Reading students go over daily information before it is discussed and see if the calendar information needs changing or not. I do not always change it specifically for this purpose. Daily Living/ Students Will review daily living words and see if they recognize them. Chores/ clean desk pick up trash etc…,

Science/ Watch video you tube and Reading A-z for winter precipitation, and watch weather at noon daily. We will watch weather and winter related materials. History answer question of winter Holidays around the world. .   Discuss topic.



Model: Teacher Models how to go over calendar information on Monday and as necessary. Students then take turns modeling throughout the day and week answering these questions.  Teacher models the information as needed and then assists students to be instructors as well. Examples of the math problems will be on the board. 



Guided Practice/Strategies: Teacher guides students through the process of asking the class what the daily information is. Teacher led over various subjects daily.



Independent Practice:  Students will practice throughout the week on daily information. To gain independent knowledge of daily information. Grades will be given for participation and for individual achievement. A book with what work will be done has been given to Mrs. Keeney As units and reading material changes the information will be changed. New lesson will be done.
