LESSON INSTRUCTION

INTRODUCTION

  1. Begin by asking students if they know what a sentence is.
  2. Write a simple sentence on the whiteboard, such as "The cat sat."
  3. Show a corresponding picture of a cat sitting.
  4. Ask students to explain how the picture helps them understand the sentence.

INSTRUCTION

  1. Distribute sentence strips to each student and have them look at the picture.
  2. Read the sentence aloud and have the students find the corresponding word in the sentence.
  3. Write the word on the whiteboard and have the students match it to the word in the sentence on their strip.
  4. Ask students to explain how the picture helped them identify the word in the sentence.

GUIDED PRACTICE

  1. Repeat the process with a new sentence and picture, allowing students to work in pairs to find the word in the sentence.
  2. Write the words on the chart paper as a group.

    INDEPENDENT PRACTICE

    1. Distribute new sentence strips to each student, with corresponding pictures.
    2. Have students work independently to find the word in the sentence that matches the picture.
    3. Monitor student progress and provide support as needed.

      HOMEWORK

      1. Assign students to find a picture in a book or magazine and write a simple sentence that describes the picture.
      2. Instruct students to bring their sentence and picture to share during the next lesson.

        EXIT TICKET

        1. Provide each student with a sticky note.
        2. Instruct students to write the word they found in their sentence and attach it to the corresponding picture.
        3. Collect the sticky notes to check for understanding and to monitor student progress.

          ASSESSMENT

          1. Formative assessments will be conducted during the lesson to monitor student progress and understanding.
          2. The independent practice will be used to determine students' mastery of the objective.

            CLOSURE

            1. Ask students to share one thing they learned during the lesson.
            2. Review the importance of using pictures to help understand words in sentences.

              EXTENSION

              1. Students can create their own simple sentences and corresponding pictures.
              2. Students can work in pairs to match sentences and pictures.
              3. Students can practice reading simple sentences with the corresponding pictures.

              INTERVENTION

              1. For students who struggle with finding the word in the sentence, provide additional support through one-on-one instruction or small group work.
              2. For students who need extra assistance, provide sentence strips with simpler sentences and more obvious pictures to help them build confidence.
              3. For students who are still struggling, provide additional opportunities for practice and review, such as extra worksheets or guided practice sessions with a teacher or instructional assistant.

              TEACHING TIPS

              The Picture Match-Up Game can be a fun and engaging extension activity for students who have mastered the objective of identifying words in sentences based on provided pictures. This game can be played in small groups or pairs, and it can be adjusted to fit the skill level of the students. By mixing up the picture cards and sentence strips, students can be challenged to find the correct matches on their own, without the visual cues of the corresponding pictures and sentences. The Picture Match-Up Game can also be used as an assessment tool to monitor student progress and understanding.

              • Use high-quality and visually engaging picture cards to capture students' attention and help them better understand the words in the sentence.
              • Provide students with immediate feedback on their progress and understanding by monitoring their performance during independent practice and exit ticket assessments.
              • Adjust the level of difficulty of the lesson by using more complex sentences and pictures for advanced students or simpler ones for struggling learners.

              STUDENT MISCONCEPTIONS

              • Difficulty identifying the correct word in the sentence, even when provided with a corresponding picture.
              • Over-reliance on the picture to identify the word, rather than using the context of the sentence.
              • Struggle with explaining how the picture helps them identify the word in the sentence.
