1. Topic-
Spelling and Reading
2. Content-
Spelling larger words than they are use to, because they see them in their reading.
3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes-
Learning to spell words that they see in their reading.
4. Objectives-
NCSC 1.01, 2.02, 2.03, 3.02. Learning what the differences are between paraphrasing and summarizing.
5. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

Correct their DGP Sentence for the day. Also they review the book that they are reading in groups in class.

B. Development-

They have alphabet cards, and she will call out a word on their spelling list, and if your letter is in the word, then you have to go to the front of the class to help spell the word.

C. Practice-

SHe calls out a word, and they have to go to the front and make the word, and if your not in the word then you have to spell it when they finish. If spelled or done wrong, then they stay until they figure out how to fix it.

D. Independent Practice-

She gets them to write out what they remember from reading their book the other day. They also split into groups and read their books, and talk about what they have learned every couple of pages.

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

When they are spelling their words, she tried to pronounce every letter that would be in the word, and said every syllable slowly so the kids could think of the letters that were involved.

F. Checking for understanding-

She gives them a quiz on what they read in the story the day before.

G. Closure-

She goes back over the parts of the book that they had read for the day. They read chapters 10-13 in James and the giant peach for the day, and she answered any questions they had or went over words that they might not have understood. She also asked questions about the book and makes the class answer her so she knows everyone understood the book.
7. Evaluation-
She makes sure that the kids are on task and understand everything that they have done so far. She reviews things that they did a week or two earlier making sure the kids remember them for their test at the end of the year.
8. Teacher Reflection-
Kids were really into the lesson that Mrs. Anderson taught. She made sure that all kids were answering questions and understanding what they were doing. Of course I was only in there 90 minutes, but I could tell that all the kids enjoyed her class. If one kid didn't understand something, she would stop the lesson and explain it or allow other children to try to put it in other words, and she wouldn't move on until everyone understood what they were doing, she didn't care if it took 2 minutes or 20 minutes, she would have everyone on the same page.
