Lesson Plan

Teacher Candidates Name: Liana Bluzer

Tentative Date: April 4th-5th

Lesson Title: Basics of Geometric Shape

Context:

Grade Level/Subject: 2nd Grade/ Art

Disability Categories represented: Autism Spectrum Disorder and

Cerebral Palsy

Type of classroom (continuum of placements): Inclusion

Describe UDL integration (into anticipatory, procedure, guided

practice, and assessment)

Teacher holds up Mouse Shapes by Ellen Stoll Walsh and asks students if they

can name, write, or draw what shape the book is, calling for volunteers

(Anticipatory set), (Combs, 2011) and (UDL integration), (Ralabate, 2011).

Teacher asks Picture your house. What shapes do you see? Then have

students talk with a partner, write, draw, or name what they see (Anticipatory

Set) (Combs, 2011) and (UDL integration), (Ralabate, 2011). Teacher tells

students to write the shapes down or take crayons from the supplies bin at the

front of the room and draw them with crayons in their notebooks, turn to their

partners and Think-Pair-Share (UDL Integration and Communication skills),

(Ralabate, 2011). Teacher walks over to blue clock and says The clock is a

blue circle, as an example of what the students should do. Teacher adds that
27

students may also write the name of the shape, color, and object in the

objects color, instead, if they choose not to draw. Teacher provides an

example by writing out The clock is blue in blue crayon (Guided Practice),

(Hermmann2014) and UDL integration), (Ralabate, 2011). Assess students

through observation, class discussion, Think-Pair-Share, creative projects,

writing, drawing, and handing in assignments and worksheets (UDL

integration), (Ralabate, 2011).

Collaborative methods used to enhance the lesson (e.g., families,

community resources, school resources) Students and parents have

additional resources to use to practice shapes and colors together Colors

Games http://www.primarygames.com/color_fun/color_fun.htm. School

resources are incorporated by students looking around classroom to use

school objects as a way of learning shape and color. Community resources are

incorporated in the homework for Day 2: Locate five shapes around your

neighborhood and draw them in your notebook. Use only secondary colors to

color in each shape. Label the shapes and colors. This allows children to

interact with their community and neighborhood outside of school.

Central Focus: Students use analytical skills and creating to learn about the

fundamentals of shape, how it is important to art and everyday life, and how it is

coexists with color.

shapes they found in classroom, as well as the labeled colors they are as a way to

assess to make sure students understand and comprehend shape and color.

Day 2:

Formative: Teacher will observe as students create house with cutout shapes and

label the shapes and colors, and will have a class discussion on what shapes and

colors students see in painting after being given a black and white printout and

coloring in the shapes with their proper color, as a way to assess to make sure

students understand and comprehend shape and color.

Instruction Strategies and Learning Tasks (include anticipatory set,

procedure, guided practice, and independent practice):

Day 4:

1. Teacher holds up Mouse Shapes by Ellen Stoll Walsh and asks students if they

(Anticipatory set), (Combs, 2011) and (UDL integration), (Ralabate, 2011). (4

minutes)
32

2. Teacher reads Mouse Shapes by Ellen Stoll Walsh and asks students if they

can name some of the shapes in the pictures, calling on volunteers. Teacher

tells students to think about the shapes they say, as they will be used for

todays project. (5 minutes)

3. When book is finished, teacher tells students to keep in mind some of their

favorite shapes from the story, such a circles, squares, rectangles, triangles,

etc, and to look around the classroom and find some of those shapes around

them. Teacher tells students they must also remember what color the objects

are. Teacher explains they will then draw the shape in their notebook in the

correct color, and they will then write a sentence about the shape and color of

the object.

4. Teacher walks over to blue clock and says The clock is a blue circle., as an

example of what the students should do. Teacher adds that students may also

write the name of the shape, color, and object in the objects color, instead, if

they choose not to draw. Teacher provides an example by writing out The

clock is blue in blue crayon (Guided Practice and UDL integration), (Ralabate,

2011).

5. Students get up and walk around the classroom, looking for objects. As

students walk around, teacher places crayons on everyones desks.

6. Students go back to seat, open their notebook, and begin drawing shapes with

their correct color, and writing sentences. (15 minutes)

7. Teacher observes and takes notes on students and assists while they do this

project.

8. When finished, some students will be called on to share their pictures. (6

minutes)

9. Teacher collects all projects at the end of class, as a way of assessment to

make sure the students understand and comprehend what they learned about

shape, and previously about color, as well as the way they work together.
33

10. Students place crayons back in supplies bin at the front of the classroom. (3

minutes)

11. Students play shape game on internet to practice shape knowledge as a class

and independently http://www.abcya.com/shapes_geometry_game.htm .

12. Teacher assigns homework to locate five different shapes in their house and

draw them in their notebook. Use only primary colors to color in each shape.

Label the shapes and colors. Teacher asks if any questions. (3 minutes)

Day 5:

1. Have students look at the face of the person sitting next to them. Teacher

tells students to write the shapes down or take crayons from the supplies bin

at the front of the room and draw them with crayons in their notebooks, turn

Landscape by Picasso http://www.pablopicasso.net/images/Mediterranean

%20Landscape%20Pablo%20Picasso.jpg and puts it on the projector so the

class can see (Technology integration), (Rose & Meyer, 2002).

5. Teacher hands out black and white print outs of the painting and crayons.

6. Teacher tells class they will analyze the painting to identify geometric shapes

and what color they are in the painting. Students will then look at their black

and white version of the painting and will use the proper colored crayon to

color in the shapes they see. The students will then label each colored in

shape they chose with the name of the shape and the name of the color it is.

house template sheet.

11. Teacher tells students they will be creating their own geometric shaped house

and labeling the shapes they used, their color, and whether they are primary

or secondary.

12. As example, teacher takes house template, glue, and precut shapes, and

starts to glue yellow triangles onto the roof. Teacher then takes pencil and

labels each triangle yellow, triangle, primary(Guided Practice).

13. Students do this activity, while teacher walks around observing and assisting

where needed. (15 minutes)
