Basic Lesson Plan Components
Choose a Concept: What do I want the children to learn?
Objectives: What do I want the children to do to help them understand this concept? (Must be in observable terms – see handout, SIMPLE ACTION WORDS).
Procedures & Materials: What will I do to achieve the planned objectives? How will this experience or activity be conducted? What questions that encourage learning will be asked? How will I stimulate children’s interest? What materials will I need to teach this lesson?
Assessment: How will student progress be measured for each objective?
Remedial & Enrichment Activities: How will I remediate or extend the concept? How will I build on student’s interests with additional learning activities, integrate the concept into other subject areas, prepare learning centers, etc.?
Exceptionalities: How will I plan for cultural diversity and children with special needs?
