The teacher realizes that not all students learn the same way. The teacher will
differentiate in tiers.
The first tier, students below grade level, will have a KWL graphic organizer with
a word bank.
The second tier, students on grade level, will have a KWL graphic organizer
without the word bank
The third tier, students above grade level, will have to write out the KWL graphic
organizer on their own.

The teacher will direct the students to fill in their KWL charts about community
helpers. The group will go over the glogster for reference for the KWL charts. The
group will brainstorm things that they know and what they want to learn about
community helpers. The teacher will make sure the students know the L part of the
chart is filled once the lesson is over. (What is a KWL chart? What do we know about
community helpers? What do we want to learn about community helpers?)


The teacher will read the books When I Grow Up and Communities from A to Z
to the class. The class will then discuss which helpers listed in the books are present in
their community. The students will discuss the books and what they are about. (What

community helpers are in our community? What was When I Grow Up about? What
was Communities from A to Z about?)

The students will finish their KWL chart of what they learned and then will fill
out an exit slip. The exit slip will ask for them to write two things they learned from
the lesson. They will also be required to draw a picture making sure there are at least
three different colors in the drawing. (What goes in the L column of the KWL chart?
What are two things you learned? What picture will you draw? How many colors are
in the drawing?)

The teacher will collect and review the exit slips.

The teacher will collect the KWL charts to make sure they were filled out
