Objective (Explicit):
Students will be able to understand the meaning of problem and solution by
matching various real world problems with solutions, identifing the problem
and solution in a story using key details, and writing a solution for a given
problem.
Evidence of Mastery (Measurable):
Exceeds
Characteristics:
SWBAT correctly identify and
write a solution to a given
problem. Additionally, students
will be able to write about a
problem they have had and how
they solved their problem.

Sub-objectives, SWBAT (Sequenced from basic to complex):


Review: Yesterday we began talking about problem and solution in stories.
Students listened as the teacher read aloud the story Unlovable and discussed
the problem the dog was having and how his problem was solved.
New Learning:
Students will be able to match real life problem and solution scenarios.
Students will be able to identify the problem that a character is having in a
story and discuss how the character solved his/her problem, with teacher
assistance.
Students will be able to generate a written solution to a given problem.
Relevancy: It is important for students to really understand the meaning of
problem and solution before they can successfully identify the problem and

solution in a story using key details. Todays lesson will help solidify the
meaning for the students, as the real life scenarios are relevant to their lives.
Later in the week, students will be asked to read a story and independently
identify the problem and solution.

Instructional Input

Opening (state objectives, connect to previous learning, and make relevant


to real life)
Teacher will explain that today we are going to continue learning about problem and
solution. By the end of today, I want us to feel very confident in understanding the
meaning of problem and solution. I also want us to be able to talk about the problem
and solution in a story. Yesterday we read the story Unlovable and talked about the
problem and solution. Who can remind me the problem in that story? The solution?

solution. The teacher will model one 100% and then ask
for student imput to complete the others.
Co-Teaching Strategy/Differentiation
The anchor chart will be accompanied with pictures to help visual learners.
Modeling a few matching examples as a class with help clear up confusion
during the guided practice portion of the lesson.

Guided Practice

Teacher Will:
Explain expectations and directions for the next activity.
Students will be working at their desks with their
shoulder partners. Eacher pair of students will get a
problem and solution working mat. All cards must be
remain on the working mat. It is the students job to read
each problem or solution card and find its correct match.
Early finishers will be provided with the story Owen to
read silently at their seats while the other groups finish.
Once all groups are finished we will briefly review the
answers.
Teacher will call students to the reading chair. The
teacher will read aloud the story Owen. As the teacher
reads, the students will be thinking about the problem
Owen is having and how his problem was solved. The
teacher will write student responses on chart paper.

Student Will:
Work with their
shoulder partner at
their seats to match
problems with
solutions on their
working mats. Early
finishers will be able

will be reading later
in the lesson.
Students will listen

Owen. As the teacher
reads, the students
will be thinking about
the problem and
solution in this story.

Independent Practice

Co-Teaching Strategy/Differentiation
Students will be working with partners that will be able to offer assistance and
guidance. Lucille will be paired with Abby. Jason will be paired with Sophie. Mieka
will be paired with Mya. Lexi will be paired with Blake.
Early finishers will be able to partner read the story Owen before the teacher
reads it aloud to the whole class. This ensures that all students are engaged
during the lesson.
Teacher Will:
Student Will:
Explain and pass out independent practice worksheet.

and then write a
solution to that
problem.
Co-Teaching Strategy/Differentiation
During this time, the teacher will pull Lucille, Lexi, Jason, and Mieka to the horse
shoe table to assist with the worksheet.

Enrichment: Students that finish identifying a solution to a problem will be asked


to turn their papers over write about a problem they have had in school or at
home and how they solved their problem (text-self connection).
Closing/Student Reflection/Real-life connections:
Teacher will close the lesson by asking students to share the meaning of problem
and the meaning of solution. Teacher will explain that on Thursday we will be
working in small groups during reading centers. In these small groups we will be
reading a short story and writing about the problem and solution!
