Describe how this lesson is developmentally appropriate:


Vygotsky's theory promotes learning contexts in which students play an active role in
learning, which is why this hands-on activity and discussion will help promote students
learning of nouns and more specifically proper nouns.

Pre-Assessment
To assess prior knowledge we would create an anchor chart with nouns divided into
person, place, and thing. Would would ask students to name a noun and which section it
belongs in. We would then ask students to see if they could name a proper noun.

Assessment
How will the students demonstrate that they have attained the goals of the lesson?
The students will think of their favorite place and create a poster advertising their place
using nouns and proper nouns.
Include a copy of the lesson assessment.
Provide exemplar student responses/products (model outcome).
Post-Assessment
The students work will be evaluated by presenting their poster. The poster will be graded
by a checklist including creativity, color, use of nouns and proper nouns.

Key Vocabulary:
Technology needed:

or idea.
needed.
Other required materials: white
board, anchor chart, pencil,
paper, poster board, markers,
and crayons.
Accommodations:
For students with shortened attention spans, we will place them next to me during the
lesson portion to keep them more focused on the activity at hand. We will also keep
close proximity to these students during the exploration portion. If a child needs help
spelling or with cutting out picture, we will get to their level and assist them. I will also
follow individual IEP plans.

Lesson Opening:
To begin we will ask students to write their name down on a piece of paper.
We will then ask for a few volunteers to come to the front and show their names.
We will then pose the question to the class: why did you all start your names with a
capital letter?
The class will have a discussion as to why we capitalize names.
We will explain the the reason we capitalize them is because they are proper nouns. This
will be a bridge to our instruction portion.
