D. Procedure: 1. o o o Introduce- I will tell the students that today we are learning about moving to new homes. Explain- I will explain that moving is a normal part of life and there are many reasons people move. Discuss- As a class we will discuss other places that students have lived. We will also discuss why they moved only if they are comfortable giving the reasoning.

2. Before reading we will go over the vocabulary terms for the lesson. The vocabulary term for this lesson is country. 3. Next the students will be instructed to open their books to page 60. As a class we will read pages 60-63. As we read I will stop to check for understanding. 4. After reading we will discuss places students might like to move to and why. We will also discuss friends or family members that have moved, and where and why they moved. 5. Then the students will be told to get out a piece of paper. They will be instructed to draw certain items they would want to take with them if they moved. They will also be instructed to write a few sentences about why they would choose those items. E. CLOSURE: I will then close with explaining that people move to many different places for many different reasons. I will assign the Study Guide/ Homework worksheet. F. Assessment: What will you use to measure student understanding? I will measure students understanding by evaluating their answers during group discussion and their answers to the classwork. I will also evaluate the students understanding by reading over their Study Guide/ Homework worksheet.

Explain how you will know students understand the concepts from the lesson. I will know whether students understood the concepts by evaluating their answers, classwork and homework. Based on all three components of the lesson I will determine whether the student understood the concept or not.

Reflection: 1. Which part of the lesson do you think will be the easiest for you to teach? I think the easiest part of the lesson will be the group discussion on places the students have lived and why. I think this part of the lesson will be fun for students. 2. Which part will be most challenging for you to teach? I think the most challenging part will be teaching the students about the reasons why people move. Sometimes the circumstances of moving can be a sensitive topic for children. I will have to be very aware of this when teaching it. 2. How will you follow up or extend this lesson? I will extend this lesson by doing the Extend lesson on pages 64 and 65. This lesson explains how moving today is a lot different than moving in the past. After reading we will list the similarities and differences about how/why people moved in the past and how/why they move today. 3. What will you do for students who dont grasp the concepts? For the students who dont grasp the concepts I will spend more time working with them one on one. I will also try to pair them with students who better understand the concepts. I 4. Which part of the lesson, if any, do you think might need to change? I may need to find a more sensitive way to approach why students in the class have moved. I may just ask students places they have moved and then ask why they think people might move instead of discussing why they moved. 6. When you were writing this lesson plan, what was the most difficult part? The most difficult part of writing this lesson was coming up with solutions to how to be sensitive to students different backgrounds.
