G. Procedure:
1. The teacher will begin by telling the class the student-friendly standard and going over
the vocabulary words in the order as they are written above.
2. Teacher will then have students stand up at their desk and be instructed to follow the
teacher as he/she points left, right, up and down, and moves left, right, down, up and
turns around. Play a game with these directions, pick a direction and have students do
it without showing them. Pick a couple of students to choose a direction for the class to
follow. (*A good way for students to remember the difference between left and right is
when they put their hands in front of them and the back of their hands facing them,
their left hands index and thumb will look like an L.)
3. Teacher has students sit down and explain they will help her/him move towards an
object in the room. Pick a couple of students to take turns placing the object around
the room and giving oral directions for teacher to move towards it (only follow the
exact directions students give you).
4. Now it is the students turn to follow oral directions. Students comfortable enough using
a blindfold can do so and those who are not can just close their eyes. Again pick a
couple of students (different from last activity) to place an object around the room
and give oral directions for student to moves towards.
5. When all students have given and followed directions, they will sit down and be given
an Oral Directions worksheet. Students will wait, and listen to teachers instructions.
Pick a shape for students to make (it doesnt have to be a regular shape). Give
directions for them be able to draw it, tell them where to start and which way to move.
All students shapes should match yours.
H. Assessment:
What will you use to measure student understanding?
I will use my observations on how well students follow the oral directions in the whole
class activity and the oral directions worksheet.
Explain how you will know students understand the concepts from the lesson.
Students will follow and give simple oral directions to move from one location to
another. I will be able to observe which students have trouble following and giving
instructions using the class activity. Using the worksheet, I will be able to assess which
students followed directions by matching their shapes to mine and making sure they
are identical.
I. Closure:
As a whole class we will repeat the warm-up of having students point and move left,
right, forward/up, backward/down, and turn around. Ask students how each one is
done, but do not tell them, only correct them.

J. Reflection:
1. Which part of the lesson do you think will be the easiest for you to teach?
The easiest part of the lesson to teach will be modeling for the students which way
is left, right, up, forward, down and backward and having them follow along.
2. Which part will be most challenging for you to teach?
The most challenging part of the lesson to teach will be having students close their
eyes and follow oral directions. They wont be able to see, so a close eye must be
kept on them so they do not get hurt.
3. How will you follow up or extend this lesson?
If possible, students can go outside and be paired up. They will take turns giving oral
directions and following them. Again blindfolds will be optional.
4. What can you do for students who dont grasp the concepts?
For students who dont grasp the concept, the teacher or another student can
walk with them, so they have someone guiding them.
5. Which part of the lesson, if any, do you think might need to change?
If anything needs changing, it will be having students use blindfold or even close
their eyes just for safety issues.
6. When you were writing this lesson plan, what was the most difficult part?
The most difficult part was finding a way or ways to help students who dont grasp
the concept better understand.
