Lesson Plan
Lesson Title: Introduction/ Predictions Grade: 5 Date: February 26th 2018
Subject/Strand: Novel Study Unit: Silverwing Location: Classroom Times: 9:10- 10:10am
Lesson Plan Description (What are you teaching? How does it fit into the context of the unit? What are the big ideas/essential/enduring understandings?)
During this lesson, students will be introduced to the novel Silverwing by Kenneth Oppel. This novel will be used as unit plan/ novel
study where they will complete different activities to demonstrate their understanding of the book. In this particular lesson, students
will be shown only the cover of the book, this will be displayed onto the smartboard. As a class, students will share their predictions
with the class, and the teacher will write the ideas onto chart paper. This activity will then lead into a discussion on the books theme
of determination. Students will make a mind map where students will think about different examples of determination and connect
those examples to the predictions that were previously made. After students have made predictions, we will then use the smartboard
to fill out a KWL chart, as a class and then individually, on what we know about bats, what we want to do about bats, and what we
want to learn about bats.

Prior Learning: Prior to this lesson, students will have
-Students will have had previous knowledge on bats due to grade 2 discussions and learning. Students will have experience filling out
KWL charts and mind maps through previous activities.
I.E.P. program implications: Accommodations, Modifications
For students who would prefer to not be actively involved in discussion, they can be in charge of filling out the mind map chart for the
For students who have difficulty filling out the KWL chart by themselves, they can work with a partner to fill out the chart.
Differentiation: Content, Process, Product, Environment, Assessment
Process: Students can designate one student to fill out the mind map and KWL chart.
Environment: Students will be sitting on the carpet to ensure that there is open discussion and inclusion
Assessment: Students can have extra time to submit KWL chart if needed
Learning Skills/Work Habits: [ ] responsibility, [ X] organization, [ ] independent work, [ X] collaboration, [ ] initiative, [ X] self-regulation
Organization: Students will organize their ideas into a mind map and KWL chart
Collaboration: Students will discuss different ideas and predications with the class
Self-regulation: Students will listen to the person who is speaking without interruption

Extension Activities/Next Steps (where will this lesson lead to next)

- This lesson will then lead into three lessons, the first lesson will be reading the first two chapters of Silverwing, and then
students will work in groups of 4-5 where they will pick out one scene that is of interest to them and create their own
Instagram image of that scene. Students will then present their Instagram image to the class. The second lesson will consist of
reading the next two chapters as a class, and then students will individually write a newspaper article about one incident that
occurred in the previous four chapters. The third lesson, students will read two more chapters in guided reading groups, and
they will then do research on bats and put together a presentation of their findings.
