demonstrate.
Instructional Procedures:

Day 1:
First 10 minutes: Introduction of the activity- I will explain that we are going to use tablets to practice tracing the
letters of their names and then practice writing them on our own. I will explain the vocab words and I will
demonstrate all of this on the smartboard for everyone to see.
Next 15 minutes: The students will be working on their tablets and writing while I sit close by and observe. I will be
available to assist the students If needed.
Next 5 minutes: We will review as a class and I will ask them about their thoughts on the activity and explain we will
keep practicing the rest of the week.

Day 2:
First 5 minutes: I will remind the students of the activity and do a demonstration on the smartboard for the class.
Next 15 minutes: The students will be working on their tablets and writing while I sit close by and observe. I will be
available to assist the students if needed.
Next 10 minutes: We will review as a class and discuss what we need to work on. I will ask them about their thoughts
and how they feel about the lesson.

Day 3:
First 5 minutes: I will remind the students of the activity and do a demonstration on the smartboard for the class.

Next 15 minutes: The students will be working on their tablets and writing while I sit close by and observe. I will be

This website shows developmentally appropriate approaches for language and literacy in early childhood. It has
books, articles and blogs on why it’s important and how to incorporate it in the classroom.

Differentiated Instructional Support: Describe how instruction can be differentiated (changed or altered) to meet the
needs of gifted or accelerated students: This can be extended by giving them their full names, or by giving them the
full alphabet or even different words to trace and write.

Discuss additional activities you could do to meet the needs of students who might be struggling with the material: If
there are students struggling, we could check out the tablets for them to take home for practice and bring back to
school. I could also extend this into a writing game with the tablets for more practice.
