Reflection: Lesson Planning Thanksgiving Time: Reviewing Numbers 11 - 15 - Section 2: Review Activity 2


This lesson was created to help my students review numbers 11-15, but I also created it because I knew I would be having a substitute in my classroom.  Since I spent a half a year as a substitute, I put a lot of thought into the creation of my lessons when I am gone.  I try to avoid the introduction of new concepts if possible.  If a substitute is introducing a new concept, I give detailed directions about how I want the concept taught and I include definitions of vocabulary words that will be used.

Lessons like this one are perfect for substitutes.  Since it is a review, there are no worries about how to teach the concept.  The lesson has very explicit instructions.  Since I use "write the room" activities often, in various subjects, the students know what to do.  It is also fun and interactive.  This lessens the chances that there will be management issues for the substitute.

The "Write the Room" format is one that can easily be replicated for use with a substitute.  Various concepts can be covered and the activity is easy to replicate.  I keep a variety of Write the Room activities ready to go in case I have a substitute.
