Common Core or Early Learning Standards Lesson Plan

As discussed in Chapter 3 of our text, most states are using the Common Core State Standards Initiative or Early Learning Standards to guide their teaching. Starting on page 5 of Chapter 3 of the text, the author clearly outlines considerations that need to be made when planning curriculum for infants/toddlers, preschoolers, and primary-grade students. Using these considerations and either the Common Core Standards or the Early Learning Standards for your state, choose one standard. You will need to develop a lesson for teaching this standard to infants/toddlers, preschoolers, and primary- grade children. You will use the Lesson Plan Template to create your lesson.

Your lesson plan should include:

An introductory paragraph that describes the physical environment of the classroom where the lesson will be taught.

All aspects of the lesson, using the lesson plan template provided. In addition to the completion of the template, please address the specific requirements listed below:

Identify which Common Core Standard or Early Learning Standard you will address and which National
Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) standard is being covered (in the Standards section of the template).

Within the Practice/Check for Understanding section, clearly differentiate how you will modify the lesson for infants/toddlers, preschoolers, and primary-grade children (in the Lesson Development and the Practice/Check for Understanding sections).

A closing paragraph, following the completed template, that discusses which of the considerations mentioned in the text for planning curriculum for infants/toddlers, preschoolers, and primary-grade students you took into account when developing this lesson.
