- Assessing of prior knowledge ( retention on what was taught in lesson 1)
- Applying of concept in daily home routines
Time needed (25 minutes total):
- 5 minutes to complete race tray and writing of routines
- 10 minutes for race game as C wanted to replay it many times
- 10 minutes to recap theory, reading of routines, and writing of word
Materials needed (assessing of prior knowledge):
- Mega blocks created in Lesson 1
- A pair of scissors
- Red tape
- Unused cutlery tray holder
- 3 to 5 toy cars that can fit in the cutlery tray holder
- Stick the red tape on the cutlery tray holder so that it resembles the road.
- Revised the concepts using the mega blocks with C.
- Showed him the toy cars and got him to place them in any order of position 1 to 5.
- Conduct the one finger push race (I coined this term. Basically I’m trying to build on his finger strength which I hope will assist in his penmanship).
End of lesson for objective 1.
Materials needed (applying of concept in daily home routines):
- Easel stand (bought ours from Ikea)
- Coloured-markers for writing (also from Ikea)
- Note: We’ve been using this easel stand for two years. We use it for teaching, writing of routines, drawing, etc. I used to write the daily routines and draw empty square box at each routine so that C can put a tick √ to indicate when a routine is completed. This visual cue seems to make him more aware and involved.
- Showed C the board.
- Recap on ‘Ordinal numbers’. C read the definition with prompts by me if he couldn’t read any words.
- Explained to him that we’re changing our written routines to begin with ordinal numbers .
- Got him involved by reading the routines and filling in the second routine.
- Used the easel as a visual reminder on what we need to do before heading out.
End of lesson 2.
