First Grade Lesson Plan-Giving Tree
The Giving Tree Lesson plan page
Any academics taught to children can also include social and or moral lessons as well. I think it is important to creatively incorporate as much information as possible into the lessons we teach to our children. This can make the lesson more interesting for the children, and learning to associate information with ideas can be helpful too. I hope this can give you ideas to incorporate new concepts into your lessons. Your input is much appreciated! Thank you.
Students will learn to write and read the word give and learn the concept of giving and its positive effects.
Students will be able to read, write and recite spelling of the assigned word. Students will be able to identify and understand the concept of giving by hearing stories on the subject, writing the word, and making note cards for someone to give as a gift. Students will experience the act of giving and also being given too. This will encourage kindness among all students. Students will understand the intrinsic and extrinsic rewards that result from giving.
