 Teacher Candidate Name: Teaching Candidate Grade Level: Grade 9 Date: Unit/Subject: Algebra I Instructional Plan Title: Using Tangrams to find Patterns Lesson Summary and Focus: The lesson will focus on the creation of patterns by learners using tangram pieces within a lid of a shoebox. Once they have created the pieces and placed them in the lid, learners will count the number of shapes that are there. For instance, if they have used the triangle as the chosen shapes, they will count the number of triangles that are there in the shoebox lid. (I would have assigned each group a part of the class. Within the groups students would count the number of shapes that they see and name them for that side of the class). Classroom and Student Factors/Grouping: Seating & Classroom Layout Learners will seat in groups when making their patterns. Therefore, the class layout should allow grouping of seats in 5s. Learners with eyesight problem should be seated close to the front of the class. (I would not change anything). Organization The learner should be grouped based on their language abilities. Proficient learners will, therefore, be grouped with those without proficiency in English. National/State Learning Standards: Practice: make sense of the mathematics problem reasoning abstractly and construct viable arguments. Literacy skills:Use multiple reading strategies. Use correct mathematical vocabulary and discuss mathematical ideas. Specific Learning Target(s)/Objectives: Students will be required to: create a pattern by using tangrams inside a shoebox lid. count the number of shapes created using tangrams in a shoebox lid. Academic Language Vocabulary -Squares -Triangles -Rectangles To teach these vocabularies, I will use labels with names for learners to pin on the right shape. Resources, Materials, Equipment, and Technology: -Reading text: Sir Cumfrance Series by Wayne Geechan -Enough pictures of shapes -One big image with various shapes to be hung on the wall -Labels having names of forms -Ruler -Multiple shapes cut out from cardboard
