Literacy Lesson plan

Discussion in 'Primary' started by nita61, Nov 13, 2011.

  1. Can someone pleae help. I am a student on a first placement. Pl advise how my literacy lesson can be broken down in timed steps. How much time should I allocate each task in the hour long lesson.
  2. Haven't your university or placement school advised you about this? If not, I would ask them.
    In my Literacy lessons, I spend 5 minutes doing warm up games, which focus on sentence level work, about 15minutes introducing the lesson, including interactive teaching (whiteboards, talking partners, etc.) This is usually a little bit longer if I'm modelling writing, particularly when using ideas the children are generating. Then they usually have 30-35 minutes for the main task and a 5 minute plenary.
    We also have 45 minutes each day to focus on spelling, handwriting and guided reading.

    I can confirm that universities skip over the important details in their haste to have you memorise Maslow's Hierarchy and other things you never end up needing to know.
