Lesson Sketch for EDT 313

Individual completing this lesson plan:


Emma Burkholder
Lesson title: Move Your Body!
Date that lesson was taught: Lesson not taught
Lesson will teach: Toddlers (16-36 months)
Guidelines/Standardsin2Domains:
Ohio Development Guidelines and Standards- Older Toddler (16-36 months)
1. Physical Well Being: Body Awareness Name, point to and move body parts when asked.
2. Physical Well Being: Physical Activity- Participate in active physical play and structured activities
requiring spontaneous and instructed body movements.
3. Motor Development: Large Muscle (balance and coordination) - Use a variety of non-locomotors body
movements (hands in the air, turn around, stand on one foot, etc.) during play.
4. Language/ Communication: Early Literacy- The child will learn the foundations for
listening, speaking, reading and writing.
Instructional objectives:
The student will be able to:
1. The student will be able to listen as the instructor reads the book and actively participate in the
actions the book discusses (such as kick your feet like a kangaroo or jump like bunny).
2. The student will dance to the song and preform the actions it specifics such as pointing to head,
shoulders knees and toes as they dance with others.
Experiences: Describe authentic (real life, hands-on not representational) materials and enticing/ creative experiences in
which children are actively engaged. Safety should be addressed if warranted.

Materials:
From Head to Toe by Eric Carle book
Head Shoulders Knees and Toes Song
Procedure:
The teacher can hook the students by reading a book to them first to allow for a literacy aspect of the
lesson. The students will show how they understand and have the ability to follow directions and take the
actions in the book. The teacher can then play the song head shoulders knees and toes in order to connect
the book with the song. The lesson focuses on body parts and body movements. The book emphasizes that
animals that the toddlers recognize move as well. The body movement incorporates gross motor activity as
they involve their whole body dancing to the song.
Steps:

1. Hook the students by reading the book From Head to Toe


2. Ask the students to follow the animals in the book.
3. As you read, do the actions along with the animals so that the students will mirror the actions as well.
4. When the book is done, explain that since the animals can move, we can move too!
5. Direct the students to stand up and spread out.
6. Play the song Head shoulders knees and toes and let the students try to explore the song and dance to
the beat.
7. On the second verse, do the correct movements to allow the students to follow.
8. Continue with the song and its directions and at the end allow for free dance play.
Total Lesson time: 20 minutes
Safety:
The children need to be in a big enough space that is open and gives them each enough room to move. The
students need to be spaced apart in order for them not to touch one another as they do the movements.
Evidence of student learning:
I will utilize the following chart to check off when the students complete the student objectives. The chart
will allow me to determine how each student is doing, and how the class as a whole is doing. The chart will
be easy to use and fill out as the movements are being done.

Students with disabilities:


The lesson can be altered for students with disabilities by allowing them to alter the movements. Giving
them more time may be needed as well. Depending on the disability the movements can be restricted to just
certain parts of the body that they may have more control over such as arms or hands.
