Direct Instruction Lesson Plan Format

Date: 10/22/14

Grade Level: Grade 1

Target Students: Whole Class

Students will understand how to tell time using a digital clock.
Its useful for students to know how to tell time. This is foundational information for
students to be able to tell time. It is especially important that students know how to read a
digital clock, because that is the most common form in todays society. This is also the
foundational lesson before students learn how to read analog clocks.
Common Core State and/or NC Essential Standards:
Tell and write time in hours and half-hours using analog and digital clocks.
ISTE.NETS.S Standards
5. Digital Citizenship: Students understand human, cultural, and societal issues related to
technology and practice legal and ethical behavior.
b. Exhibit a positive attitude toward using technology that supports collaboration, learning,
and productivity.
6. Technology Operations and Concepts: Students demonstrate a sound understanding of
technology concepts, systems, and operations.
a. Understand and use technology systems.
Lesson Objectives (Behavioral and/or Performance Objective):
Students will
Students will be able to identify the different parts of a digital clock and
able to:
understand what they mean in relation to time. They will be able to tell
What, How,
the difference between the hour and minute sections on a digital clock
and to What
and have a basic understanding of the difference between A.M. and P.M.
which will be built upon in future lessons.
Student Friendly Objective:
Students will learn as a class and in pairs/groups the parts of a clock and how to tell time.
Essential Question:
What are the parts of a clock? What do these parts do? How do you tell what time it is?
Smartboard/SmartNote/Power Point presentation (simple explanation of clock parts)
Tablets (preferably two per pair of students)
PhotoTouch Telling Time app (free make sure settings only include oclocks)
Post-it Notes

Headphones (optional)
Worksheets (empty digital clock faces)

5 min

Lesson Activities
Introduction to the Lesson:
How many of you know what time you have to wake up in the morning?
What time do you have to go to bed? (Let a few students answer) Do you
think being able to tell these times are important? (Raise hands yes or no
tell me why) Right, because if we cant tell time then we might be late to
things or places we need to go to.
Teacher Input/Modeling:

10 min

I will give my presentation on the SmartBoard. I will explain the difference

between the hour and minute parts of reading a digital clock. Since they are
first graders notes will not be required while presentation is given. Instead
repetition throughout my lecture will be vital in ensuring that students grasp
the concepts. (Presentation attached to email)
Guided Practice:

7 min

I will then bring the students to the carpet and demonstrate how to play the
game on the tablets. I will show them how to get to the game and how to
start it. I will go through several problems with them as a group so that
they can see what they will be doing and the appropriate way to answer the
questions the game asks. Additionally, I will point out how to repeat the
question so that if they dont hear it the first time they dont have to guess
for the correct answer.
Independent Practice:

10 min

Students will then get into pairs so that they can collaborate on what they
think the best answers are. They will be sharing an iPad. This will
hopefully help reduce the amount of random guessing that students would
do on their own (hopefully is the key word). Emphasis will be made on
working as a team and making sure they are not guessing when the iPads
are distributed. I will encourage them to complete as many levels as they
can, but 10 at the minimum. (one student writes down the level theyre
on, on a post-it note and the other chooses the answer on the iPad these
instructions will be given during guided practice)

Closure of the Lesson:

8 min

I will say 3 oclock and ask students to write that on their sheet full of the image
below. I will give them six in total and based on how well they do on that will tell
me where I should go in my next lesson. (image url)

Evaluation/Assessment of Student Learning

(Evidence Included)
During the lesson I will be walking around the classroom, answering questions, and
making sure that students are on staying on task while on the tablets. I will also be asking
students questions throughout their independent practice to see how well they understand
the content.
I will grade the closing worksheets and based on the comprehension they show through
that activity I will base my following lessons.
Extension of Lesson:
This lesson will be expanded upon in the following lesson with analog clocks which are
much more complex. Digital clock examples will be given and the students will need to be
able to relate those times to the analog versions. This will be practiced in multiple ways
in future lessons.
Plans for Individual Differences
Early Finishers:
Students that finish early can get back on the iPads and continue their practice.
Late Finishers:
Students that finish late can complete the rest of their levels the following lesson. However, I
will most likely wait to move on until all of the groups have completed 10 levels
Depending on the students that I have in my classroom I would adjust the curriculum to meet their
-low students: I could pair them with a higher level student that I know will help them try to solve

the answers; (if available) I could group my lower students together and have them work with an
-high students: I could pair the higher students together so that they accomplish more levels and
if they still find the work easy I can change the settings within the app to include more complex
time examples
English Language Learners:
Since the app uses sounds to signify incorrect answers ELL students will be able to learn from
their mistakes in order to find the correct answers if they dont completely understand what is
being said. Also the app has a repeat button if they dont catch all the words that the speaker says
the first time.
21st Century Skills:
Students will be using tablets to play the app. Additionally, the students are will be learning how
to read digital clocks which are present on most electronics and will be a vital skill throughout
their lives. Since they will be working in pairs they will be learning how to work as a team which
is vital for students to learn.
Discuss how you address at least two of these learning styles in your lesson: Visual (spatial),
Verbal (linguistic), Physical (kinesthetic/tactile), Aural (auditory-musical), Logical (mathematical), Social
(interpersonal), Solitary (intrapersonal):

Spatial- Visual learners will benefit from the Smartboard Presentation and using the tablet.
Aural- Auditory learners will benefit from hearing the lesson that I present and the app that they
will be using requires sound to complete the tasks.
Social- Interpersonal learners will enjoy working as a class and in pairs with the iPads
Physical- Kinesthetic/Tactile learners will like working with the tablets as they get to physically
choose their answers.
Logical- Mathematical learners will thrive in this lesson as this requires understanding of numbers

Student Teacher Signature

(I say levels because the app doesnt number the questions thats why I want the students to
keep track of their work)
