Modifications


I used a lot of shared reading activities with poetry about homes. I also played a lot of games and we sang songs to help them remember the parts of a house. I also played a group game in which they worked together to identify the names of the furniture with pictures.

Instructional Objectives


Students Will:

  • Learn the names of different types of homes
  • Learn names of rooms in a house.
  • Be able to name the furniture in each room.

Technology Integration

The children used KidPix to draw a room with furniture. They were also able to look up different types of homes and furniture pieces.


Assessment


I would conference with my students to see if they understood the lessons. I would also check to see if they were learning the vocabulary during share time.


Tips for Teachers


Your students will love this unit. They were so excited to recite the poetry and identify the different rooms and furniture in the house. They also enjoyed doing the art project. If I could have had more time, I would have extended the unit with more activities.
