Math Co-Teaching Lesson Demonstration (1st Grade)
I co-taught a first grade math lesson to other pre-service teachers on double addition facts. The demonstration focused on becoming comfortable with and learning how to teach with another teacher. This lesson incorporated a variety of manipulatives, which helped differentiate instruction for the different levels of students in the classroom. The lesson began with a song that activated the students' minds, engaged them in the lesson, and introduced them to the concept of a double addition fact. In the lesson, the students created their own double addition fact picture cards, that were based on pre-made picture cards that were modeled by the teachers. At the end of the lesson, students were given a math box to complete for homework that reviewed what they would have learned the day before, today, as well as introduced the next lesson concept.
