Distance Learning: Shapes and repeated addition

Shapes .mp4

Direct Instruction:

This lesson took place over Google Meet at Alert Level 4 in Auckland, please note that this lesson is just extract of our Google Meet. The lesson was taught to a group of year 3 and 4 learner who have working at curriculum level 2 for Maths. The learning intentions for this lesson were:

  • We are learning to recognise 2D and 3D shapes.

  • We are learning to solve problems using repeated addition and times tables.

This lesson was Co-Planned with Sharisse Scanlan who created the activity for the learners.

Lesson Plan

Reflection: The lesson on the whole went very well. The fact that learners wanted to lesson to keep going and to play a game even after 30 minutes of learning showed that the children were actively engaged and wanted to know more and test their knowledge. I think having many different elements to the lesson and actively using the chat helped to keep children engaged.

Things to note- Due to permissions you may hear the voice of a child but not see them this was done intentionally.
