Concrete manipulatives to help develop science and math concepts.7. Informal and/or formal assessments that align with objectives.8. Authentic, formative, and/or summative assessments.
**( ONLINE LESSON ANALYSIS FROM MODULE 3)** Subject Science / What is a Dragonfly? 1st Grade
The lesson was tailored to the needs of students in the location of Danbury, CT.
Objective Standards The lesson incorporates the state reading standards for informational text, in addition to speaking and listening standards, writing standards, and language standards. The lesson supports expectations for inclusion of English Language Learners (ELLs) from beginning to advanced levels.

Materials Considered appropriate for the lesson and easy to incorporate to the lesson; however, those materials might only be available at the school where the creator of the lesson teaches. Students can cover the same objectives using materials such as paper and markers or coloring pencils which are available at most schools. Paper copies of Are You a Dragonfly? By: Power Point Presentation about Dragonflies. Activities The lesson incorporates excellent strategies such as cooperative learning for students to learn new vocabulary words, and practice writing by completing a descriptive sentence about dragonflies. Students have to participate in the reading activity. Gather students on the floor in front of the easel containing a piece of chart paper. Divide chart paper into 4 quadrants. Students can be provided the materials to take notes about the material. We are going to write about dragonflies. Using your marker, write what sounds or letters you hear at the beginning of the word, dragonfly. Students will write the word dragonfly on their paper and the teacher will write it on the Four Corners graphic organizer. Students will tell partners what a dragonfly is? Then write in the next quadrant “A dragonfly is an…” on the top right square. Next ask the students to write what sounds or letters that they hear in the word “insect”. Then ask the students to write the word insect they can be assisted by peers if needed. Students are to draw a dragonfly on the box in the top left corner, and a small dragonfly on the bottom quadrant of the organizer. Incorporate vocabulary words using visual material that can help students create their own chart by observing the one created by the teacher which she is helping them understand the material being presented to the class. After the students read the chart as a whole group, explain that they will collaborate through writing to complete the Four Corners graphic organizer by labeling the parts of a dragonfly and by writing a sentence that contains important facts about dragonflies. Students are to identify and label the parts of a dragon fly in their illustrations. Then ask students to complete their charts by writing what a dragonfly is in the right quadrants of their organizer. Assessment The lesson incorporates assessments aligning with the lesson’s objectives. A sample of the complete assignment was also provided as a sample which provides a teacher with an idea of how it should look when completed. For students to be considered achieving their objectives they need to draw the two dragonflies, label the part of a dragonfly, complete the sentence of a dragonfly being an insect and write a sentence about what they learn about dragonflies. Part of their assessment should incorporate reading sentences to other students which can provide them to work cooperatively.
