Lesson Plan of Process and Procedures
Students` Learning Outcomes
- Follow sequence in a simple procedure or a picture map.
- Follow instructions in short school, public notices or signs with visuals.
- Read simple keys/legends on picture maps.
Information for Teachers
- Introduce the concept of sequencing of events by using the words ‘first’, ‘then’, ‘after that’, in your conversation with them. For example, at home-time you may ask them, ‘first you pack your bags, next you get up and push your chair in, and then you line up to leave the class. Finally, you switch off the lights and fans as you leave.
- Make sure that the students are familiar with basic prepositions (up, down, under, on, in, behind) and direction words (left, right, across) before teaching this lesson.
- Start your lesson by recapping/revising these concepts.
- A legend is another word for a key. A map legend explains the symbols found in a map.
