This is a second grade lesson that I taught in my practicum placement. I started off by modifying an already made lesson from the Department of Education’s website and put it into the VCU lesson plan format where I addressed different areas that my cooperating teacher wanted me to focus on. After teaching that lesson, I went back and modified the lesson again, but this time making it more inquiry based than it was was previously. I have also included reflections I wrote for each part of the process. As a teacher, I will have to take lessons that have already been created and adapt them to fit my teaching style and my students.
