Lesson Plan: Text Reading about Weather

Grade: Primary 3 Subject: English Language Arts Topic: Weather

Introduction: - Begin the lesson by asking the students about their favorite weather and why they like it. - Explain that today, they will be learning about different types of weather through reading a text. - Share the learning objectives: to read and understand a text about weather, identify different types of weather, and use descriptive words to talk about weather.

Lesson Outline:

  1. Pre-Reading Activity:
    • Show a short video about different types of weather (e.g., https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3XqfYtJz7jo).
    • Engage the students in a class discussion about the different types of weather they observed in the video.
    • Introduce and discuss some descriptive words related to weather (e.g., sunny, rainy, windy, cloudy, snowy).
  2. Reading the Text:
    • Provide each student with a copy of the weather text (e.g., a short passage or a story about weather).
    • Read the text aloud as a class, emphasizing pronunciation and fluency.
    • Encourage students to follow along silently as you read.
    • Ask students to underline or highlight any unfamiliar words they come across.
  3. Questioning:
    • Engage the students in a discussion about the text using the following questions: a. What is the text about? b. Can you identify any different types of weather mentioned in the text? c. What descriptive words were used to describe the weather? d. How does the weather affect people’s activities?
  4. Assessment:
    • Distribute a worksheet (e.g., https://www.teachstarter.com/au/teaching-resource/weather-word-search/) to assess students’ understanding of weather-related vocabulary.
    • Monitor students’ progress and provide assistance as needed.
  5. Differentiation:
    • For students who need additional support, provide a simplified version of the text with pictures or visual aids.
    • For advanced students, provide an additional worksheet with more challenging weather-related vocabulary or ask them to write a short paragraph describing their favorite weather.
  6. Plenary:
    • Recap the main points discussed during the lesson.
    • Ask students to share one thing they learned about weather today.
    • Conclude the lesson by encouraging students to observe and describe the weather they experience outside the classroom.
