In this engaging reading and writing lesson plan all about following directions, young learners will be challenged to listen closely, read carefully, and remain focused throughout different activities. First, children will learn the importance of listening and following directions by playing several rounds of the game Simon Says. Then learners will get to practice following directions in nonfiction texts as they complete a word puzzle, following steps in order to arrive at the correct answer. This lesson builds important life skills in first graders that can be applied at home, in school, and everywhere in between!
Students will be able to follow instructions by utilizing their listening comprehension skills.
