2Educational Objectives: To teach kindergarten children the different seasons of the year. This will help them understand the characteristics of each season. The holidays that are celebrated in each season will be learned as well.This lesson will start out by reading the book, Our Seasons. This book is by Ranida McKneally. This will give them a good idea about what seasons are and the characteristics of each season. I will then show the PowerPoint to the children. I will start the PowerPoint by having a slide that asks the children what the four season are. I will ask this question so I can have a good idea of what the children already know. I will then provide a slide naming all four seasons. The first season I will discuss with the children will be Fall. I will start with Fall since this is the time of the year we are currently in. This will help the children make connections between the PowerPoint and real life. There will be a short quiz at the end of the PowerPoint to assess what each child learned about the four seasons. I will encourage the children to talk during the PowerPoint so we can all share what we know about the seasons. I will document what each child knows about the seasons and plan lessons for the next week based on what they know.Since the children are beginning readers, I will be reading the questions aloud and I will be walking around to help them with words they cannot read.
