Explain how you will differentiate assessments for each of the following groups: English language learners (ELL): They will have the questions read to them in a small group setting. Students with special needs: They will have the same as the ELL students. Students with gifted abilities: These students have the option of writing all about pumpkins. Early finishers (those students who finish early and may need additional resources/support): They will read quietly to self at their desk or in the quiet corner. Time Needed 10 minutes Extension Activity and/or Homework I will send home how to make a pumpkin pie activity they can complete at home. I will also send the favorite pumpkin treat home with students, so they can interview their family members. Time Needed This is optional. If the students complete it they can bring it in and can share with the group. Reflection When back in whole group I plan to do a Think-Pair-Share so the students can share and receive feedback from peers.
BENCHMARK ASSESSMENT 7 Exit Ticket students will write one thing they learned during this lesson. Assess student learning with the feedback of the think-pair-share and the exit tickets to see which students understand, kind of understand, or need more help. I got the worksheets from Teacher Pay Teachers. I did some of these activities with kindergarten students last year and made a fun day and month that was all about pumpkins.

Short response Students will fill in the life cycle of a pumpkin without the words listed in a worksheet. For my students who need extra support I will give them the worksheet with the words supplied. (See attached file). I will also give my students a worksheet that they have to fill in the next number in the sequence. It will also have pumpkins going from biggest to smallest. They will have to pick the pumpkin that fits the sequence in that line. Essay Response The students will be given a sheet with a number from 0-25. They will have to write what they would do with that many pumpkins. After I have looked at each student’s work, I will turn it into a fun classroom book. For my ELL, Learning Disabled, and below grade level students, I will provide them with supports. For example, the para or myself, will dictate
