Another story will be ready to the students named, Community Helpers from A to Z, by Bobbie Kalman. At the conclusion of the story, we will discuss what pupils have heard and what new information they have learned about community helpers. The main community helper that our class will focus on, on day two is the Mail-carrier and their job. I will then demonstrate how to create a letter. Then as a class we and will build mailboxes. Learners will construct a letter to a fellow classmate of their choice. Scholars will then place their letter in the main mailbox at the front of the class. I will then have two students sort the mail. Then I three students deliver the mail into the mailboxes that the students have constructed. Learners will be graded based on their creativity and development of their letters and how well the followed the directions of the staff. The third days of the unit, learners will once again express their understanding of the lesson plan. Their knowledge will be tested on images that will be projected on the SMARTBoard.

At the completion of this activity learners will choose a community helper and complete a writing assignment on the helper. Since each students’ abilities varies some students are allow to express their written assignment as an illustration, where they will illustrate a picture as an alternative of writing their response. Also, I will have some students use speak-to-text to complete their written assignment. The learners’ grades will be based on their knowledge of the helper they choose. The pupils will also receive a grade for their knowledge about the helpers throughout class activities. On the fourth day of the unit, learners will validate their knowledge of the unit as a whole. I will once again reread one of the two books that were read to them earlier in the week. The students will then have a group activity where they will construct a community. There will be three groups of two students in each group. I will pair the students together depending on their learning ability and behaviors, so that students who have stronger abilities can the weaker students with the assignment. It is necessary for learners to engage with each other irrespective of their ability. Pupils will choose how they will each contribute to their group activity. Some scholars can illustrate a building and a helper, while others can use pictures from magazines and the internet. Learners will be graded on contribution, on individual work, as well as obtain a group assignment grade.
