This assignment requires you to select a children’s picture book, for which you will write a brief synopsis, to be used as the stimulus to develop two 50-minute lesson plans for one grade of your choice, either kindergarten (early stage 1), year 1 (stage 1), or year 2 (stage 1). Both lessons must clearly build on each other, and you must describe how the book is to be used in each lesson. One of your lessons must employ digital technology for rich use by the students. You will also write a 500-word justification, justifying your pedagogical decisions and how your planned lessons reflect best practice in the teaching of mathematics.
