The Illinois Early Learning Project is excited to offer a new resource for teachers. We now have available several sample lesson plans that correspond to the 2013 Illinois Early Learning and Development Standards (IELDS). Keep in mind that these sample lesson plans are just suggestions of ways that teachers can address the 2013 IELDS.
Each lesson targets a specific benchmark and includes the following components:
These sample lesson plans have been designed to meet the following benchmarks:
Please contact IEL Project staff if you have any questions about the adapted lesson plans.
These lesson plans were supported, in part, by a leadership grant from the Office of Special Education Programs (Project BLEND, H325D110037) and a grant from the Illinois State Board of Education for the Illinois Early Learning Project at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (D6548). Opinions reflect those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect those of the granting agencies.
As you scroll through the HTML version of the 2013 Illinois Early Learning and Development Standards, look for the words "Sample Lesson Plan" next to selected benchmarks, indicating that a sample lesson plan accompanies that benchmark.
