    This is actually how we plan our lesson for the week. I teach 2nd grade.

    1. Where are our students coming from?
    We spiral in. We build background knowledge. We have seen the 1st grade standards.

    2. Where are our students headed?
    We establish the objective, teach the vocabulary (if not already known), and scaffold on to what students should already know. For instance, in 1st grade students should know the value of coins. We review that, but we move on to counting the money.

    3. Anticipate what students will do.
    We anticipate the mistakes or misunderstandings so we can try to avoid those.
