Staying on Task Lesson Plan


Teaching time management doesn’t have to be boring – it can be fun! This interactive lesson helps students learn to use their time wisely in class and stay on task. Use with or without the PowerPoint.
*Lesson works as a standalone lesson or as the third in the Learning Skills PowerPoint Bundle (four-lesson unit on learning skills)!*
Engage your students in “The Case of the Super Students”: Ms. Lurnur’s class has gotten off the path towards becoming super students. Students become detectives and investigate what went wrong by tracking the time of two (very off task!) students in her class. Then students sort different activities into “using time wisely”, “not using time wisely”, and “depends” to show Ms. Lurnur’s students how to stay on task!
This lesson was created with 2nd grade in mind and can work for 1st-4th grade depending on the depth of conversation throughout.
Resource includes:
• Written lesson plan with ASCA mindsets/behaviors and CASEL competencies.
• Read aloud stories with color along sheets for showing students how quickly time flies when you’re not using your time wisely.
• Activity sorting cards (with visuals for emerging readers) and sorting mat (see details in thumbnail images).
• Guiding animated PowerPoint in two versions: one as a standalone lesson and one as part one in a unit
• Exit ticket

What others are saying...

“I absolutely LOVE this resource. It’s so interactive and I love the coloring activity to keep students engaged during the narratives about the kids.This lesson is a gem! I regret not buying the entire bundle. :)”

“I love this resource! I have a behavior class I teach with 1st and 2nd graders who have behavior goals on their IEPs. This was very nicely laid out and had a few engaging activities. It’s given me about a week of very good lessons for my group. “

“This pictures for this sort are great. This saved me a lot of time from making my own picture sort cards for guided reading.”
