CCCTI Lesson Plan Feedback
Sat Jun 20, 2015 12:18

I really enjoyed your lesson plan and the description of the class and procedures. If I were to walk into your classroom after reading this lesson I would know exactly what to expect from the room and the seating charts. I think it is so important when encouraging writing and elaborating that the topic is connected to the students' interest and experiences, and you incorporated both of them. I also liked how you took their ideas and allowed them to see them on the board as words and sentences.

I have two suggestions/comments. Like I said, I like how the teacher would write on the board, but a big part of writing time is having the students work on putting their thoughts onto paper which also works on handwriting. The only other thing I would be careful of is your pairing. Sometimes having the highest working with the lowest can cause the lowest to take a back seat while the higher achieving student does the work. I have also seen the highest get upset when the lowest cannot keep up or participate. While they are still young and this might not be a problem depending on the students, I would be careful in paring.

      I love how the students have been to a local zoo recently and the teacher takes from that experience and interest in animals to base the lesson off of. I also like how the board has a visual reminder ... more
