Reflection: Shared Expectations Yeh-Shen, the Chinese Cinderella: Day 2 of Cinderella Unit - Section 2: Shadow Puppets


     As I watch my students work and later on see their final product, I realize that their creativity is endless.  Some puppets were very detailed and some were plainly decorated.  However, the students had fun creating them and remained engaged throughout the lesson.  The only thing that I should have stressed more is to clean up afterwards.  My students are on the messy side when it comes to working on projects.
