Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines The Life Cycle of a Butterfly Day 1 of 2 - Section 6: Independent Writing: Explaining the Butterfly Cycle


How did my students do with this writing assignment? To start, in the writing piece, Didn't Finish Explaining the Buttterfly Cycle, the writer completed a couple of thoughts. It shows good spelling and sentence structure. There is good usage of time order words. I am glad this students walked away with some new knowledge, but I wish the student had finished the task.

Next, in the writing piece, Explaining The Butterfly Cycle, shows some very good information about the life cycle. This one also shows good usage of time order words. It flowed very well and contained some good use of vocabulary words.

After that, in the writing piece, Explaining the Butterfly Cycle, the writer does an excellent job in explaining the cycle in her special way. She uses the word metamorphosis. Impressive! She uses good vocabulary words as she explains the process.

Then, the writing piece, Explaining The Life Cycle, shows simple sentences but good usage of vocabulary words and a good job explaining the process. Again, there is good usage of time order words too.

I am happy to see the vocabulary my students have used in their writing. It's satisfying as a teacher working with English Language Learners to see their vocabulary expanding.
