Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Tie It Up With Transition Words To Write a Story! - Section 1: Materials


I chose this book because I consider it to be a 'classic' book that most kids have read.  It's also a great book to use as a reference for later discussions on topics such as complaining, empathy, etc.

That being said, although it was on a list of books with good transition words and did have great sequencing, it did not have a lot of transition words.  So, I decided to use it anyway and improvise. Since I read it due to the high lexile, I added words from the transition words list, which was nice because I could pick and choose and get a good variety. Here's a teacher demonstration of reading.

  Adjustments to Practice: Great story, but it didn't have a lot of transition words...
