Reflection: Lesson Planning Over and Under the Snow - Section 3: Assessment


When I wrote this lesson, I thought it would take about 30 minutes to complete, but as I actually implemented the lesson, I realized that I had not allowed for enough time.  Since there are children that struggle still with sounding out words, they required more assistance and the whole project took them longer.  I wanted the children to have time to share and retell their stories to one another, but we ran out of time.  Fortunately, my students have "book boxes" (magazine file boxes that each child has in which to store their language arts resources) and they were able to store their books to review during the next day's literacy block time.

If you should decide to make this a two-day lesson, I have included the author's website and an Over and Under the Snow Reader's Response Page.
