Reflection: Station Rotation The Gingerbread Boy versus the Gingerbread Girl - Section 3: Assessment


Later in the day, the children participate in literacy stations that review information that has already been taught.  Since kindergarten children learn at differing rates, I don't want to limit myself to teaching an activity once and then moving on, but with so many curricular areas to cover, I find that the best way to reteach and review is during our station time.  One of the simple activities that I use is a roll the die game of "decorating" a gingerbread boy or a girl cut-out.   Part of the student's responsibilities is to make the character look distinguishable as a boy or girl.  Since gender specific characteristics do not necessarily hold true in today's society.  I really leave it up to the students to determine and explain the characteristics to me.
