Reflection: Grappling with Complexity The Grouchy Lady Bug - Section 2: Reading the Story

 

The complexity of this lesson is the vocabulary.  Many of my ELL students do not know the what these animals are and what they are called.  Talking about each animal and drawing them helps them to comprehend what they are and learn the vocabulary.  If there weren't so many animals, it would have been fun to see a video about each one.  I would love to have my students act out the story.  I think that would help with story retell and vocabulary.
