Reflection: Routines and Procedures Introduction: Reading the Emotion - Section 4: Collaborative Activity


I have taught this lesson many times over the years; however this is the first time I taught it through the Common Core lens.  This was the first time that I incorporated the collaborative activity in a lesson to make it more interactive.  I noted in my personal reflections that it was difficult for some of my students to cut the responses on the activity sheet.  The next time I teach this lesson I will enlarge the areas to be cut or cut them myself ahead of time because some of my students' fine motor skills have not developed enough to cut small pieces.
