Reflection: ELL Students Sorting Seeds - Section 3: Exploration


Typically in a lesson I introduce the idea or concept with a video or read aloud to get students interested and then there is some sort of small group or partner activity. During that time, I focus in on students who I think may need more support. In this activity, I worked with about 4 different groups and just made sure that they understood how to sort into groups so that they can contribute to the group discussion that comes later. I am really conscious of not just giving them answers or ideas - I want them to still have a rigorous activity and use their own ideas, but to be more supported. Watch as I work with a group!
