Reflection: Lesson Planning Busy Bees - Section 3: Closing


Undoubtably, I needed to consider all reading levels when choosing the appropriate texts. I chose just below grade level because I wanted to avoid frustration. 4 to 5 people are at a table team and it worked really well. The larger print allowed good visibility when sitting in teams and sharing. My below grade level readers were able to keep up with the time limit because of the pictures, captions and mixed level readers in each table team. Good stuff! There is a multitude of levels of reading on the subject of bees.
