Reflection: Lesson Planning Interactive Anchor Chart - 6 - Section 2: Independent Practice

 

This is new—I’m the first to say, and I love that the kids are creating their class compilation of ways to represent a number.  This is GOOD STUFF, I think to myself.  But that “light bulb” moment I had the previous week when I was almost beating up on myself, wondering WHY I was creating such a useful tool AFTER our main learning occurred, brought me to this moment.  I am forever questioning myself.  As much as this is sort of a breakthrough moment right now, I know soon enough, I will ask a different question or think of something in a different way or in more depth, and things will change again.  That’s what it’s all about.  When I first started out, it was all I could do to get the lessons delivered.  Now it’s constant reflection, reflection, reflection.  Oh sure, some days, I’m still having those moments where I think to myself, “How am I going to get these goofy little balls of energy to sit and listen to a simple story, even?!” but I keep on pushing.  It’s the trying to make things better that sometimes—definitely not always—gets things better.
