Reflection: Modeling Gather-Hunt-Plant - Section 3: Extend Understanding


This writing is done in a very guided setting.  Students step through it with me, but they are allowed to pick their own words to complete each sentence.  

I begin by helping students write Wampanoag.  We call out each letter and write each letter one at a time.  I do this to make sure students pay attention to the detail of each letter within a word and how they need each letter to have a complete word.  I also like to reinforce the Common Core Foundational Skills of letters/sounds working together to make words.

Big Idea: Working together helps us to achieve more than we can alone!
