Reflection: Routines and Procedures Slinky Spelling - Section 3: Introduction to Students


Routines and procedures are extremely vital to slinky spelling; if I want students to be able to do this independently, they must have guided practice first!

In the video attached, you can see an initial practice session with slinkies.  I do this in small group so I can make sure students are picking up and setting down the slinkies at the appropriate times.  One thing I would change, in reference to this video, would be to tell the student to stop playing with the slinky on her pencil.  I didn't do this at this time; however, I did pay attention to her mannerisms when following the routines fof picking up and using the slinkies properly.
