Reflection: Student Grouping Cookie's Week, Another Way to Retell - Section 2: Hook


I found that the children gravitated to the same children as they had in other activities.  There were always one or two children who seemed left out, so I made some special provisions for them to "fit" into a group.  Letting the children pick their own groups really established a pecking order, and reminded me to change up the way that groups are chosen--sometimes by student choice and sometimes by my control.  I think the next time I would set up the groupings so that there was a balance of abilities in each group.
