Reflection: Student Ownership Introduction of Vocabulary Words - Section 1: Mini-Lesson


I have student volunteers lead the reading of the Word Wall everyday. Sometimes I forget how important it is to have students lead part of the class. One week recently the phone rang right when I was about to lead the Word Wall reading. I quickly asked a student to read it while I answered it. I noticed much more engagement by the rest of a class when the student was reading it. It helped me remember that students are the best motivators of their classmates sometimes!

I now always have a student read it and when they get a pronounce a word or root incorrectly, I will just gently correct them in front of the class.
