Reflection: Classroom Setup Vocabulary Routine - Section 3: Practice


Letting the students take control of their vocabulary practice and own their "juicy words" is both a reward and a struggle for them sometimes! It is vital for us to remember that the struggle our students may have can lead to powerful learning; the more they talk, they more they learn!

Con's of letting them practice as I listen:
They might mispronounce something.
They might not say the words at an understandable speed.
^That's it!  And, both of those con's can be easily corrected!

Pro's of letting them practice as I listen:
They show each other how smart they are and build their confidence.
They practice speaking and listening skills.
They practice working in small groups and taking turns.
They have to self-monitor and know when to ask others for help.
They are able to help each other and depend on each other throughout the process.
They learn to respect that each person must play a part in their own learning.
