## Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Spaghetti and Meatballs - Section 2: Explore

Spaghetti and Meatballs for All is such an engaging book. Students want to see the pictures as well as hear the story. The document camera served better as an aid for the read aloud. Students were able to see the illustrations to give them a visual for what was happening in the story. That visual helped them answer questions without having to strain and rearrange to see. It also added an element of fun to the activity.
