Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Roll, Ramp, Slope, and Slide! - Section 1: Introduction


I always think it is important to develop a conceptual understanding with the students as they are likely to meet with success when they go to work on the assignment. I really enjoy the discussions with the students as it allows me to get a glimpse as to what they are thinking. If the students are thinking to literally, have missed the point of what I am trying to do, or have absolutely no idea what we are talking about, then I can alter my instructional approach to get them back on track. 

I do like trying to include visuals with our introduction so that my visual learners (I am one too) are able to create a picture in their mind of what we are discussing. I also usually like to include a physical activity too, whether it be a song or an action, so my kinesthetic learners get "woken up."
