Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge The Hello, Goodbye Window - Section 1: Wam Up


I believe that many strategies added to the success of my lesson today.  I believe the one strategy that made the most impact was the CCSS of engaging my students in the warm up discussion  By talking about their experiences, I was able to lay the foundation for my lesson.  They may not have had experiences with a window, but they understand the feelings the little girl had about her Grandparents.  They have also had some experiences with a window.  I think the book made sense to them and was easy and fun for them to relate to, thus making the writing important.  I love it when connections are made and they are all proud of their work.
