Reflection: Adjustments to Practice And what happened next? - Section 4: Independent practice


The video shows one of my students attempting to use the puppets to retell the story. You can see that he isn't using them to retell the story, but just moving them randomly. Making the paper puppets was engaging, and at the time I needed to have them occupied with and engaging and easy task because I needed to do individual assessments; however, I would not use these paper bag puppets again for retelling. Instead, I would let them make little cut out figures that they can use to act out the story at their desk by themselves or with a partner.
