Reflection: Advanced Students Macaroni and Peas--Identifying Commas and Periods - Section 3: Assessment


This is a lesson that I like to do because it differentiates for the varying abilities of the children that I teach.  At the lower end of the range, students that struggle with reading can echo the reading and use a paper that already has the punctuation marked, so that the children are basically matching the macaroni and peas to the punctuation on the page.  Children that are at a higher ability group for reading can start to use the punctuation to help them with fluency.
