Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Punctuation Practice with Periods - Section 2: Procedure


I ended up playing the game in the hallway as we had an unscheduled bathroom break.  On this particular day, I had a more than usual number of students that need to use the facilities at the same time, so we continued the lesson in the hallway, and it worked out great.  By having the children react to my sentences while standing in line, I could really see who was understanding the concept of the game versus the children who were copying their friends.  I knew then who I should make sure to visit while they were working.
