Reflection: Flexibility Long Vowels & Limericks-Looking at Poetry - Section 4: Teacher's Turn


You may notice that the powerpoint in this video looks a little different than the one you can download.  I tweaked the limericks in the powerpoint to make the rhyme better and have more vowel variety, but I forgot I had already uploaded it to Better Lesson. The one that you download is correct, but if you're watching the videos of my teaching, you may notice a difference.  My kids certainly did. It was great to see them paying attention and catching the errors - it keeps them on their toes!
