Reflection: Checks for Understanding Now you'll remember - Section 2: Sketch and practice


When I told the class they were going to retell the story, there were quite a few panicked faces, so I asked if they wanted to listen to the story again; at least half the class raised their hand, so I read it to them again. I noticed that many were manipulating the props as I reread the book. I was glad to see this because it indicated that the props were indeed helping many remember.
