Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Rain is Falling - Section 3: Assessment


Spring is a rainy time here in Michigan, so the children have a lot of experience with the rain. Later in the week, we revisit the ideas about what we think about the rain and we write about these thoughts in our journals.  The journals we use have word prompts at the bottom, so some children just need to select a word, but there are children that will decide on their own ideas from experiences and will write about those thoughts.
