Reflection: Intervention and Extension Why is Mary So Contrary? - Section 2: Procedure


Because we spent so much time on this rhyme, I thought that I would like to provide the students with an additional activity to show off what they have learned.  This pocket chart activity gives students a chance to read and organize the rhyme into the correct order. They love to show off their successes and I make a point of making a big deal out of the work they have done.  Before I set all the materials over in the poetry station, I model the correct way to set up the rhyme in the pockets.  I give the various pieces out to the students and then, as we recite the rhyme, the children come up and put the pieces in order.
