Reflection: Discourse and Questioning What's Up With All the Sheep? - Section 3: Assessment


Some of the children wanted to know why I didn't include Baa Baa Black Sheep in my poetry booklets--was it because he was a boy sheep?  Was it because he was a black sheep?  Was it because he didn't have a girl that owned him?  So we had a little discussion about why they thought I might not have included him when I was talking about sheep rhymes.  It brought up some interesting conclusions.  The children know that my favorite color is green, so maybe I don't like the color black.  Maybe because I am a girl, that I only want to talk about girl stuff.   But in all reality, it was just because I didn't remember to include this rhyme.  Because of that, the children decided that we should just learn about Baa Baa Black Sheep by himself during the next day's language block. The activities listed are from that result.
