Reflection: Lesson Planning Kenny & the Dragon Day Four: Chapter 6 & Chapter 7 - Section 5: Recording Abridged Summaries


You'll notice that I recorded all of my students abridged summaries after we finished our study of Kenny & the Dragon.  I'm going to change this up for next year and record two summaries each day. I think this would work better because it spreads out a big job over many days.  Also, when you record, the classroom has to be quiet, and when you record many in a row, that is a long time to be quiet :)  I also think it would be easier to grade two recordings and illustrations a day, rather than the whole class at the end.  However, if you notice I have the students practice reciting their summaries orally during our daily review.  Students will need practice before they are recorded for the digital presentation.
