Reflection: Routines and Procedures Initial Blends Practice - Section 6: Daily Practice


Videos take a little extra time and they certainly can take extra planning (to avoid commercials, etc); however, videos can add a lot to a Kindergarten lesson, such as this one.  Kids sometimes can get bored reviewing the same foundational skills lessons over and over- they don't realize we are trying to build their stamina and fluency!  So, I like to make sure that their repeated practice is full of fun whenever possible! 

Showing my students a video about initial blends does 3 things:
1- It gets them engaged in the lesson.
2- It gets them up and moving so they enjoy themselves.
3- It provides me a chance to look and listen to students and informally assess their responses.

A video is a win/win situation for our classroom and I think the aspect of learning that I can tap into with engaging videos far outweighs the time or planning I spend searching for the perfect ones!
