Reflection: ELL Students Discovering Fairytales Day 2 of 2 - Section 3: Recounting Fairytales


If you compare what they did yesterday with what they did today, you can see the recounting of the fairytale improved. My students benefit much from modeling and repetition. That is why I took the time to recount the Three Little Pigs, even though it is a well known story. In taking the time to model it and drawing the details of the story, I feel helped my students draw the details of their stories unto the recounting.

Some students still need to use pictures with their words. That is okay. The pictures are relevant to the task. Overall, this piece is a simple recounting but the students gets to the gist of the story with very good details.

Next, the writing piece, GottheBME, I feel shows a very good recounting of the details of Jack and the Beanstalk. Again, while this may be a familiar story to her, she manages descriptive details and a succinct recounting.

Finally, the piece Somegoodetails gets to the gist of Red Riding Hood. I feel this as well as the rest of my students benefitted from the structure of the Narrative Lecture Notes because their recounting is succinct.

I am glad I extended the lesson to today because today I get to see they understood the task. It helped for them to reread the fairytale. Rereading works wonder for my students.
