Reflection: ELL Students Mr. Putter & Tabby Pour the Tea Day 1 of 3 - Section 3: Whole Group Interactive Recounting


This is the first year for my students with the CCSS. Recounting is a new term and process for my students. In teaching English Language Learners, I need to keep in mind how to best meet their needs. Repetition, visuals,and chunking work very well in developing their conceptual understanding of ideas. That is why I created the large template on the construction paper and used the drawings and words to recount. I explained that recounting can be in written or done orally. Recounting requires a sequence of events. After I finished with the drawings for the first chapter I modeled the recounting from the beginning of the chapter to the end. My students benefit much from this.

I will continue to use these different strategies to build language for my students.

This is me reflecting deeper on my lesson:
