Reflection: Routines and Procedures Sounds Like the Sea to Me! - Section 4: Demonstrate Skills and Assessment


As I walked around my classroom during this lesson, it was so fun to listen in on my students' conversations.  Many students were right on track, and talking about the words and what they might mean in context.  However, there was a student pair that was talking about other topics, about the ocean, but still not quite on the vocabulary as intended.  During situations like this, I think it's really important to be sure students have "learned" how to talk to each other.  At the start of the year, we learn about how to listen while someone else is talking, how to take turns talking and wait until someone is finished, and also, how to stay focused on the topic.  I actually teach direct lessons on this!  I think it's worth while, because times like these are bound to happen, but, when they do, I can ask my students to remind me of what talking together looks like and sounds like, and that always helps with redirection!
