Reflection: Continuous Assessment It's Apple Season!! - Section 5: Elaborate


Often times, teachers are presented with those golden moments in the day when an opportunity to extend a lesson well beyond the original outcomes of the lesson come up.  This was one of those moments.  It was not my intent to bring in the compare and contrast or inference language or even practice those skills.  However, both skills lent themselves so beautifully to the practice of pulling evidence from the text that it would have been foolish not to utilize the moment and continue to extend the teaching. 

Fortunately, I always have extra Venn Diagrams on hand and it was easy to continue the lesson and further the learning opportunity.  

I was thrilled that the children were able to see the connections and articulate the conversations as well.
