Reflection: Coherence Jam Jam Jam Figure Out The Rubber Band Band Day 2 - Section 2: Applying Our Knowledge


My goal was to assess what students learned from yesterday through writing. But, in order to get them to really write well, I knew that they needed to experience and review the concepts again through discussion and learning more facts from the video. Yesterday, I allowed them to discover and guided their understanding. Today, I was looking for misconceptions they may have developed or still had. I was hoping that Ms. Frizzle really would help me out with supporting any misconceptions.

I realized they had NEVER really played with sound. No one takes piano lessons nor plays an instrument yet. 4th grade is the grade that we start band and I kept thinking what an advantage they now have because they will enter band with understanding what sound is and some information about pitch and dynamics. So, the review needed to be constructed with first allowing them to play a bit, and then start focus questions about transfer of energy and what affects it.
