Reflection: Student Feedback Predict Using Characters' Actions and Rhythm - Section 4: The Students Take a Turn


When we completed the 'predict and verify' worksheets, many of the students needed help so I did use some prompting.   I had some students who were more independent and did not need help. 

For the students who needed prompting, their answers were usually correct. However, for kids who worked independently, their mistakes became a point for instruction. Here's an example of a student's worksheet. I would always prefer that my students make mistakes because those mistakes give me feedback into their thinking, and the discussion that follows benefits all kids.
