Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Y to i - Section 3: Partner Work


This model shows one example (student work) which is proficient. This is my only example of proficient work. The phonics progression for Common Core by Sopris West (first grade reading foundations) states that they do not have to master spelling these words until second grade, but it should be introduced in first grade.  That is a good thing because it is really hard for them.  It is going to take a lot of reading and word work to master changing y to i. 

I needed to add more words and ask them to write a sentence with some of the words. There were not enough.  It would have helped the lesson if I added some words that had unusual spelling pattern but the similar sounds.  This would make the students focus on hearing sounds in words.

I feel that there should be some extended writing and application in each lesson.  This lesson only had sorting.  It would have engaged much higher order thinking skills if they write a sentence.
