Reflection: Performance Tasks Learning the Difference Between Common and Proper Nouns - Section 3: Independent Practice


I have analyzed some of my student's work in detail.  It is listed for you here Student Work Common and Proper.docx.  Based on what my student's were doing, I could tell that I needed to offer my students more independent practice opportunities.  I think the lesson went very well for an introduction to the skill.  I went back and thought about where else I could incorporate this skill into the school day, now that they knew about common and proper nouns.  I decided that I could have students continue to practice this skill during independent seat work time as I was teaching reading groups and also use this skill in our literacy centers.

I also went hunting on the internet for activities that were already made - I want to make sure I am working smarter and not harder.  This list of activities I am about to share with you are all free activities that I've found on Teachers Pay Teachers.  I encourage you to use these in your literacy centers and as seat work in your classroom as well.
