Reflection: Modeling Look Who's Talking - Section 3: Partner Work


Now that this lesson is over I realize that I needed to look more into what is Little Bear trying to say.  What is his idea, view, and message. I did not understand the standard when I first started teaching this unit.   The Little Bear is saying that he is going to have a party and cook for his friends even if his mother is not there.  He thinks she may have forgot his birthday.  This is really what the point of view of Little Bear is and this is what I needed to try to convey to my class.  Then the cat, duck, and hen are saying happy birthday by coming over and eating soup. Mother bear says happy birthday with a surprise cake. But, the point of view is the feeling that is causing Little Bear to do what he does.  In future lessons I will teach my students to not simply list  who is talking, but to look at how the character feels and how that affects their action. This helps them understand the point of view. But, really the first grade standard is to identify who is talking, but I really try to take it deeper and use some higher order thinking.  Knowing that Little Bear is tell the story is sufficient for first grade. 

I have a video sharing an extension (Extension Partner Work).
