Reflection: Lesson Planning "Person"ality Traits in the Fables - Section 2: Guiding the Learning


I knew the lesson on the first fable would be a bit difficult because they weren't use to the creative wording, and I was right. This lesson went so much more smoothly because they got the main ideas and characters right away. There must also be a cartoon that's similar because quite a few said they had seen a similar story on tv. I don't have any young kids anymore so I'm "out of the loop" on that one! It did make for an easier lesson for them. The writing of the comparison was not as strong across the classroom as I had liked. I didn't have time in my schedule to split the lesson into two days but that would have helped, or having them continue the writing in the afternoon. Definitely something to think about if you have the time in your day.
