Reflection: Student Grouping Probably... Context Clue Practice - Section 2: Modeling and Practice


After the lesson, I realized that when we were working together practicing context clues, it might have been better to have students be in elbow buddies or in partners. If I would have done this students would have to participate more and the engagement level would have gone up. The participation was good, but students that are shy or uncertain do not answer all the time. This way they would have talked with their partner. This would have been better for students with special needs or ELL students. They could have probably gained more of they discussed with a peer.

Big Idea: Context clues can be tricky and looking for the hidden clue to understand the whole meaning takes practice. This lesson uses the word "probably" to help students build a complete sentence that relates to the hidden context clue.
