Reflection: Checks for Understanding Gingerbread Text Structures - Section 3: Version Two: The Gingerbread Cowboy


To assess ho well they are understanding the concept, I lead the class in a discussion about the two books. While we talk and I also walk around with a clipboard. I check each student's white board for their thoughts and observations on the two books. I can quickly see if the student understood the concept. I only write names down those names who I might need to do an intervention with or extra modeling and practice.

Gingerbread Text Structures

Unit 15: Holiday Lessons Throughout the Year
Lesson 2 of 5

Objective: SWBAT compare and contrast two versions of the Gingerbread Boy story. They will also discuss problem and solution of the two stories.

Big Idea: A great lesson to practice text structures between two stories that are similar. In this lesson I use two versions of the Gingerbread Man to help with compare and contrast.
