Reflection: High Quality Task Gingerbread Friends From Beginning to End - Section 3: Assessment


Even as young children, I hold the children to a high standard for the quality of their work.  For some children, they do not yet have the developmental skills to draw or write legibly; however, that does not mean that they can not work to the best of their ability or work neatly. Adding Details makes it easier for someone to recognize what the child is writing about. When these children exchange their pages, I try to pair them up with someone who will not be critical of their abilities but instead be careful listeners so that the child who struggles with the fine motor work can still share their thoughts.

For additional ideas for teaching this story, I have gone to the Jan Brett website.  This is great if you want to make a whole unit from Jan Brett's stories.
