Reflection: Intervention and Extension The Gingerbread Man Gets All Wet! - Section 3: Assessment


When I presented this lesson, I cut my ending too close to dismissal.  I did not have the opportunity to explain the section about whether their hypotheses agreed or disagreed.  This is a part that I really like to emphasize.  I do not like my students to think that there is a right or wrong answer to an investigation, but instead I like them to see if the results agreed with their initial hypothesis.  The children will tend to erase and change their answers if they think that there is a right or wrong.

As a Lesson extension, I have the children illustrate a gingerbread story map.  The children retell the story using their Gingerbread retelling paper to a parent volunteer.  The parent volunteer writes out the names of the characters that the child dictates to her.  Although this doesn't follow the lesson that I taught, when I have a volunteer in my room, I try to reinforce any comprehension skills that I can.
