Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Christmas Vacation - Section 3: Partner Work


First of all everyone forgot to indent except for the Proficient work in the resources, but I did make them go back and fix it as they were working. So, remembering to reiterate that they need to indent is essential. I think I didn't go over this enough.

The Basic Work in the resources is really an example of magnificent growth, but there are still places where the grammar is wrong.  I even pointed that out it the writing time. The student also forgot to use the word, first, in his first sentence.

The Below Basic work is really beyond me. Maybe this child was in the bathroom during the explanation, guided practice, and introductory activity.  So much happens in the afternoon this is possible, because my students go to so many different interventions.  All I can say is that this work does not fit with any of the criteria on the rubric or in my explanation.  I can say that I will be focusing on this child during the next lesson, because they did not know what to do. The strange thing is this child typically works on grade level.  Sometimes, as first grade teachers, we just have to reteach the basics I guess!
