Reflection: Lesson Planning L-M-N-O Peas! What Will I Grow Up to Be? - Section 3: Assessment


Sometimes the best laid plans are cut short by an interruption or change in the schedule.  I had planned on the children doing much more of the writing on the first day than I really ended up having them do.  Our school has worked very hard to have language arts blocks that allow support personnel to "push in" in the attempt to give all children small group attention daily.  There are times when I have a paraprofessional, Title One teacher, Special Education teacher, and Speech and Language teacher in my room during the ELA block.  On the days when they all converge on my room is one of the days that I will plan a big writing project because there is so much help.  On the day that I planned this lesson, all but one support person got pulled to do other things, so I wrote down the job choice on the pages for the children and just focused on having the children draw very detailed pictures.  It is a good thing when lesson planning to think about how you would handle a challenging lesson if a "curve ball" is thrown.  Flexibility is key, especially when dealing with kindergarten.
