Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Warthogs Can Cook? - Section 1: Warm Up


I love using technology in the classroom.  I am new to using technology, but I am learning the value it has for my ELL students.  I used technology today to build background knowledge for the story. Seriously, what is a warthog?  I don't even think our zoo has warthogs.  It is amazing what I can find on the internet to help me with instruction.  I showed this short video and referred to the movie, Lion King to help them understand what animal was in our story today.  It is difficult for students to fully understand a story if they don't know what you are talking about.   So, again, the students have to think about cupcakes they have had and how they tasted.  I am always amazed at how much my students have in their brain that they can use to understand the concepts I teach.
