Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Snail Facts - Section 4: Independent Practice


My students enjoyed listening to Are You a Snail?  The pictures and information given about snails prompted them to ask questions and remember things about snails they observed.  Because we had worked before with identifying the topic, main idea, and supporting details, this activity is getting easier for them.  Some of my more independent students are able to fairly accurately complete the graphic organizer on their own.  Just about all of my students met my teaching goal of being able to identify the topic, main idea, and supporting details and write about what new things they learned in their journals from their graphic organizers.  The important thing to remember is they are still learning and need lots of practice.
