Reflection: Modeling Making Connections in Sentences - Section 3: Closure


I had several compound sentences marked in the book we had been using that week in class to share as examples during this lesson. However, students were so engaged in creating their own sentences that we ran out of time to examine the examples in the mentor text. During the closure part of today’s lesson, I walked the room and took notes on those students who were unable to identify compound sentences while reading. I planned to use my mentor text examples in a small group lesson just for those students later that week.
