Reflection: Perseverance Break It - Use Syllables in Writing - Section 2: Materials


I did not notice the word spelled differently in this powerpoint until I had looked at it right before the lesson!

So.. the choice is... scramble and find a new one or challenge the kids?  Of course, I chose the challenge. I have high expectations for my kids, especially when you challenge them to find something wrong with someone else's work.  I told them before I started the powerpoint that there was a word with an English spelling that was different that ours and asked them to see if they could find it.  They REALLY paid attention and several kids found it before I even got through reading the slide.
