Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Using the Pictures to Describe the Character - Section 3: Guided Practice


I usually have a movement associated with our lesson to help break the monotony, add something for my kinetic learners, and/or to let my students explore being creative.  When I introduced the work 'sulk' to my students I explained it and acted it out for them.  They were pretty excited by that and wanted it to be their movement word.  I thought they were learning a new vocabulary word.  However, when I saw them sulking to the cafeteria, and sulking in line, I realized- they not only learned a new word, they were imitating me acting the word out.  Sometimes you just have to have a sense of humor, because it was pretty funny.
