Reflection: Flexibility The Deep Blue Sea Retold by Me - Section 1: Hook


As I began reading the story to my students, a new plan for my lesson popped into my head.  With excitement in my voice, I announced that this reading trip was going in a new direction.  My original plan was to read the story and have the students draw a picture about what they had heard, but once I began reading, I started thinking that the children might enjoy the story more if they built the picture as I read each page and gave them a bit of information.  Sometimes this happens with lessons and the best results come from these spontaneous moments.  I really enjoyed teaching this lesson and shared the idea with several friends.
