Reflection: Lesson Planning 4 Square Fact or Fiction - Section 4: Game Play


WOW! This lesson was full of energy. Some of my most challenging kiddos were at their happiest during this lesson. One even said, "This is great! I'm taking one of these home for homework". Why were they so happy you ask? Because of the simple addition of movement to this lesson. Kids LOVED getting to tape their cards onto the True and False charts. They were so surprised when the True chart filled up so fast and found that endlessly funny. 

I try to add movement components to as many of my lessons as I can-it hits another kind of learner, the kinesthetic! This can be a hard kind of learner to accommodate in the classroom. But as you can see in this lesson, it didn't take a lot of movement to get them motivated. The true/false charts gave them a reason to get up and also helped them showcase their work! Highly recommended!
