Reflection: Complex Tasks Personification - Section 4: Sharing Out


Students generated their sample ideas from the first section of this lesson.  I try to provide background information and concrete examples as I introduce this lesson by showing video clips and websites that show sample personification applications.  Second graders need concrete examples to comprehend the more abstract samples.  As a result of the effective introduction, students were able to present their creative ideas, as evident by the Personification student sample.
