Reflection: Lesson Planning The Doctor Examines the ABC's - Section 2: Procedure


Because the length of a child's name can vary in length from Ian to Charlotte, it is important to provide enough time for all students to complete their books.  I tried to also strategically place my volunteers near students that have the longer names to provide support to these children as needed.  I did not want to end up with children who were frustrated because they had so much work to do.   The book writing piece took most of my students three half-hour sessions to complete.  If they need more time, I tried to get an adult to work with them again.  The children with the shorter names were encouraged to add lots of details to their pictures.  Over all, I felt the books were quite successful.
