6. Evaluation:

(How will you know whether or not you have achieved your short-term specific goals? What did the childrens responses to this lesson tell you about whether your goals were met? I will know if the students can read the words easily when we read the story. I will see the students following along the story because they know what is going on. The students can answer my concept questions and synonym questions if they understand the words. The students can retell the story and characters after they listened to the story.

7. Post-lesson reflection:

What would you change about this lesson and why would those changes improve it?

I would try to stay on topic more. Sometimes the students got excited about neighborhood sounds or drums and wanted to share stories which got off topic. I would also pay more attention to time. I got everything done in my lesson but the last bit I felt was a little rushed. I would also pull the group together more often because I feel it is slightly tedious but it is necessary to make sure everyone is paying attention.

How did your organization and materials affect the success of the lesson?

Organization of the material went great. I went in the right order and the lesson flowed nicely. The students were able to be with every step of the way and followed what I was doing. There were no real surprises because they have done similar things like this before, but they responded to me doing it this time well.

What were some challenges with this lesson? What surprised you?

Some students were not willing to listen or stop talking. I went through the usual steps to quiet everyone down and did the classrooms policies if the students dont listen, but some of the students didnt seem to care. I will need to come up with something ne w to get their attention or put something else in my lesson to make them want to be more engaged.

Additional comments?

I think occasionally because the students do a version of this lesson every week but with different stories some of them seem to be a little bored with it. For next time, I think I want to try to throw in a different activity or something extra to switch it up so the children dont fall into a mindless routine.
