remembering what they heard, and turning it into a sentence.

Post Lesson Reflection

1. To what extent were lesson objectives achieved? (Utilize


assessment data to justify your level of achievement)

Lesson objective #1 was achieved. By looking at the chart and


listening to students Ideas I was able to see that students understood what
makes a firefighter a community helper. A few students came up with ideas
that they were lifesavers and that they helped them feel safe. I think that
this showed that students felt as though firefighters have good qualities that
show they are a good citizen in our community.

Lesson objective #2 was achieved. After assessing the students


facts about firefighters I was able to see that students had good thoughtful
sentences. The sentences started with an uppercase letter and ended with a
period. If students did not have either of those I sent them back to their
tables so that they could fix it and try again.

Lesson objective #3 was achieved. Students were able to show


me that they could create ideas to write to the firefighters to thank them for
the work they do in our community. Even though this part of the lesson was
harder for some of the students I could tell that is really pushed their
thinking and they had good ideas on how firefighters show respect and good
citizenship to our community.

2. What changes, omissions, or additions to the lesson would


you make if you were to teach again?

If I were to teach this lesson again I would make sure to scaffold


better when writing the letter with my students. When students had a harder
time thinking of an idea of what to write I would go back to the book that we
read and re-read some parts to help them think of more ideas. I would also
show them an example letter so that they could see the format of how we
were going to write the letter.

3. What do you envision for the next lesson? (Continued practice,


reteach content, etc.)

My next lesson is with our guest speaker. Since students know


how to write a thank you letter now we will have them write one each
guest speaker that we have come talk to our class. I hope that after
our next guest speaker students will be able to create their own thank
you letter to give to the next guest speaker. I will also ask students to

think about how each guest speaker shows how they are a good citizen
within our community.
