Reflection from prior lesson:

The students did well on their of books. They were able to pick out of in the sentence
in the discussion. We worked on spelling the word by cheering it, whispering it, and
jumping it. The students really enjoy it and it gets them moving. If I would do this lesson
again, I would make sure the students really know the word, not just recognize it. I did
not feel like I really reinforced it, so I would like to find another activity to do with the
word of.

3. Closure (5 minutes)

What did we learn about in our story today? Our story was a fable. Does anyone
remember what a fable means from earlier this week? What was the main idea of
the fable? Can anyone tell me the main characters in the story?
B. Assessments Used

Informal: Class discussion about the story and the vocab.

C. Differentiated Instruction

When we are doing vocabulary with the Amazing words, I will have my students who are
lower go first so they can pick from any pictures and give them some of the more
recognizable, because none have been taken so far. After that I will have some higher
students go because they will be able to think about some of the more complex words
with less aid.
