Reflection on Week Three


Sixth Grade

They are doing a unit on Perseverance. To peak their interest, I showed two music videos, Chris Brown’s Forever, and Rihanna’s Take a Bow. I had students look at the narrative arc of the videos, the visual symbolism, and how it fits into their unit. I also discovered that I mispelled Rihanna’s name. Here are their comments:

Fourth Grade

I am still trying to teach fourth graders how to work in a blog environment. Fourth Grade is the first grade where I do blogging. Last week was spent back-tracking to cover how to do a comment, which I had foolishly omitted earlier. I had forgotten that although I have the same kids, not all of them were blogging last year (like the entire third grade, duh). Here are their first comments. Some show real promise.

Fifth Grade

Most of the kids seem to have a pretty good b.s. monitor as you can see from these comments:

    NANCY! I thought you were retiring. So nice to see you still in the classroom. Nice share. I will bookmark. I want to work my sixth and fifth graders towards commenting on other blogs this year, so can I keep your blog in mind?
