November 17 Lesson Plan
Word Sort (borrowed from a previous assignment)
Reflection: I felt the lesson went pretty well. The only issue I had was I felt that I relied too heavily on the rule that I used to double the consonant and not the doubling itself. I'm not sure if I would want to use the word journal again for just one lesson. I don't think it really worked for the students that way. If I were to use a word journal again, I would aim to start it at the very beginning of the year and have students fill it out throughout the year as they learn more words and patterns.
November 24 Lesson Plan
Reflection: The pretest that I gave out took way too much time and I think I gave it out too late (considering that it was my last lesson). Because of that, I did not have time to give out the Thanksgiving prompt. I also had to rush through the matching game. I would definitely take out the pretest for this lesson and go straight to the matching game and the Thanksgiving prompt if I have time.
