Skype Reflection

(1)What topics did you present? How did you go about making in "stick" with your audience?
My group and I did the introduction of the of the skype call as part of the "Six Word Stories". We made six cards that each had the numbers written from 1-6 to help the kids show how there are 6 numbers for each word. Glitter was used to make it more appealing to the kids. This helped them visualize what we were talking about.
(2) How do you feel your mini lesson went? Strengths? Weaknesses?
I feel like our lessons went well since we had everything written down for us to say. Though I also feel like we could have given more detail about how the six word stories became what it is, who started it or where it originated from. We also could have memorized our lines to make it look like we were naturally talking about it instead of reading off the paper.
(3) What did you learn about the process of teaching and learning?
I learned that teaching is a very hard process, especially when it comes to grade 3 students. You have to choose your words wisely in able for them to understand what you are teaching and you also have to step into their point view to help it guide you on how they should be taught.
(4) What should we do next?
I think we should come visit Ms.Bettess and each of us could read to one of her students or they can try teaching us for a change.
