#4 allows the students to explore the belief of the main message or theme of the story using their descriptions and illustrations to support their answers. My goal is to assess the students understanding of the questions that will be asked and the content area. I want my students to understand and comprehend the concepts and skills from the activities. For Knowledge & Understanding category of L.T. #1, I will include 1 multiple choice question so that my students will understand the importance of knowing what an illustration is, and why they are important in the text.
She did one more set and decided that was enough push-ups for the first day. She squeezed a rubber eraser one hundred times, hoping it would strengthen her thumb. This seemed to work because the next day her thumb was sore. She could hardly hold a marble in her hand, let alone send it flying with power. So Lupe rested that day and listened to her brother, who gave her tips on how to shoot: get low, aim with one eye, and place one knuckle on the

Recently, I performed a running record with a young student. She read from a book entitled “Dinner for Maisy;” an ‘H’ level book. As she read, her understanding and knowledge of letter sounds/blends became very apparent. For example, each time she came upon the name of the character “Maisy,” she would sound out the letters, clearly articulating and blending the letter sounds to create her best guess at the word. In the case of the name Maisy, as in the case of other words, this student demonstrated an awareness of visual cues.
At that point, about a month later on April 5, Helen related the water running over her hand with the letters w-a-t-e r that Anne was spelling into her hand. That day she learned thirty words and turned out to be an exceptionally astute, quick learner from that point on. She immediately took in the fingertip letters in order and presently, to compose. Helen had aced Braille and figured out how to utilize a by the age of 10. When she was 16, she could talk alright to go to private academy and school.
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of explicit sight word instruction on the reading speed of elementary EFL students. Participants’ ability to read affects their daily lives in significant ways. Thus, effective pedagogical methods of reading instruction are imperative. Memorizing lists of words by sight is especially difficult for participants who need multiple exposures to successful. Therefore, it is necessary to see different ways to teach participants who visit for multiple repetitions in an approach that will not lead to ennui or frustration.
Where do I want to go to and why? Their work will be check for errors. Letting the students critically think of what they desire will prepare them strongly for a fruitful discussion on the group road trip. Task 3: This activity will focus on developing the reading abilities of the student using a road trip planning article titled: How to Plan the Perfect Road Trip. Pre-reading and post-reading activities will be done in order to introduce vocabulary and then check comprehension.

d. A teacher wants to know whether a particular teaching strategy is more beneficial for boys or girls. She puts all girls’ names in one hat, and all boys’ names in the other hat. She then selected 10 boy and 10 girls to participate in her study. Ans. Stratified Random Sampling because she chooses students equally from girls and boys group.
When speaking, she uses conjunctions and singular nouns. The student can understand simple directions such as sitting down and writing her name. The student is learning basic knowledge and will need more time to grasp the first-grade concepts. The second-grade students are developing grade level standards in reading, speaking and listening. The students are reading out loud which will improve their comprehension and reading accuracy.
They may ask questions and use their notes to make the corrections. Classwork is a learning tool, so we often redo work until it is right. In this unit, students planned, discussed, and then created their final project. Grades were taken on three activities and one summative assessment. They were given three different ways to demonstrate their learning before they were to complete their project.
