Reflection on a first grade writing lesson


I thought the mini lesson was particularly effective at providing scaffolding by presenting a story and giving students information about what techniques the author used to make his or her writing effective. The teacher then followed up by providing a prompt and showing students a detailed example. She asked questions and checked comprehension throughout the lesson. She also encouraged the students to give her examples and help her build on a text and use their ideas to write a new story. Students then went and did some work in their writer’s notebook. After writing, students were given the opportunity to share their writing with the class. Overall, I liked this lesson as students were able to reflect on the writing process, they were enthusiastic and engaged and they were willing to share their ideas throughout the lesson. The teacher created an environment where students felt comfortable writing and expressing themselves and this contributed to the facilitation of the successful lesson.
