think they did or did not? Extension Activity: During this activity I will have the child write a journal entry using pictures and possibly write a sentence or title to his/her picture. To find out more about the picture the child will be drawing, I might say “Oh your picture has so many details; tell me more about it.” Or to compliment the form, shape and quality of the printing I can say "Your letters look very nice." Vague statements aren’t likely to offend a child, and I want to give praise where praise is deserved. Since the child is in kindergarten and may not be able to write complete sentences, I will have the child title their picture. If the child would like to write a sentence about his/her picture then I would gladly help the child write their sentence. If there is more time left over I can read our second book about dinosaurs to the child. Reflection: I believe that the lesson plan went extremely well. Henry was able to correctly identify all rhyming words as well as punctuation marks. He only had trouble understanding what a comma was and how to use a comma. We did some practice activities that helped him understand the usage of rhyming words and punctuation using sentence strips and verbal activities. Reading the book and using the words from the book in the activities made it easier for Henry to make connections and be able to comprehend the material. The only part of the lesson I would have changed was the journal writing. Henry thought I meant to write about whatever he wanted in the journal. If I were to do anything differently I would have the journal be connected with what the child learned from out lesson. I apparently was not clear enough for him to understand what I wanted from him for the particular activity. After thinking this, I asked Henry why he didn’t draw a dinosaur. He told me that it would have been too hard and drawing a ferris wheel was much easier. I understood then why he didn’t draw a dinosaur. But I

would still change the journal writing activity so that the child would draw something about the lesson that they had learned. Henry was able to learn more about rhyming words even though he is still using nonsense words while rhyming. He also learned more about punctuation and how punctuation is used. New vocabulary words were learned before reading the book and he was able to tell me what they meant after reading the text. He also said the pictures helped make sense of the story. I agreed with him and asked him if he could show me what he meant and we picked out one of the pictures that had a new word he has learned today.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
