go about solving this. We have our colors along
the bottom but what are we missing on the
side? (Let them think for a few seconds) Share
with a buddy. Call on two or three kids to share
with the class. We are missing the numbers.
Our story talks about numbers 1-4. Do you
recon we go up by 5s? 10s? 2s? (See if they
need any guiding to the number 1 as the
answer) We are going to count up in 1s. I have
read the story to you once but I would suggest
you read it to yourself and start filling in boxes
with the colors as you read it.
It starts out by saying that Bob found 2 blue
eggs. Where is Blue on my graph? (Call on one
or two kids to share with the class) Yep, it’s our
second slot over. So if Bob found two blue eggs
than how many boxes do I fill in? (Call on one
or two kids to share with the class) Two! You
seem like you’ve got this.
Okay, and when we go to do this on our own
what do we need to make sure that we have on
our pages? (Call on one or two kids to share
with the class) We need our date and our
WALT. What kind of date do we need? (Call on
one or two kids to share with the class) We
need our short date. Do you think that you are
ready to try some on your own? Once you’ve
finished the first sheet, show it to a peer before
showing it to Miss Davies or myself. I will give
you the next sheet when you’ve finished. If they
are ready, let them try it on their own.
Phase 2 Assessment Note student response for whether or not
you should go back over any instructions.
