My ‘Student of the Day’ did a great job today understanding the instructions in this activity about prepositions.
We are reading a book, Where is Max? It deals with prepositions. Students are required to read instructions and draw the story characters depending on the preposition to show where they are. Following instructions in a new language can be challenging due to the language acquisition, meaning, and directions of the activity. The classes did very well, offering me numerous observations about their learning styles, their varied abilities, and the need for consistent scaffolding of meaningful steps and strategies to aid in their learning.
Peer tutoring and collaboration is so important in all activities.
