Assessment

Walking around while the students are working and see if they understood or not
Reflection
The preparation of the lesson and activities went well, because I bring
all materials and organized well my planning. If I will give this lesson
again I may change the first activity and make it easier for the
students because they spend whole the time to complete it.
The children learned the meaning of main idea and details. I knew that
because when I assess them by asking them of their meanings, most
of them answered correctly.
In the future I will show the students one example before giving them
the activity to make sure that they understand.
