Evaluation:
 1. Is the student getting better at dictionary skills? Is he able to find words without assistance? 2. Re-telling rubric 3. As each piece of work is completed, together we will check for understanding. I will have the student explain his thought-process on answering the way he did if the answer is incorrect and discuss why it is incorrect. I will also have student explain random correct answers to make sure it wasn't just a guess.
Teacher Reflections:
  1. I will have the student read the informational selection aloud, then I will read it aloud. After both have read aloud, I will have the student read the same selection independently for review. Student will answer questions and we will discuss the answers. Any incorrect answers will be reviewed in the selection. 2. Student will pronounce high frequency words. Any words that are mispronounced will be broke apart and phonic skills will be used to sound the word out. 3. Alphabetical order- are the words in the correct order? 4. Can the student explain some of the definitions for some multiple meaning words? 5. Mad Libs- can the student define what a noun, adjective, pronoun, and verb is? Can the student give multiple examples of each?
