COA 15 Film Festival Blog commenting.mp4

Direct Instruction

The learning intentions for this lesson was we are learning to write positive thoughtful and helpful blog comments.

Extended plan here


The children had a lot to say about the movies they watched. They enjoyed writing comments and could all say positive things and ask questions. I found the level to concentration in was lower than normal due to the overall excited was high for the film festival tomorrow. Reflecting on my teaching I noticed I repeated myself more than I would have liked.

Thing to note:

I tried something new with the camera today with moving it to each child. I am not sure this had effect I wanted.
