Reflection What went well, what should be changed, what did the assessment data show?
Overall, I feel my lesson went very well, especially for it being the first time doing a lesson with
this age level. For the first part of the lesson the children and I sat at the rug and read the story called
Mouse Shapes. For the most part, the children sat still and enjoyed listening to the book but by the
time the end of the book approached, the children did not want to sit still anymore so it was a good
idea we went right on to the painting. At this age level, after reading a story I saw that there were no
intentions on having a discussion because the children just wanted to be moving and active rather
than sitting listening to a story. If I were to read a story for my next lesson, I would make the story
more active. But the children did have an understating what the story was about because as we were
reading and doing the activity afterwards, the children were making connections with their artwork
and the concept of the story. The activity with the stamping of the foam blocks went extremely well,
but not exactly how I planned it to go. My goal of the activity was to have the children create different
objects out of the shapes by stamping the shapes onto the paper, but it turned out that the children
use this as more of an experimentation process with the blocks and the paint. In the beginning the
children were stamping the shapes like planned, but then realized that after the block was stamped
on the paper, the block had the ability to be swirled around. So the children ended up just dipping the
blocks into the paint and then swirling the paint around. Even though the end product was not what I
had hoped for, the students still were being assessed on their knowledge of the shapes. When
grabbing the new block, the children asked for the circle or the square and the triangle block,
which allowed me to visually see that the children had an understanding on what shape was which.
Within the activity it was clear to me that the students were learning through the experimenting of the
paint and the blocks. The assessment data showed that the children were able to recognize each of
the shapes (square, circle, triangle) as well as were able to explain their picture, and the ability of the
childrens use of fine motor skills. The assessments are attached below of each of the children as well
as the work samples.
