Step 4—Reflection
What happened during my lesson? What did my students learn? How do I know?
What did I learn? How will I improve my lesson next time?
I learnt standing on American students’ perspective to think, so counting from 11 to 99 needs calculation for them, so enough explain is necessary.
My students love rap and music, they like chant and songs, so I will create some chants for them.
