In order to prepare my grade 3 and 4 students for their final routines, I had them complete movement composition booklets the last few weeks of the unit. As they were following a process, they needed to reflect at each step of this process in order to stay on track and improve. There were 6 steps in the process and knowing which step they were on helped them to stay focused on the routines they were creating with their other group members. The assessment criteria was generally the same for grades 3 and 4 and can be seen in my last blog. Once completed performing their routines, they had to draw their routines and explain what they were responsible for. The students did a wonderful job on these booklets. The classroom teacher allowed them about 20 minutes to complete their booklets which helped out a lot. This was an integrated unit with grade 3 as they were doing a UoI on how processes play an important role in the creation of art and music. Please view slide show below of their outstanding work.
