    My obsersvation of the lesson:
    The students really enjoyed creating their own ending to the story. Most of their endings were very unique and creative. I thought it was a good lesson because the students had to break into groups and learn to work together in order to come up with an alternative ending to the story. For the most part all the students got along and could draft a good ending to the story but their were few who got off tasks.

    Title: "Story Impressions"
    By: Stephanie Martinez
    Edited By: Krystal Billeck and Heather Miller
    Textbook Definition: Prereading strategy that helps students anticipate what stories could be about using content fragments to make predictions.
    Description of Lesson: Students are taken on a picture walk through the story Wings by Christopher Myers
    Date Observed: November 9, 2011
    Teacher and School: Vanya, Creech Elementary School
    Grade Level: 3rd
    Objectives of the Lesson: Students will be able to predict what stories will be about by taking a picture walk.
    Materials:
    Wings by Christopher Myers
    Procedure:
    Mrs. Vanya called students by table to sit on the classroom rug. She then told the students that they were going to go on a picture walk. She started with the cover and asked students what they thought the story was going to be about. One student answered with: "A superhero." She then began turning pages and continued to ask students, "What do you think is going on here?". After she finished with the picture walk, Mrs. Vanya said, "Let's see if your predictions are right. We'll start reading the story."
    Supporting Documents:

    My Observations: The students really enjoyed making guesses. Some even argued saying that a guess was wrong, but Mrs. Vanya was quick to tell students that guesses are people's opinions and we should never discourage someone for their opinion.
    Benefits of Story Impressions: Story Impressions help students to extend their reading techniques. Rather then simply reading the book right away, the picture walk helped students to figure out what the book was about. Any story impression strategy is going to do just that, make an impression of the story into the mind of the student. They can recall the picture walk when they need to recall information about a book.
    Drawbacks of Story Impressions: Students may tend to get competative when they find out whether their predictions are right or wrong.
