«Cinquain« method


I used my lesson for assessment Criteria – based assessment. Using flowers, petals, leaves were successful idea. It was true and real.

Art, geography.

Interactive board, worksheet,


Were the lesson objectives /learning objectives realistic?
What did the learners learn today?
What was the learning atmosphere like?
Did my planned differentiation work well?
Did I stick to timings? What changes did I make from my plan and why?

In my opinion the lesson objectives/learning objectives

were workable. The strategy SQ3R  was curiosity for


In my view that my learners learned about the names of seasons and months. Learners were able to write words right.

Learners were given answers for display question.

In drawing seasons and using a picture dictionary were active for the learners. Learners did these activities with pleasure and learning atmosphere was splendidly.

The level «C« learners had worked with «Cinquain« method .The method helped to learners enlarge their vocabulary.

I stuck to timing. I would be add to my plan video about seasons and months.

Summary evaluation

What two things went really well?

         Speaking for myself «Picture shapes« and «EXPO`s tickets« games were good where learners spoke more.

         Using a picture dictionary and SQ3R strategy were developed learners cognitive skill.

What two things would have improved the lesson?

         I think that my lesson was less reading and I must give task for reading.

         I believe that I would pay attention to the dialogue.

What have I learned about the class or individuals that will inform my next lesson?

I know I will have to work with text. I must improve  free speaking in English.
