Activity Evaluation and Reflections

  1. Review Objectives/Goals for the Activity
  2. Talk with teachers and children who participated and how they felt about it, if they enjoyed it and if they learned anything.
  3. Review the data from observations to see how well the children did recognizing the beginning letter and following directions to take turns.
  4. Identified what worked and what didn't. Were children engaged, were they able to follow directions and what areas could be improved.
  5. Make adjustments as needed based on the feedback and results of the data.
  6. Take notes: Write down your reflections and any changes you made to the activity.
