The new unit in grade 4 is Striking and Fielding Games. To do a general pre-assessment of where each student is at, they will rotate through 5 stations with a partner. They will take turns at striking and fielding at 4 of the stations. The 5th station will involve throwing and fielding. Each student will have their own assessment sheet and at the conclusion of each station,m they will assess themselves at striking and fielding. I have kept striking very general and despite the fact that tennis and ping pong are not officially "Striking" games, I will still have the students work on using mini-tennis rackets and bigger sized ping pong paddles. I feel strongly that hand and eye coordination is still a focus regardless of apparatus being used in this case.
To help the ESL students, I always include images on my rubrics. For today's class, I have opted to take pictures of the equipment being used at each station to avoid any confusion. See assessment task below. Once completed I will scan and upload examples of the finished assessment task which will also include a photo of the students in action. Fingers crossed!! I hope this lesson works out as intended!
