Last week I taught the 4th graders for the first time, and it was quite the eye opening experience. I came to class not as prepared as I should have been making it a little difficult. Nevertheless, the experience overall was a positive one and gave a sneak peak about what teaching in Saint John will be like. Some of the kids liked to explore while others simply just followed what we would say while teaching them. It was neat when the kids got the hang of it, in fact many of them understood it more than I did! (I will make sure that changes by Saint John!) Teaching the kids though really did make me excited to go to Saint John and teach the kids what we have been practicing all year.
On another note, for the past couple of weeks we have been working on lessons. Mine happens to be on law. I have really enjoyed the freedom we have gotten with these lessons. It is nice how we get to each use our own creative techniques to create a unique lesson. I have particularly enjoyed tracing and drawling pictures for the different slides! I am excited to add some games to my lesson and see what it looks like when it is complete. I can not believe that Saint John is less than a month away, I am very excited!
