Today I facilitated some spelling tests for Ms Guaponne. Also, there are two student teachers from MSU now teaching in this classroom, so I am getting the opportunity to observe them.
This class period I lead math groups so I got to work with each of the 3 groups which are made by how much assistance the students will need. I also got to interact with the students at lunch time. The class I help in is definitely the best behaved.
Today I assisted with group book projects. Students were split into 3 groups and given a character from the story they read and were instructed to describe their character and then draw the character. Students had to use teamwork to complete the project. Some groups were great at communicating exactly what each of them were going to do. Others struggled which lead to some students becoming upset. Overall, it was a fun experience for me.
Today I corrected some math homework for Mrs. Guaponne. I was supposed to hint to the students how they needed to amend their work, without just putting the answer in. This turned out to be a little tricky!
Today was an average day in the classroom. I sat and read books with some of the students. Very laid back and non stressful
Today in Ms Guaponne's class I led one station in a math rotation that Students were cycling through.
