BPLP Trick or Treating!
First BPLP meeting! We played headbands, made bracelets and got a treat in the cafeteria
BPLP matching event! We colored and got to know one another.
We listened to a presentation about BPLP and mandated reporting!
Today I helped students with a math app on the iPads! I also worked with them on reading skill checks.
My job today was to hide math problems around the playground for the kids to find later. We spent the entire day outside and it was so cool to see how my CT interacted with her students on the playground. She ran around and pushed them on swings and interacted with them. It was interesting to see how they looked up to her and really enjoyed being with her outside the classroom. It was also fun for me to get to know the students during free time and talk about things they like to do!
Today the kids worked in stations to complete math problems. They asked questions when they had them and I was there to help and answer them to the best of my ability. The highlight of the class period was when I helped a little girl who struggles with math understand a new concept. She got so excited and told me that math was her new favorite thing!
Today I led the kids in playing the same card game that we played last week. The only difference was that they were paired with a partner and had multiple games going at once. This proved to be hard because I had to multitask and watch multiple groups at a time. I made the mistake of pairing two girls together and had to separate them because they were not doing their work. I should have done this at the beginning, but learned from my mistake.
Today in class I worked with a small group of students during a rotation of their stations. During the game they had to play memory with giant cards and add up sums of ten. There were some struggles with sharing but after redirection they all took turns and had a great time! We also used our fingers to count when students were having a difficult time with the concept of adding numbers.
Today was a difficult day because the kids were doing an activity that involved scissors and sharing supplies. They had to be reminded constantly that they needed to share and focus on their work without getting distracted.
