It's the second week of my practicum, this week I found out what I will be teaching for my five lessons. I will be doing reading with the class. This will be a lot different than my last set of lessons I had to teach. The teacher gave me all of the things I need, with a basic outline of the lessons. It really saves me a lot of work because she wants it done just like she does it, and to pretty much use the basic lesson out of the book. For my last practicum I taught social studies, for these lessons I was able to do whatever I found interesting from the text. I have enjoyed seeing the different ways that teachers do things in their classrooms.

Today was the first day of practicum, I'm in the third grade this term. I was nervous at first, but the students seemed to warm up fairly quickly. I am excited to be able to meet with my teacher more to figure out what the rest of the term will bring. She said we will meet tomorrow to figure out the lessons I will be teaching!

Beginning of the term...

It's once again the beginning of a new term, this means lots of new classes, assignments, and stress. I feel like I have learned a lot already this term, I find myself being more prepared and excited to become a teacher someday. I will be doing my last practicum placement in the third grade classroom. This will be new for me, I have been in first and fifth. I'm excited to see what this term brings, and what new things I will learn from it!
