adventures in student teaching


I am getting ready to start my third week of student teaching. It sure is different than having your own classroom. I have to follow the lead of my master teacher and follow the procedures and discipline plan that she has set up, even though I would not necessarily use them for my own classroom. 

My master teacher is very nice, and I have learned a lot of interesting concepts that she uses in her classroom. I am excited to take them back to my own classroom. I really like the way she does writers workshop. She has the kids edit their own papers and then with a partner before they turn it into her. I will be taking that back to my class. I think it is great that they have learned how to edit their own papers. It is such a great skill for them to master, and I had never thought to have my students do that. I have also learned a lot about centers. My master teacher uses them a lot. I am not sure I would do it exactly the same way as her, but I will be trying them back in my classroom when I return. 

I have also had the opportunity to try my hand at creating some materials for the class. I am not great at it yet, but it was really fun trying everything out! Last week we read the story, "Officer Buckle and Gloria." We had tons of fun with it. I had the kids come up with their own safety tip, and here is the worksheet that I created. Just click on the picture and enjoy this fun freebie. I hope that you enjoy!
