Weeks Go By!
Another week has ended of student teaching! Friday was an excellent day for me. In the morning, all of the 2nd grade classes took a field trip to Oxbow Park. We split into two groups. My group listened to the park ranger talk about insects and bugs first. The children then took nets out into a prairie and tried to catch whatever they could find! Wow, did they love that! Many of them caught grasshoppers and a few caught moths. I enjoyed seeing smiling faces when they caught something! After that, we took a hike to a playground. They had a snack and played on it. It was a great morning!
In the afternoon, my teacher was gone so we had a substitute. Well, since I am the second teacher in the classroom, I taught everything! The substitute did not teach but rather helped. It was awesome to see how well the children listened to me. I enjoyed teaching by myself, and it gave me some confidence for the rest of the time I have left of student teaching!
This weekend has been fun, too! Friday evening my friends and I went to eat at South Side Soda Shop. It was very tasty! We also watched Baby Mama. Yesterday I watched my friend Laura play tennis here and then we went out to eat with her mom and aunt. I worked on some schoolwork too, of course! Today I went to church at East Goshen. I always enjoy worshiping there on Sunday mornings! This afternoon my friend Allison and I made cookies! They are delicious! We are having an apartment potluck tonight, so we will take some of them to that.
As for the rest of the evening, I should look over what I am teaching tomorrow some more so that I am prepared for my supervisor to observe me. I am excited to start teaching math this week! I’m sure the week will fly by again!
