Week one of prac done and dusted…
Why do I feel the need to be counting this one down!? I normally really enjoy my pracs, but this one is doing my head in. Maybe because it is grade 1 and I really don’t want to teach the earlier years. Is that bad?
I’m finding it to be a real challenge. The content is so … basic! I’m finding there is no intellectual stimulation and because the earlier years is not an area I’m keen on, I have no real strategies to use. My mentor, I think, has picked up on this a little and advised that it is different to teach the earlier year levels, but I will figure it out eventually and all will be right with the world (of my prac).
I hope so. I have two weeks left to teach my 5 ICT lesson, which I have yet to do! Hopefully as my lesson teaching load increases, these won’t be a problem.
Here’s to a better second week…. (she says with doubt )
