First days.

So I had my first observation days in the classroom. And I just loved it! :) I've gotten written into a story, and the kids were upset when they found out I wouldn't be back for a week. My teacher is great and I really think we're going to get along. I know almost all of the students names (there are 29 so that's saying something) and they were starting to trust me a little bit for advice or help today (yesterday they would double check everything with the teacher). All I did was read a story and help the students with their writing and math but it was still a blast!

This is the book I read (a student had brought it from home).
It was very cute and it rhymed. Check it out!

Tomorrow is my first PD day and we are planning the next units for the new curriculum they are building as they go along. Should be interesting.

Anyways. Successful week and I'm happy as can be! :) I hope all the other BEd-ers had as wonderful a time as me! I think I'm really going to like this job.


  1. I'm so happy your time in the classroom went well! And good for you for knowing their names! I think I know all mine, too!

    See you on Sunday!

  2. Wow, it's amazing that you know almost all their names! I have such a hard time remembering names, thank goodness my teacher has names on all the desks! But she teaches at least 3 different classes, too, so there are a lot of students. I'm glad you had a good couple of days. I think I was too focused on those checklists we had to fill out, and sitting there watching instead of doing anything really tired me out. Yesterday I moved around a bit more, and today, the PD day, was the best. Actually, I should write about this in my blog as well. Great idea! Thanks for being so motivational :D

  3. So excited for you Steph! Can't wait to have a chat and hear all about it!
