I have been placed at Davin elementary for my pre-intern block and it has been a great experience so far! Here are some of my favorite lessons 🙂
Pre-Intern Lesson #4: This health lesson is focused on street safety and the importance of knowing the safety precautions to take when crossing the street. This lesson was very interactive and the students were engaged and learning the whole time! My cooperating teacher suggested that I take the students outside in our pre-conference so I altered my lesson and after playing our red light-green light game we went out to their cross-walk where I finished up the lesson. It was reinforcing for the students to have the visual as we were discussing and this lesson was very successful!
Pre-Intern Lesson #6: This math lesson is focused on estimation. The students really enjoyed hands-on portion of this lesson. They got a basket of counters and practised their estimation skills when grouping in tens, counted the actual number and switched with another group to do the same process. I truly believe that hands-on learning helps students to be effective learners, so I loved that aspect of this lesson.
