This will be me starting next week! We have a couple new students joining and then most of the children are moving up from preschool. They have to get used to the Pre-K routines versus the preschool ones, and get to know the new students. Next week won’t be too difficult for curriculum, so we can work on sitting at morning circle, and making sure they listen to myself and co-teacher. It is exciting 🙂 The week after next will be great because the theme is All About Me, where there are lots of various activities we can do – I want to incorporate the “self sack” I found on Facebook as well as posters and sharing from each kid. It’s really coming together!
Today my family and I went to the coast. It was very nice! We brought our dog, Bear, and it was ALL of our first times at this coastal town. Seeing Bear discover the ocean, sand, and smells of the beach was sweet 🙂 He was like a baby, trying to get closer to the water each time (with our help, of course!) There was a lot of nervousness in him at the beginning because it was somewhere he had never been – with overwhelming sensory moments. He became more and more comfortable with the location and other dogs that he wanted to go towards the water as well as run up and down the coast.It connected with teaching for me because I want to show children things they haven’t experienced before in science, math, reading, or anything in life. It is all about discovery and learning from the errors. You know you are in the zone for teaching employment when you tie things from your everyday life with what you could do in the classroom – have a big interview tomorrow 😮 Hope it goes well!
