I’m so happy to see others in my PLN having a great prac, like Sabeeca. We are at the pointy end of the year now, and very close to finishing off this subject!!
Today was another day of observation for me in the 4/5 class. I was able to help out with their spelling test, and also assist with editing of work for a short story they are doing. I spent the day marking as well, and had the opportunity to speak to the teacher aide in the room about the young girl she shadows, who has a severe case of epilepsy. She has worked with her for 5 years now, and it was so humbling to speak to such a caring person who just wants the best for her students.
I also had the opportunity to go back to the 3/4 class for their session in the computer lab to do more coding work on Scratch2.
The teacher gave me a ‘Scratch for Dummies’ book to read through, and there are so many amazing things you can do with the program, so I will definitely be buying it for myself for when I become a teacher. I have downloaded it onto my computer so I can play around with it and figure out some great ways to use it for future lessons and classes I take on. The possibilities are endless!!
Two days to go!
