As you may or may not know, I am currently completing my Level II internship this semester. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays I work in a third grade classroom. I absolutely love it.
First off, let me share my favorite conversation that took place this week.
Little girl in my class: *raises hand* "Is there reception in space?"
Girl: "Yeah, like for your cell phone. Can astronauts use them in space?" Haha. It was hilarious.
I have been teaching science since my second week of interning. My teacher told me about two weeks ago that I was ready to teach more, so I am now teaching reading as well. I also meet with a small group of four students for guided reading. I love that I am allowed to teach more often. I really feel that I am growing as a teacher. I love to know that I am helping my students to learn new things!
For the past two weeks or so I have been teaching a science unit on the outer space focusing on the Sun and stars. For one assignment I had my students write five facts about the Sun on a paper place and then decorate. Here are a few of their beautiful Suns. :)
They are great, aren't they? I was so proud of their work. My cooperating teacher did as well. If you can't tell, she hung them all up and displayed them in the classroom.
This week a little girl in my class gave me this picture:
She then told me, "You can give it to your husband and pretend that you drew it if you want to." Haha. Like I said before, my class is adorable.
Well, now you know what has been going on at school lately. Next week I am continuing to teach science and reading. I can't wait to see what kind of adventures that third grade has in store for me. :)
