A Guide to Teaching Practice; Observation Week
This is a great week to get to know the class procedures, friendship groups, classroom management techniques and the daily structure. It gives you the chance to see how the teacher questions, motivates and inspires the children, assesses learning, differentiates and includes all children.
Use this week as an opportunity to;
- Talk to and get to know the children
- Lend a helping hand
- Ask questions
- See how things work
The children will be so excited to have a new teacher in the room so make sure to spend some time helping them, getting to know them and finding out about their interests and hobbies. This will be a huge help when you are planning lessons that are enjoyable and interesting to the children.
