1st Day of Teaching

30 Aug

So today was my first day of teaching 5th grade for my long-term sub job. The day actually went pretty well and better than I expected. I was really nervous leading up to this morning and as the kids came in, I didn’t feel quite so nervous. We did all easy, getting to know you, first day of school activities. Things were going quicker than expected and I felt like I was running out of things to do but it all ended up working out in the end. I feel pretty good at the end of the day.

We made fabulous self-portraits today. Most of them came out really well. I already hung them up on our bulletin board.

I even made one of myself while the students were working on theirs. (I know it is kind of light…I colored it with colored pencils)

I also put together our schedule and laminated it so we know what is going on during our day.

So overall, I think the day went pretty well. I’m looking forward to the next few months of learning more about my teaching style and having this experience.

    Wait so recess is only 15 minutes. How unfair. I think it was at least a half hour to 45 minutes for us.

    Well in elementary school they have a longer recess but we’re in middle school so they only get a short one. They could probably use a longer one though. haha.

thanks for stopping by to leave me some love. <3
