I have been anticipating this final entry for weeks! This is officially my final blog of my Master’s program! Yes, this calls for a celebration!
Now on to business… This practicum experience has been a great way to spend my July! Chelsea and I were lucky to have a great group of five first graders. These students were all very eager and motivated to learn reading and math. They came to “school” each day with smiles on their faces and snacks in their hands. We taught these students basic first grade mathematics and reading skills, along with social skills. We focused our instruction on high frequency words and numbers and operations.
I learned that I love working with younger students. Previously, I have only worked with second through fifth grades. First grade was a new experience for me! I enjoyed working with them and was eager to watch them learn new skills.
I will always remember this experience and am so grateful to have the best co-teacher!
Adios, blogging world,
