Today I monitored my students during their Unit Exam. I also helped organize the room because the new superintendent is on campus today and will possibly stop by our class. I observed that my students were originally supposed to start their test yesterday, but it was a lot of confusion and commotion that caused them to postpone the test until today. I also observed that things can get very hectic around test time and the end of the year.
Today I helped Ms.Foster get caught up with grades by grading papers. I also helped organize papers. I observed that many of my students take their “make up day” seriously. Today was a make up day for my kids. They completed missing assignments or incomplete assignments. I do not have any questions about what I observed.

I give this week a 1. I finally taught a lesson! It was kind of scary but I got through it. It was also fun. My kids were interacting and asking questions. Sometimes I would have to call on them to answer questions, but other than that it went really well. (That was the best part of the week.) I did not have anything bad this week. I do not have any questions for my mentor or coordinator.
Today I led a lesson. I asked questions and led discussions over figurative language. I also graded papers. I observed that my students can pay attention, but you just have to keep them on task and make it fun for them. I also observed the difference in some of my classes and their behavior. Today the lesson was over figurative language. It was my teacher’s lesson, but I taught it while she graded papers. I do not have any questions about what I have observed.
Today I took attendance. I also lead a small group. I observed that their are different types of groups on different classes. In one of my classes I worked well with the group that I had, but in others, they kept getting off task. Today were in stations. In my station we were on the computers. We were trying to find games that went with the reading TEKS. I do not have any questions about what I observed.
