  • 8. +Tutoring Sessions: I had two different tutoring sessions while I was observing inthe classroom. One student struggled with measuring using a centimeterruler, I worked with her one-on-one so until she coulddemonstrate correctly how to measure items correctly. The other student struggled with word comprehension andvocabulary. I helped her by helping her identify the objects andmatching them with the correct word definition. After makingsure she could identify each word, it was a lot easier for her todetermine the definition. The tutoring sessions helped me to be patient and thorough.
  • 9. +Tips for the future: Multiple class bathroom breaks throughout the day to avoidstudents having to miss class time to use the bathroom Only the teacher being allowed to sharpen pencils to avoiddisruptions and un-useful walking around the room Dealing with discipline quickly and calmly
  • 10. +Re-cap: I had a great first time field experience. I really enjoyed theschool I was placed at. I loved the smallness of it and all thekids were a joy to work with. I definitely think observations helpme greatly on my journey to become a teacher. I learned a lot of helpful information and tips that I will carry onto when I become a teacher. This experience has really openedup my eyes as to why it is important to be a teacher and howrewarding it is.
