So tomorrow is the BIG DAY.. well I have already had one day before the school holidays to observe my mentor and the children. However still feeling like a fish out of the water. It is funny how now after doing three pracs and obtaining a job in the industry how much my confidence has actually gone up. I feel comfortable taking the class and talking to students but still feel very daunted by the planning and implementation of lessons. I am really hoping that this prac will get me over that fear and make me a better pre-service teacher.
At the moment I have a lot of ideas in my head but nothing on paper. Thank goodness my mentor is amazing and is happy to go over things tomorrow and show me the ins and outs. I feel like day one or even week one is such a blur with trying to understand the classroom routine, how the teacher works and how the students work not to mention all the other extra curricula activities they do. I think it will definitely be a juggling game but lets hope I can produce some really great lessons.
Wish me luck 🙂
