I am so exhausted.
I am at a private school for the first time.
I am teaching in England again, which I have not done on a regular basis since 2007.
I am back to full time which I have not done for several months.
Yep, it will take some time to get back in the swing of things.
I am never very patient as I get into the swing of things.
My class is lovely, although the timetable is like nothing I've seen before. It's a bit to get used to. There is a lot of curriculum to get to know.
|love these letters....think I may spread them out a bit more|
|this school does VCOP (Vocab, Connectives, Openers, Punctuation)|
|students add to the board with sticky notes during lessons|
I thought it was going to be on the easy side because I'm not teaching Science, Math, Music or PE.
However, I'm teaching:
-English, Big Writing, History, Geography, DT (Design & Technology) and Gymnastics to my Year 5 class.
When they are in other lessons, I teach:
-English, Big Writing and History to Year 6
-Guided Reading to Year 1 one day a week
-Geography to Year 4 one day a week
-RE (overview of religions) to Year 3 one day a week
-Gymnastics for Year 3-Year 6 all afternoon on Fridays!
I'm sure everything will fall into place, but I foresee my weekends to be filled with learning about World War 2, the Tudors, Rainforests, Judaism, Slipper-making (DT), and grading English papers.
What have I got myself into??!! The headteacher and Governors did take me and the other new teacher down to the pub Friday after school which was a nice end to the week though.
On a brighter note, I added a Music in the Classroom tab (with a few links) to keep track of music I like to play in K-1 classrooms.......please click on the tab and have a look. I was inspired by several blogs that have done posts about music recently.
What music do you like to play in your classroom?
