Training, first BEAM day, lesson planning. Had a great time meeting our classroom and introducing the theme for the semester
BEAM on Thursday and community day tour on Saturday!! It was super neat to see Olneyville and learn about the community
Attended Teacher training
Did great partner work and the kids really bonded over making art for each other
Attended Community Corps workshop on Providence Public Schools. Was incredibly informative
Got more familiar with how the first graders respond to different activities, I.e. what works and what doesn't. It was hard to keep their attention last Thursday, so planning an activity that is more engaging and that doesn't allow as much opportunity for distraction
Meeting the kids was an educational experience in itself. I come from a school and neighborhood where most students are very fluent in English. Some of the students in my classroom, even as first graders, were switching back and forth between Spanish and English with each other, which was interesting to see.
