OhMyGosh….it has been crazy! I have been waiting for my observation for the last two weeks. It isn’t like I don’t do my job normally…but waiting for them to show up drives me nuts. I feel like at 9:01 if I am not already at stations, I am in trouble.
So… bright and early Friday morning here they come walking in (before our reading block even begins officially). I was totally caught off guard (although upon reflection I should have known!)
So in they come and I just get flustered and forget to talk about my objective.
Forgot to introduce my lesson completely.
I just forgot.
They stayed over an hour…and my kids (I feel) did a great job. We are talking about Kinders, who stayed with me (on task) for over an hour! Yay! Who knows if the observers will think it was a great lesson, but for me, I was pleased with my kiddos, even if I did forget the beginning.
And now for what I have been up to today. My Kinders will be taking DIBELS in January and have to be assessed for nonsense words (eek!) So I worked on new pattern block mats to use for nonsense (real and silly) words. The patterns in this pack are different than my other packs * which include sight words for first and second grades and also letter naming)

Check back tomorrow night for a great big freebie!
