We rearranged the classroom into groups. I like this set up much better than the rows because students are given more responsibility to take care of themselves. This morning, Mrs. C told them they have to prove that they can sit in a different setting or we are going to have to move the desks back to the rows. So far, they are not holding up their end of the deal.
Tomorrow I have my first observation. I’m a little nervous but Mrs. C keeps telling me that I’ll be fine. I just hope that the students are not as talkative and active as they are today. The projects are starting to come due. We have many lesson plans due all in one week’s period. I am trying my best to stay on top of things and not fall behind. Give me a few weeks and the procrastination side of me will take over!
