Friday was a nice last day to be helping out in the classrooms. I spent the first part of the day in one of the 1/2 classrooms then the second part in one of the 3/4 classrooms. The last part of the day I spent in one of the Prep classrooms.
In the 1/2 class I helped with their reading activity and in the 3/4 class I was there to help with spelling and reading.
It was a very hot day so the last part of the day was fairly lazy and the preps played dead fish and did a easy light numeracy activity and sung a couple of songs; one was to learn the days of the week.
The very last thing on the agenda for the day was a whole school assembly. The Prep students were all packed up and ready but there had been some confusion about the time the assembly started so they had nothing planned. Their teacher decided on an activity however there was some trouble getting the interactive whiteboard to work. The Preps were getting restless sitting on the mat doing nothing so I played Simon Says with them so that they didn't start mucking around. I thought that it was great they all had a fun time playing and the teacher thanked me for doing something with them while she was busy. I thought that it was great as it showed that I can use my initiative in the classroom and not just be passive looking for direction all the time.
At the end of the day they had their weekly school assembly. After introducing the new school captains and the house captains who then handed out the awards the 3/4's put on a presentation about the multiple intelligences.
Part of the presentation was a dance to one of the songs in the Little Mermaid film, the song 'Under the Sea'. I loved seeing the presentation.
I will miss being at the school but I also love being at uni.
I would like to say thank you to all of the staff at the local primary school for having me at the school (again). I have had a great time at the school helping out and I have learnt lots. I would like to say a special thank you as well to Miss. V for the lovely card and chocolates.
