I interviewed with a school and have been invited back to meet with a small group of first grade students next week. Rather than doing a traditional demo lesson (teaching an academic standard), I was asked to do an activity where the students and I get to know each other. The principal said she is looking to see how I interact with the students. I was hoping to get some feedback on what I have planned. Thanks in advance. Before beginning the activity, I will go over my expectations, just as I would on the first day of school (practicing the attention signal, using a visual to teach them how to sit on the floor, etc.). Anticipatory set: I have an "About Your Teacher" book that I plan to read to the students. It's seven pages long and lets them know about me. Instruction: I will pass out a paper called "Math About Me". There are five boxes for them to fill in. I plan to have us do two of the boxes together. In the first box they will write their name and in the second they will count how many letters are in their name. I'm brining a small whiteboard so I can do these first two boxes with them. Guided practice: Students will fill in the last three boxes, color a boy or girl head, and glue everything together. During this time I will assist students when needed. Closure: Students will share their "Math About Me" papers with the small group.
