So, as some of you may know, I would like to move to first grade next year. Rather than just moving me to first grade, my principal in conducting interviews next week. Six people are being interviewed, including myself. The interviews are 1 hour long, followed by a 15 minute literacy lesson, where I will be teaching one of the first grade classes. (Personally, I think this is rather silly, since my principal has observed me teacher many times in the past 3 years!) Anyway, he is going to be looking for how I interact with the kids. I am thinking of doing a read-aloud, focusing on a CAFE strategy from the comprehension category, since read-alouds are such a great way to connect and interact with kids. I could maybe tie in a quick smartboard activity, too. However, I am worried that, because I am used to kindergarten, I will make the lesson too simple/easy. I was thinking making inferences would be a good topic, since children at older grades still struggle with this concept. What do you guys think? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
