I am so excited! Students have been in school since January 4 which is when I began my student teaching. I have already started taking on responsibilities in the classroom such as daily living (attendance, jobs, etc.), behavior, guided reading, and centers. Also today was my first day doing actual teaching. Student teachers from our school are asked to observe for the first 1-2 weeks and then start assuming responsibilities of the teacher once they have observed what she does. They also begin picking up one subject area a week until they are teaching all subjects which we call solo teaching. So I am in week 1 and am teaching science. If all goes well I will be starting my 4 weeks of solo teaching the first week of March!!! Just figured I would share my experiences so far....how is everyone else's student teaching going so far?
