Hello - this is my very first post on AtoZ Teacher but I am very excited about it! I am currently in a 3rd grade class and am very comfortable with the kids and my cooperating teacher. I was placed in this room in September and fell in love with the class. When my field experience ended in December I continued to visit, about once a week now, between my other college courses and personal life. I admire the cooperating teacher and she has taught me so much...she is the type of teacher I aspire to be! The kids are like my own and I am so grateful to be in there with them. Normally I do small groups or one-on-one work, but I have co-taught once back in October for a few hours. My cooperating teacher has asked me to teach another less in two weeks and this time I will be on my own! Since I am much more comfortable with the class and norms and rules I am so excited and really ready to do this. She suggested a lesson on myths. I was planning a read aloud (maybe King Midas and the Golden Touch?) but I need some type of activity or lesson afterward. My cooperating teacher mentioned having them make their own myths. I am just looking for any suggestions or ideas and it is all VERY appreciated! I really want to impress my cooperating teacher and make it fun for my students. Thank you so much in advance!
