For my Senior Practicum class, I got placed in a 5th grade classroom at Jefferson Elementary in Rigby, Idaho! Today was my full day to be with these 5th graders. So far so good. I also taught my first lesson to 33 students at once! (I think the most I have ever taught was 20ish students...) The last two days of being in the classroom all day I have come home exhausted! On Friday (my first day), I came home and took a TWO hour nap! Today I have not taken a nap, but I am worried I will pass out while doing homework!
I hope this gets easier, and I get less tired as I spend more time in the classroom!
(Sorry there is no picture of the school, I tried to find one online, but couldn't...)
