Week 2 the new world or teaching

Hallow ever one. this week I had a shock in my class and that was my lesson plans. I though that I had a long enough plan but I was wrong about that. What happened was a simple day of going over some power tool and parts turned in to a day of the students not even caring about it at all they just wont to run throw it and talk to etcher. So the next day we did the same thing but I gave them a grade on it. the students look a little so prise wen I told them that. they did not under stand why I was giving them a grade on this work because they were my 2 year student. well I said to them it has been a long time cents you all were here and I need to know what they remember from last year. But I was right a bout it they did not remember all of it so now they have a better look on what I am doing with them.

Hi. I teach in 90 minute blocks, so I have finished my instruction before the bell rings as well. This summer at NTI, I was given a "bell to bell" activity sheet. This has proved useful if I need a "time filler". There are games and activities that are short but interactive with the students. The classes seem to enjoy these and the bell seems to ring before you know it. I know that NTI can provide this if you don't have one yet. Good Luck. LKoser
