I remember an assignment I was given when I was student teaching. I was asked to write a reflection each day. The reflection had to include flowers and tomatoes. Flowers were the teaching moments that went well and tomatoes were the moments I wanted to forget! Last week, I felt like I was hit with a bushel of tomatoes. I had a substitute teacher in my room on Wednesday. I felt like it ruined the whole week. This week, I am going to try very hard to teach the concept of characterization. Not sure how it will go, but if I write my goal here it is more likely to be accomplished. Next week, I hope to share bouquets of flowers.
I am using Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's Won't-Pick-Up-Toys Cure since Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle is described so well in the beginning.
