Reflection: (What have you learned about your students? How will this inform future instruction?)
On the day that this lesson was implemented, I felt very prepared with my materials and the content I was hoping to teach. The lesson, however, did not go as
planned. The students were not interested and were not as eager to work with me as they had been in previous experiences. There are a few reasons I think that
this happened. First of all, it had been 3 weeks since we had seen most of the students, meaning it had also been 3 weeks since the students had gotten
information on nocturnal animals. In the mean time, they moved on to aquatic animals and were more excited about their upcoming trip to the aquarium.
Additionally, that day the Easter Bunny was in the school and taking pictures with the students. Students were coming to the table and being taken away while I
was giving the lesson. This was likely very distracting to the students and disrupted the flow of learning.
It is also possible that this lesson wasnt as engaging or exciting for young students as I thought it would have been. I know that it happened where a teacher can
plan a lesson and the students just wont be interested in participating in it.
Because I did not succeed in implementing this lesson in the first two groups, I decided not to carry on giving this lesson to the rest of the class, therefore my data
checklist for this lesson is incomplete.
