SUMMARY

Nice small group, as most Level 4 groups are this Cycle. You have set the room up properly, getting everyone together and not letting them
scatter. Rapport, as in previous observations, is very good. You have a relaxed style, but you get the students working quickly and the lesson is
all about them.

Good choice of topic, and Book Widgets breathes life into reading activities. The fact that students are familiar with the exercise is a big help
too they are quickly on task, and you can spend more of the lesson getting them to do something, and less trying to set it up. Theres a lot to
be said for repeating task types in lessons, and this lesson demonstrates the advantages of it.

Your timing is good you have achievable amounts of work and manage to move the class on though the stages. This lesson is all about the
students. You get them on task and working, and take a side role for almost all of the class. This is exactly what I want to see.

Youve really settled into the Foundations classroom, and this was a good example of your classroom teaching. I would recommend other
teachers observe your classes. You have got it, whatever that is, that makes it possible for you to teach our students and get them working.

I look forward to our next observation.
