There are only 4 students in the class today, but Khadija carries on as per normal

Khadija continues to be extremely confident in front of the class (perhaps even more
so than last week!), and she continues to use an appropriately loud and energetic
voice as a key teaching tool. Great!

Khadija models the words and movements to the A,B,C song very actively and very
enthusiastically. This encourages all students to do the same!
The same comments go for the second song: Khadija utilizes her voice and her body
language in ways that a very experienced teacher would! Excellent performance

Very suitable introduction on how to pronounce the sound SH. Khadija has now
grasped the level of her students. In speaking to her after the lesson, I also realize that
she is very aware of the strengths and weaknesses of individual students.

Khadija also does an excellent job of soliciting the students who are not answering.
Mira! Read please! or Amna, I cant hear you, says Khadija.

Instructions to the activities are very clear; Khadija is very methodical here, and she
models what students have to do in order to ensure they understand.

Khadija has taken in the feedback given to her after the previous observation:

When Hassan completes his task, Khadija proposes another (very suitable)
extension activity
- When Mira completes her worksheet, Khadija encourages her to attempt the more
difficult play dough activity
Khadija does a very good job of exploiting incorrect responses from children: she uses
these situations as teaching and learning opportunities.

Khadija supports students extremely well, by helping them complete the tasks on
their own. She gives students plenty of positive reinforcement (she regularly says
excellent job! or its easy, you can do it!) and has obviously built very positive
relationships with them.

Khadija is very caring of her students. She handles a difficult (apparently a jealous)
student very well by showing her that she cares for her, whilst continuing her duties
with the other students in the class. Khadija handled this situation very well indeed:
she did not make it worse, but she also ensured that the child in question was not
given unnecessary special treatment.

While supporting the students during the independent activities, Khadija is also
mindful of assessing their attainment of the given learning outcome(s).

During this lesson, Khadija spoke excellent English! No grammar or pronunciation
