LESSON EVALUATION (to be completed AFTER the lesson)

Assessment of Lesson Objective and Suggestions for Improvement:

Teacher self-reflection and self-evaluation:

The children were to think about what they would do on a cold wet night to keep warm. They then had to share with a
partner, close their eyes and think about it and then write in their journals. i then helped the students to spell.
Overall my mentor teacher Cath was happy with their writing. I found many wrote a lot while some such as Isaiah
only wrote a few words. He seems to be hard to keep on task.
My own performance I believe could have been better in some ways, such as addressing the class to write the

beginning sentence on the board before we started to write.
