activity review of outcomes and
what was learned

Susan the planning and preparation for this lesson was well done even though you
had to make a few adjustments on the fly. That just shows you are flexible and able
to respond in a positive way to unforeseen circumstances. You did have your
outcomes clearly stated and your assessment was aligned. Special needs in the class
were taken into consideration.

You have a lovely warm rapport with the students. You have expectations for
appropriate behavior and the students know what they are. Routines and
procedures have been implemented making the class as a whole run smoothly. Your
attention getters are working well and you are using random selection at times. Any
recall or redirect was done very quietly and certainly infrequently. These students
were well engaged and a wonderful culture for learning is evident. They look to you
as their teacher and even with Mrs. Spidell away the classroom was orderly and well

The instruction was carried out in an organized manner. You were worried about
timing but there did not seem to be many gaps between the finish time for either
group. Your directions were clear and you did check for understanding. You
displayed lots of enthusiasm and positive feedback for the students. You do need to
watch your oral communication and be sure to use proper grammar at all times. You
will see where I mentioned a couple of things in my notes. I know you are aware of
this and that is really half the battle. You used a variety of formats in your lesson
which I liked. There was some whole group and some paired activities where the
students had an opportunity to interact with one another. They also had a chance to
move around and not just sit for any amount of time.

Well done Susan! You do a very good job with this split class and I am certain it will
not be too long before you have a class of your very own!
