It’s the end of my third week of working as a teacher in Kl. I have so much to update here, I don’t know where to start. But first of all, the tracking system I mentioned by the first week about homework submission was converted to something more practical for my kids. I have students sitting in 5 groups in my classroom. So, I have appointed 5 group leaders. I gave each of them a notebook to report any missing homework and misbehaving during the instruction time. That way, I can hold the kids accountable.
The next thing I wanna share is my work desk. I have cleared the mess as I found an empty box which I can use to store the books I need to mark. Besides, I have probably mentioned this, I’ve brought a three tier paper tray to the school, and it works wonderfully. I put three labels on each of the tiers: now, maybe, and later.
Apart from fulfilling my obligations, I took some time out this week to prepare some materials I can paste in the classroom. I love the fact that I’m entering this school in the middle of the year so I don’t have to do everything from scratch as the former teacher has pretty much done most of the hard work. Whatever extra work I’m doing now can serve the purpose of practice and preparation for the next year. One of the things I’m doing is redecorating the notice board as the kids were complaining that they are bored with the current outlook. So here are the labels I’ve made for the classroom board.
