355 Field Experience: Week 1 (4th Grade)
My first day at Hartnett Elementary was primarily an observation day. The host teacher let my partner and I tour the equipment closet for possible ideas in future lesson plans. They had a lot of equipment which I look forward to using later this semester. The 4th grade class came in and immediately got going on their badminton tournament they had been playing for a few weeks now. The gym was set up with 4 nets which allowed for all 16 students to be playing at the same time. Throughout the unit the students had learned multiple shots, court dimensions, and rules which reflected in their gameplay. I helped officiate scores and boundaries for some of the games.
