Lightbulb The Chronicles of a Teacher

So, some of you know I'm studying in school to become a teacher. If you didn't know, now you do. I warn you, this thread is going to require you to think, so leave now if you don't want to do that. No trolls are allowed, either. This thread is for intelligent people to discuss a serious matter that may impact the world of education one day.

In my studies to become I teacher, I have to make lesson plans and creative games and activities for a elementary school classroom. Most of the time, since it's mainly online work, I don't have time to e-mail my classmates for input. So I turn to my parents, friends, SG64, and others for advice.

Since many of you either have children of your own or are still in school, I decided you guys might have some input for me. This thread is not to toot my own horn, but I would like to offer some of my ideas and hear from you all if you like it or don't. When I post something here, I would like you to really think about how you/your child/your friends would react to it being taught, and offer criticisms accordingly. You can also offer you own ideas, such as, if your class did something neat, I would like to know about it! If you have a cool idea, please let me know!

That way, as I develop my portfolio of teaching work, I can have some real-world advice for what will work and what won't work. I'm sure this will help me grow as a future educator, and give you a little insight into why teachers do what they do.

Thanks for participating!

To get the ball rolling, here's my first idea:

For English, I am doing a Mini-Lesson, where I am to teach a grammatical lesson for at least 10 minutes, but no more than that. This is my big project, and will count for a good part of my grade. I chose do do a game, to make it easy to get everyone involved in what I was teaching. It's meant to be a review game, which means the students should already know the material.

I chose to do a "Grammar Court" or "Grammar on Trial" game. I choose a piece of writing, maybe about a paragraph long, that may contain some grammar errors. The students then form two teams, one team being the Prosecuting team, the other being the Defense. These two teams prepare arguments as to why or why not the writing is grammatically correct. The rest of the class is the jury, who make the final vote on if the sample of writing is grammatically correct or not.

After the game, the teacher recaps on the argument and tells the class what really was wrong or right.

I think this would be a good, engaging activity to use in a real classroom. The only problem is that 10 minutes is nowhere near long enough, so I might just have to do a quick demonstration for my project.

Any suggestions?

(SN: No colors for this post, I don't want to give anyone a seizure trying to read it. xD )

Sounds like a fresh and creative idea. I haven't done anything like that in school before.

Yes!

That's what I was trying to go for.
I want students to actually somewhat enjoy school, at least in my class.

Okay, I'm working on a Lesson Plan for a story called the "Rainbow Fish" maybe you read it. ;3

The plan is about story elements, like setting, characters, conflict, stuff like that...and how they relate to a story. This lesson plan is for Music class, so I need to incorporate music into it somehow. I found a few songs, but I'm not sure. Anybody have any ideas for how I could use music in this lesson? :3

Use music to tell the story. Boom, two birds one stone.

I like some of the ideas but my old high school tried this stuff too. None of the kids (aged 11-16) enjoyed doing them, and just wanted normal lessons. I'm not sure about elementary school kids though, they may appreciate it more.

I'm in elementay education, and kids just love stuff like this. I want to make school fun for them!

Yeah, it gets a bit harder for older students. They don't like to do stuff like this, maybe because they think it's childish to have fun in class?

(had to be done)


I find the idea of a trial intriguing.
but you have to consider the fact that maybe the children may be bored by it.(depending on the age)
You may take costumes with you...maybe you could use a beard

but, as I was saying...it may be fun :3
