Day 258-January 12th: testing my flexibility
Today, going into my skills lesson, I decided my goal was to be flexible. And boy was I. Originally we were supposed to have a lockdown drill, but then an announcement came on saying there wouldn't be one. Then we had issues with fitting the number of students into groups of 3 or 4. Instead of splitting groups up I was flexible and allowed for a group of 5. Then because the kids were having such a hard time with the game I quickly invented a new faster closure so that they could have longer to play. I'm proud of myself. This goal--flexibility-- will be one that I will have every single time I teach a lesson. It is one of my current weaknesses (especially when it comes to teaching).
