WOW! First day. Where did it go? My first day of professional experience went so quick! My two HPE mentor teachers are fabulous. They are passionate and they are very animated in their teaching and are definitely role models and teachers to develop good habits and strategies off!
After the first two lessons, I was already teaching classes and showing initiative and confidence. Safe to say, first day exceeding my expectations! Now since my context is HPE, our lessons will be focusing on athletic skills since the athletics carnival is coming up.
Already, I have created TWO lesson plans for this week integrating ICTs. Honestly, all the classes will be outside on the track however, thanks to PEGeek.com, I have found some iPads apps I will be integrating into the Year 5 triple jump lessons. Now, triple jump is quick tricky to accomplish. Even now, I have to be reminded how to execute it properly.
So, using the iPad called, Slow Fast Slow, this will allow me to record the students triple jumping (3 at a time) and to show the students in slow motion how to correct their triple jump technique! What a ripper.
My second lesson plan will involve demonstrating a Youtube video in the hall (which is conveniently next to the netball courts!) showing the Year 4 classes how to execute a chest pass in netball accurately.
Considering we only have 30 minutes to do the lesson, it’s easier for me to keep the ICTs simple and convenient since HPE is very practical and students need constant reminders and feedback especially with athletics skills.
Hopefully, these two lesson plans are good starters to begin with and they will be a success (fingers crossed)
Other HPE prac students, feel free to share and bounce off others in brainstorming how to integrate ICTs in five of our HPE lesson plans!
Happy 2nd day and rest well!
