Week 10- Meeting my Mentor :)

After a bit of rescheduling, this week I spent the morning at Rochedale State School meeting Prep B and Mrs Broadbent. Just like Hayley I was a little nervous at first, but I had a wonderful morning and I am feeling relieved and excited about my upcoming professional experience. I learnt a lot in such a short time. Prep B not only follows the Australian Curriculum but it also adopts the inquiry processes of the International Baccalaureate. It was very interesting hearing how Mrs Broadbent merged this programme with the Australian Curriculum. The children were adorable. They were not shy at all. They told me all about the different things they do during the day including ‘Groovy Group Times’ and ‘Discovery Learning.’ At the moment they are learning about how animals and plants survive so I think my planning will extend on this learning topic. I found out the children have access to a Starboard, 4 classroom computers, digital camera, video camera, ezi speak microphone, B Bots and a variety of educational software. This is a great start so over the next few weeks I will have some brainstorming to do. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my morning and cant wait to begin my PRAC.
