We all love a good lesson.
One that is engaging during the class and after it ends, makes you feel like your time in the classroom has been worthwhile because you know you have learnt something. Planning a good lesson is a skill and it takes passion for a teacher to want to think out of the box to come up with an interesting AND effective lesson for the kids.
Truth to be told, it is not always easy to make a lesson fun and meet the learning objectives. At times, inspiration strikes but when it does not, we come together as a team to brainstorm great ideas. How do we brainstorm for ideas? It may involve looking at the resources that are around us. For instance, we decide to capture the aroma (and odour!) of coffee, popcorn and fish by putting these items in a covered cup to help our children experience and learn descriptive phrases on smells in writing.
