Today is my first time here to teach them. And I have to teach 4 class today. So tired but its really meaningful to me.
My first class is M 2/2. They’re really noisy and play by their own self with their smartphone. But, they’re still can managerial. 48 students in this class.
Today my topic is about fruit. I have to encourage the students to speak. Because my especially field in English is for speaking. In Thailand, you’ll meet with 3 or 4 teachers. They have different teachers for each field. E.g they have their own teacher for speaking, grammar, etc.
So, I made 2 stage of games. The first stage I need 3 volunteers for playing the first stage. In the first stage, one student has to guess what kind of fruit is that. They’ll have the paper that sticks to their forehead. And other students just have to say yes or no.
The second stage, they have to continue the last paragraph of the fruits. E.g Banana, Avocado, Orange.
And that’s not going well with them. And I got an evaluation from my cooperating teacher that, I have to speak slowly so they can understand. Because most of them aren’t understand in English. So we have to speak slowly and repeat it 2 times.
Actually, it’s giving me like a mental breakdown. I’m feeling so bad with them like I’m failed already. But my cooperating teacher, mam jane got my back and said that it’s okay, this is your first day. All of the teachers always feel the same with you for their first
My second class is M 2/9. They’re better than 2/2. They’re also playing by themselves but most of them are participating at my games.
Even some of them are really exciting with my games. From this class, I’m trying to speak slowly, and I get the microphone so all of the students can hear me clearly.
And that’s work! I’m feeling so much better with them, and that really makes me happy. Thanks M 2/9 for made my day 🙂
My third class is M 2/6. And it happens again, they’re really made my day!💙 it’s hard to make all of them to participate in my games but it’s okay .. they’re very kind and cute. So far this is the best class for today.
And the last class is M 2/8. And .. I really have no idea with this class. Maybe this is one of the things that I’ve to learn, how to handle the class based on their daily activities. But I just have 2class for observation because, in last Friday, the students have some outside activities.
So its little bit hard for me to understand them. Because it’s my first time meeting them and I’ll teach them at that time. They’re even still can’t understand me (some of them) and they are too shy, and it’s okay.
Today, really change my mood haha. Because I don’t think it’ll go well but I wonder are they enjoying the time when they’re learning English or not. At the end of the class, I’ll cross check their name. So if I call their name they’ve to stand up and introduce their self.
I just found some problems on my first teaching, such as many students still noisy when the teacher already come in the class, the students keep drawing even they have some worksheet to do, and in the middle of learning activities some of the students sleeping in the class, focus on their smartphone or they aren’t interested in the topic.
Maybe I’ve to learn more about this, and I hope tomorrow is better for me because in Tuesday I have 2 class 🙂
