A new semester has begun and it feels as though I never left school. Last semester was challenging but very beneficial. I learned a lot about the many different ways you can teach social studies lessons with out using the book as the main guide line. In block one we would play games and do many group activities that we could use in our classrooms. This allowed us to think outside the box, and be able to teach lessons in a way that gets the students active and learning in a hands on environment, instead of just doing a worksheet. One class activity I particularly enjoyed was the day we made our class flag and played Apples to Apples. I had so much fun and it allowed our class to collaborate on the same task so that we were all able to contribute to the flag. I am looking forward to this semester and the group activities that we will do to help us to become more effective teachers for our future classroom.  :)
