Observation at the Catholic School

Filed under: Uncategorized — by hcoggin @ 8:59 pm

I have completed one day of observation at the Catholic school and let me first just say that this school has the nicest people working there and the most fantabulous lunches! It’s like a big family eating lunch, instead of a elementary or middle school cafeteria. And the food was delicious!

Observing in the art classroom was fun, and informative, as well. Mainly because I was able to observe two different kindergarden classes making art. Most public schools in the area won’t let kindergarden go to art classes, so it was really neat to see this happening. And also very informative for observing purposes to see how much a little kid can take in during one class period. They do not sit still well, but painting was a joy to watch them experience. 🙂 Also, for all those out there that might not have realized, when one five or six year old asks to use the restroom, the entire room suddenly needs to go to the restroom! It was rather comical, but maybe that was because I was only observing, and haven’t experienced that phenomena for more than a day. 😉

Overall, though, I thoroughly enjoyed my first day watching and observing (which means helping for the teachers at the Catholic school … I never sat down a moment I was there except for lunch! 🙂 …).
