I was a little nervous starting out on my small group lesson, especially after I had
misplaced the sheets I had prepared earlier. I felt a little flustered by that as
everything was organised the night before. However, my mentor teacher said I did
appear to be calm on the outside so I was pleased with that. I think had I been less
flustered I would have remembered some things I almost forgot.

All up the students were helpful answering any questions I gave them and also
were attentive to the small group lesson I was teaching.
