important area in a

Classroom Preparation Questions:


1. Were the materials, resources and equipment well prepared by
the teacher? Why do you think so?
Yes, the materials, resources and equipment were prepared well by the
teacher. The teacher had all the resources she did not need in
organisers and all the materials and resources she needs in reach
whenever she needed them. For example, when she asked the
students to practice writing she had the books ready in a basket next
to her as well as sharpened pencils and erasers.
2. Did the topic of the lesson and learning activities, together
with the structure of the lesson, appear to maintain students
interest and motivation? How do you know this?

Khawla AlNuaimi H00330338

Yes, the activities maintained the students interest and motivation.


This is because the teacher gave enough time to each activity, and she
did not extend it so that the students would get bored. Also, the
teacher motivated the students by giving them star stamps that
encouraged them to focus on her topic discussion.
3. Is there anything you observed that you would/would not do in
your planning and preparation as a teacher?
I would keep the traditional area as a permanent area.
I would not make my students feel bad about their selfs by
discouraging them. Instead I will encourage them to answer and raise
their hand even if they were not sure of their answer.
