I found that this lesson worked very well overall in terms of student engagement. Everyone was eager to try
out the new game “Snakes in the Grass” and by the time the class was over, I could hear some students saying
that they had a lot of fun and this made me super happy. I was given some feedback from my partner teacher
that really helped me in terms of getting the students’ attention. I am usually very concerned about the time
and making sure I get through as much of my lesson as possible and the advice I was given was to let the
students completely settle down and be silent before I go ahead and give the next set of instructions. I was also
told to delegate tasks to the students more often. Like for instance, in the warm up, I set up pylons for the
students to know where they needed to be and picked them up when the warm up was over. That is something
the students could easily do themselves if I instruct them to do so and it provides more accountability to them
as well. This is something I never really thought about until that point, but it is something I intend to try in

Even though I am still working on my teacher voice, I do find that the students usually understand the tasks
I’ve described and I find demonstrations extremely helpful in this regard too, especially since the class is
conducted in Spanish. Even if they do not understand what I am saying, the demos help to make my
instructions clear.
