It started great, I was introduced to books at an early age and have many lovely childhood memories surrounded by them: sitting on the lap of my mother, laying on the floor with my father and his ginormous feather pillow (was it really that big or was I really small), visiting the library gathering them or listening to the librarians weekly read aloud just to name a few. With all of the enriching opportunities within my early childhood I was able to read before I entered Kindergarten.
The key moments that stick out at the end of the school day are teachable moments and ought to be taken note of. When doing research for my student teaching placement, I found an article entitled, Reflective Teaching the author of Fairy Dust Teaching shares insight into the reflective practice and provides a free daily reflection sheet. The sheet includes several questions to gather your thoughts about the daily activities and as you write about them in a way that would assist you in becoming the best teacher you can be.
