Today I attempted to teach the 7th grade adverbial nouns before actually reading the lesson before hand. Big mistake! I got many questions and mixed facial expressions throughout the lesson. I know I didn’t do a good job teaching that class, but I did learn from it. The next class thought the lesson was a piece of cake. I figured out what I did wrong and taught the next class even better. The saying you learn from your mistakes is true, especially with teaching. Tomorrow I will be reteaching, but that’s not a bad thing.
