I just recently co-taught an elementary class and it was quite interesting! I will answer some questions and provide some information on what the lesson was like.
1.What do you think was the favorite part of your lesson for the class?
I like how teaching the “Must Be Santa” song turned out. The kids really seemed to enjoy singing and moving around to the music. Because they enjoyed it, we enjoyed it as well.
2.What is one thing you would do differently if you taught the lesson again?
I might omit the beginning where I introduced them to the “Hello” song. There wasn’t that much time (only 30 minutes of class) and it caused the end to be slightly rushed.
Here is an outline of the lesson:
- Do the Hello song
- Introduce them to the French Horn
- Teach “Must Be Santa”
