Narrative Report On Child Interaction
1. Did you use appropriate, positive language and avoid the use of “OK”?
• Yes, I feel I did use the word “OK” many times, but my overall language I thought was positive

5. How well do you feel you worked as a team player with the other student teachers? Strengths? Challenges?
• Overall, I feel that we are really starting to mesh well together. We know our jobs and we are also getting a better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of one another.

L. Do you see any gaps in communication between yourself and the:
a. Children? – NO, but becoming more firm when need be with a few children
b. Parents? – a little – talking more with my parents as they pick of their child. A few of mine like to get picked up and leave quickly. Possibly engaging more in the morning conversation (if they need to leave fast at the end of the day)
