Observing a Preschooler Essay

  • My Early Classroom Observation

I observed in a Family and Consumer Sciences room, so there were multiple stoves and cupboards on the outside edges of the room with six tables in the middle.

Observing in Mrs. Lang’s classroom was an eye-opening experience for me. It was interesting to be viewing a classroom with a whole new perspective. I never realized just how much work goes into successfully operating a classroom. For example, in Mrs. Lang’s first period class,…
