Hi, As part of my interview lesson next week I have to give a (no longer than) 20 minute lesson on 'any stimulus of my choice'. I will be teaching a group of 12 year 2 students of mixed ability. I have no idea what they are currently learning and so have the freedom to choice anything to teach. My thoughts are to do a kind of circle time/PSHE lesson where I bring with me a 'magic box' and have in it some objects that are important to me. I would then give the children a couple of mins to discuss with a partner an object that they would put in their magic box and why. I will then have the children in a circle and go round and give each child an opportunity to share what they would put. At the end of the lesson I am thinking we could play a memory game (like the supermarket game) "in my magic box i would have my teddy"...and the next person adds an item, remembering the previous items as well...) Perhaps I would also get the chn to draw their items on a little whiteboard so we can use them as prompts in the memory game... I would really appreciate any thoughts on whether this sounds like a good little lesson or not?!?! and how to improve/change it.... Thanks!
