The constructing stage

Reflecting on my own planning and teaching (practical experiences), I find I strive to bring (learning) concepts to life for children, in an effort to engage learners. However, I often do so in a manner, that the concepts or constructing of learning has not been appropriately achieved or made clear before I head to transforming. I think I have such a fear of being ‘boring’ and for students to find school boring that overdo all my teaching. I try to squeeze so many elaborate explanations and resources into my planning that my lessons tend to go for three times the length (not good). This coming practical experience, I will be aware of this and will plan lessons for the constructing stages of learning that are clear and understandable, that also incorporate student’s interests and learning styles.

Keep it clear, simple but with hint of sparkle.
