I'm not a conventional teacher and many people don't agree with my methods. My #1 concern is to create a good atmosphere in the classroom. This means that games and fun are essential. The kids had a lot of fun today, we played UNO but the game also featured questions on the Bible - so it wasn't a waste of time. 30 min. of hard work + 30 min. of games (incl. biblical questions): this seems like a balanced lesson plan to me, what do you think? And there's another problem: one of my students is really tough and I have to change my lesson plan whenever he shows up (i.e. more games and less work). Believe me, he really is that bad. After the lesson, I was approached by the mother of one of the kids. She wasn't rude and she didn't make any complaints, she just asked me about her son's behaviour but I had the clear feeling that I was being analysed. She asked me for my phone number, so that she could contact me whenever her son had to skip classes. Is this a good sign or a bad one? Maybe I'm being paranoid but I'm afraid she's going to move her son to another class because of my methods. Please pray for my lessons, I really want this to work!
