Teacher Evaluation

Today I evaluated Emily in her first grade language arts. I went over a checklist with her of things she should know. A teacher evaluation is exactly what it says - an evaluation of how well the teacher fulfilled her responsibility of teaching. Today I learned there are 4 areas in which my teaching was not as effective as I had hoped it had been:

1. Contractions - a tool to combine two words with an apostrophe, not labor pains associated with childbirth.
2. Simile - a comparison of two things using the words "like" or "as", not just a word that rhymes with Emily.
3. Synonym - a word with a similar meaning to another word, not a spice used in baking or cooking.
4. Thesaurus - a resource used to find synonyms, not a type of dinosaur.
