Reflections on day 1

I am now home, fed and still to have a shower after my day in the prep classroom.  I had a science lesson today, teaching about different materials and their properties which will ultimately result in the students making a wind ornament that can go outdoors.  I had an experiment  planned with the testing of water proof, weight, noise and strength of each material, as each of these elements would make an outdoor wind ornament successful.  I used the IWB to introduce the lesson finding a interactive game that the students could play.  The students responded well to this.   In the feedback my mentor says she has now been sold on some of the benefits of the IWB.  I could play for hours just tapping the board and clicking on stuff.
