Pengalaman Praktek Mengajar
Alhamdulillah, all is well.
I am so happy that I can manage my first experience of being an
elementary school teacher without any significant mistakes.
At first, I was so confused, what kind of lesson that I should
deliver. Since I was chosen to be assessed on the first day, I
prepared the simple materials of “Sifat Bahan dan Kegunaannya” with a
fine RPP (lesson plan).
Luckily, I had a chance to observe the class before my show goes on.
There were some adjustments in the practices. I did not prepare to
make rules at class, later I found out it is important to make rules
before you start the lesson. I also learned that by choosing a
different way of making a group, students will be interested. I have a
strategy to make the students be nice in the classroom. I made them to
move and write things down when they observe the materials. Honestly,
I did not prepare to give many materials. I was a little bit worry
because this week is supposed to be the review week before final exam.
I worried that my lesson will not help them that much in preparing for
Going through the lesson, I found it is difficult for them to
understand the material.Then I questioned, how come if I give them
harder material? Will they receive it well?
It was a disaster.
First grade was crazy. I can’t handle them properly. What I prepared
in the lesson plan faded away. I planned to teach them about “Suku
Bangsa di Indonesia” and “Bhinneka Tunggal Ika”. However, they did not
know about what “Suku Bangsa” is @_@.
So, I just gave them a dictation about “Suku Bangsa” and they tried to
write what I told. Worse, some of them still can’t write, so I have to
be patient, re-tell the words, one by one. Later, I brought them to
the play field because they want to do PE lesson. The PE’s teacher did
not come in the morning, so they asked me to do PE time.
In the playfield, I can’t handle them. They running around and I don’t
know what should I do :|
Luckily, the time is over.
Lesson learned for today, do not ever follow what the students want
without any preparation. If you want to teach the first grade, you
have to be ready with something that makes theim fully attend the
lesson. Perhaps story telling with the costume or sing a song that
they know will be good :D
I hope some lessons that I gave today can be memorized for a long term
and be useful for their life. Amin.
