As a grade 4 teacher I tend to use personal experiences quite often. It causes the students to make real life connections. They relate to the objective more speedily and figure out that the instructor is Human, just like them. I love it!

Thanks a bunch for adding your comment. I love to hear about how other teachers are using personal experiences to teach with. You are so right about them realizing that you are human too. I love how you put that! I hope you have a great end of the school year!
